Alice first aired on CBS in August of 1976 and ran for nine seasons until July of 1985. The show was based on the 1974 movie Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (which netted its star, Ellen Burstyn, an Oscar.)
The film and series follows a New Jersey mom who moves to Arizona with her young son while looking for work as a singer. She ends up employed as a waitress at a greasy eatery called Mel’s Diner.
Below, you’ll find the intro for Alice season one. I did a fair bit of scrounging around and the version embedded is the best available. As a bonus treat, I’ve included a better quality short scene, also from season one.
