Perfect Strangers In Seattle?

Everybody remembers 'Perfect Strangers', right? The lovable Balki Bartokomous and his Cousin Larry Appleton living together in Chicago.... Well, Ian Hugh Fraser and Christopher Bange recreated the show's intro using Seattle, Washington as the backdrop.... We need more of these! I want to see the 'Full House' intro in Baltimore, Maryland! Or the 'Laverne and Shirley' intro in Albuquerque, New Mexico! Ooooooh, or the 'Moonlighting' intro in New York City! Ok, now all of you get an expression of shock on your face and say 'NEW YORK CITY!?!?!' Sorry.... I had to do it....

By the way, did you know that Louie Anderson was cast for the role of Larry Appleton in the original pilot episode? It's true! Look!


  1. "Don't be ridiculous!" as Balki always said!

  2. Louie Anderson would have been great!!!! Lol@ Lisa Marie..I so remember him saying that in pretty much every episode...

  3. My favorite episode is when Balki gave Cousin Larry the Mepos (sp?) cure and he slept for three days straight.

    Whatever happened to Baker? I know Balki was a real dick/perv on the Surreal Life.

  4. Mark Linn Baker went on to Broadway and to a show called Twins.... He actually married the daughter of the guy who wrote the Frog and Toad books, and adapted those books into a Broadway play called 'A Year With Frog and Toad'

    Wasn't Balki on the Surreal Life with Omarosa, Janice Dickinson and Jose Canseco? That was a good season!

  5. I'm still doing the dance of joy, but not the but-tock clenches. ;)

  6. @Kristy - The dance of joy was my favorite! Bronson Pinchot played the perfect Myposian!
