Default Blansky's Beauties- a spinoff from Laverne and Shirley?

Does anybody remember Blansky's Beauties starring Nancy Walker? I read somewhere that show was supposed to have been a spin-off from Laverne and Shirley. Nancy Walker owned a dancing/theatrical group and Carmine from L&S made a few appearances. The show only lasted a season or maybe not even that long.

It actually was a spin -off of Happy Days. Nancy Walker's character was a cousin of Howard Cunningham, I believe. I know she guest stared on HD in a retrospective show.

it was kind-of a spin-off from Happy Days, although it wasn't set in the same time period - Nancy Walker appeared as Howard Cunningham's favorite cousin Nancy Blansky in one episode of Happy Days. Scott Baio and Eddie Mekka were on the show but not as the same characters that they played on Happy Days.

As for whether it is actually a Happy Days spin-off, it all depends on your definition of a spin-off.

I will say it's a spinoff because Nancy Blansky did appear on HD as a relative of Howard Cunningham and then her show premired after her apperance on HD with the same character name she had on HD. So I will say it's a spinoff
