Three's Company is an American sitcom that aired for eight seasons on ABC from March 15, 1977, to September 18, 1984. It is based on the British sitcom Man About the House.

After Norman Fell and Audra Lindley left the series in 1979 for their own sitcom, Don Knotts joined the cast as the roommates' new building manager, Ralph Furley. Following Somers's departure in late 1980, Jenilee Harrison joined the cast as Chrissy's first cousin Cindy Snow, who was soon replaced by Priscilla Barnes as Terri Alden.

The first five were shown as specials during the 1957–58 television season. The remaining eight were originally shown as part of Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse. Its original network title was The Ford Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show for the first season, and The Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse Presents The Lucille Ball–Desi Arnaz Show for the following seasons. The successor to the classic comedy, I Love Lucy, the programs featured the same cast members: Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, William Frawley, and Little Ricky (billed as Richard Keith in his post-Lucy–Desi acting assignments). The production schedule avoided the grind of a regular weekly series.

Having Wonderful Time

Thelma Shaw - Teddy to her …
Thelma Shaw - Teddy to her friends - comes from a working class Bronx background, the Bronx where she still lives in cramped quarters with her parents, her sister and her sister's family. She works in the oppressive steno pool in a New York office, and is a voracious reader in her spare time to better herself. She hopes to marry someone with her same interest in reading, unlike the uncouth young men she usually meets, such as Emil Beatty. Because of hating her boss, she is glad for a two week vacation to Camp Kare-Free in the Catskills, which is billed as an outdoor retreat. There, Teddy is surprised that she falls for Chick Kirkland, and he for her, as their initial encounters were antagonistic. Chick is a recent law school graduate working at the camp, as he can't find work as a lawyer. A Teddy-Chick happy ending is threatened by their perception of what a relationship between them with their respective current situations would be like, and others at the camp who may pick up the romantic pieces in the wrong way in the aftermath.
