Manic Mondays! Pinky Gets Too Close For Comfort By Meeting Lydia Cornell! Jim J. Bulloch! Nancy Dussault!

Too Close For Comfort has always been one of my favorite shows. It’s just one of those classic sitcoms that they just don’t make anymore. It’s goofy fun for the entire family.

I remember staying up late watching Nick at Night and watching Ted Knight get frustrated with everyone around him. Ah, the sitcoms of the 1980s!

Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here still astounded at how life turns out. In 1981, I remember watching – and loving – the TV series “Too Close for Comfort” and then in 2013 one of the stars from the show, Lydia Cornell, attended our wedding. Pinch me!



Now, granted, when I was watching that show, I had no idea what was going on. I remember being entertained by the cartoon puppet Ted Knight would play with and I loved seeing what the sisters were up to (especially Lydia’s character, Sara).


And, of course, Jim J. Bulloch never ceased to make me laugh. But I was just reading a recap of the series and was like, “Huh?” Funny how that happens.


Still, what a great run it had being able to follow such classic shows in the lineup as “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley,” and “Three’s Company” – all my faves! No wonder I liked “Too Close for Comfort!”


So, how did Lydia end up at our wedding? She worked with my husband on a project not too long ago and she was so sweet. I loved meeting her; she’s just as kind as can be.

In fact, she was at a recent Hollywood Show with her fellow cast members, Jim J. Bulloch

All three were very cool. I’d met both Jim J. Bulloch and Nancy Dussault at play openings a few years back and both were very nice.

Unfortunately, the great and talented Ted Knight passed away in 1986, but his memory lives on in classic shows like this. If you’ve never been able to see this show, it’s available on DVD. Check it out!
