Pretty In Pinky Makes Her Dreams Come True By Meeting David Lander AKA Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley!

There is no one I know that shares my love of the 1980s like Pinky… Well, to be honest I think Laverne and Shirley started in the 1970’s but that’s besides the point, you get the idea. Anyway, Ms. Pinky went out to the Hollywood Collector’s Show to meet… Wait for it… Wait for it… Mr. David Lander! Yep, Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley!

Now, I’m not a huge fan of the collector’ show circuit but if you’re going to do it, get the people that you do not see out and about. Right?

Check out Pinky’s full report after the jump!


Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy here to share with you my joy at meeting the one and only Squiggy (er, David Lander who played Squiggy) from Laverne & Shirley. Now, we’ve talked about my love of all things Happy Days, so it should come as no surprise that Laverne & Shirley (which, I believe, was a spin-off of Happy Days) was one of my fave things in the world. Remember when I met Cindy Williams (aka Shirley)? It was the best day ever!

Actually, I’m over the moon today because I just found out that the next Hollywood Show in April will feature a Laverne & Shirley reunion! That’s right, not only will they have BOTH Laverne & Shirley, but they’ll also have Squiggy, Carmine, and the blonde neighbor from when they moved to Hollywood. Let’s hope they get Lenny!

Still, I was excited to meet David Lander at the Hollywood Show a few weeks ago. When I first saw him he looked so frail that I debated getting the picture, but, come on, how could I not?!? It’s Squiggy! He was very kind and chatted with me for a second. I told him how much I loved the show and he was very cool. I have so many fond memories of watching that show and Lenny & Squiggy never ceased to crack me up. They were perfectly cast and thinking about that show always makes me smile. In fact, I’m singing the theme song in my head right now.
