Default What happened to Veronica and Mrs. Canby?

Both characters suddenly disappeared prior to the end of the 3rd season, but both were credited as stars until the season ended.

Veronica's last appearance was in "Relapse", which ironically was Anne Meara's best performance and earned her an Emmy nomination. In a later episode Archie mentions that she is "away in Florida" but nothing is said after that other than acknowledging that Jose is the Head Cook.

As for Mrs. Canby, her last appearance was in the first part of "Gloria Comes Home", and she is never seen or mentioned again.

I'm watching the episodes for the first time on AntennaTV, so maybe the editing has deleted scenes that explain their disappearances. Anyone know?

I only saw a few eps. first run, so now that Antenna is showing this I watch as often as I can. But I have to miss a lot do to my work schedule, so basically only twice a week.

So ,I am not sure why Mrs. Canby and Vernonia are not there anymore? My guess would be sinse Billie moved in and Stephanie is older now, Mrs.Canby isn't as needed to look after Stephanie and keep house being there are two girls there now ! And Veronica, maybe because Gary Rabinowitz came on board. Billie and Gary basically replaced Mrs.Canby and Veronica. I guess it was thought there would be too many characters ,so two had to go!

I was thrilled when Veronica was gone. I just couldn't stand her character drinking and smoking in the kitchen while preparing the food. It was gross and her attitude sucked too. I do like the actress, but hated the character and was glad to see her gone.

Mrs. Canby on the other hand I loved and wanted to see more of her interaction with Archie. There was such a well of stories that could've been told through both these characters practically living together, I felt it was a huge missed opportunity. I loved all scenes at the house when Archie, Mrs. Canby and Steffie were together. This is (in my opinion), when the show really shined.

I think had the show focused more on the home life with these characters interacting as a family, it would probably have been more successful.

As for where they went, I think the show just cut them loose to make way for the Billie and Gary characters which was a stupid idea. I didn't care for either character at all.
