According to my once-young mind, many of the best moments on TV’s Laverne & Shirley (1976-1983) involved the lovable morons known as Lenny and Squiggy. The characters were created and perfectly played by Michael McKean and David Lander. You probably remember this well.

What you may not remember is that McKean and Lander released an L.P. entitled Lenny & Squiggy Present Lenny and the Squigtones in 1979. I was a proud owner of that slab of wax and a darn fine collection of humorous music and banter it was. Here’s a clip of Lenny and Squiggy from the first season of Laverne & Shirley, where they perform the tune “StarCrossed,” which later appeared on their album.
