Default 1967 was the time period in the last season of L&S-LOL

What a mess. They are in the year 1959 in the 78-79 season and jump 5 years in the future to 1965 in the 80-81 season. Biggest Inconsistency of the Series.

Default Inconsistency

Yes! The year-switch was pretty jarring. In the first three season, the cast looked era-appropriate: they dressed like they were in the early sixties and had the right hairdos. But in the last Milwaukee season they looked more seventies than sixties, and in California it seemed like they stopped trying to look retro at all!

1960-62 was not the time period for L&S in the 1977-78 season because they crossoverd with Happy Days that season. The 60's era didn't start until the CA years

The 60's started on the show "before" California in episode 50 "New Years Eve 1960."

Which still makes 1967 impossible because

1978-60
1979-61
1980-62
1981-63
1982-64
1983-65

I remember watching an episode from the first season of L&S being in CA and I forget who said it, Lenny or Squiggy, but one of them said something about it's been a couple of years since we were in Milwaukee. So they skipped a couple of years once they moved to California.

Default yes I heard same

Squiggy said in the "Malibu Mansion' episode I think

it's been years since we drove a brewery truck.

how weird...the writers not only moved show to California
but they also jumped ahead to
"happy new year 1965" in the opening credits

The first year in California is pretty strong ( 1980-81 )
Cindy as Shirley is doing great work, keeping the Feenster
as silly as ever.

The TRUTH game show is excellent

and " I DO, I DO " is fun to see L&S unaware of cocaine on a mirror (Laverne flungs it aside to look in hand mirror)

and Squiggy paranoid from pot smoke (reefer gas!!) is hysterical.
