Can You Guess This TV Theme? #39 - Answer

Congratulation to The Girl Next Door Grows Up from 'The Girl Next Door Grows Up' for correctly answering this weeks TV Theme!

I could spend a paragraph or two explaining 'My Two Dads'.... How an odd-couple pair of bachelors, Michael Taylor and Joey Harris played by Paul Reiser and Greg Evigan, are thrust into fatherhood after inheriting their teenage daughter Nicole, played by Stacy Keanan, after the death of her mother.... Fortunately, the intro accomplishes that for me....



It's actually the perfect idea for a sitcom. Two single men become co-parents to a teenage girl. It's genius!

Florence Stanley plays the cantankerous, but level-headed and wise, Judge Margaret Wilson. She brought the fathers and daughter together and owns the building where they all live....

Dick Butkus plays the tough teddy bear, Ed Klawicki, who ran the restaurant at the ground floor of the apartment building....

Nicole's main love interests in the show, Corey Kupkus and Zach Nichols, are played by a young Giovanni Ribisi (who for some reason was in the credits as Vonni Ribisi) and Chad Allen....

I've been watching episodes all day, and I've seen cameos from Scott Baio, Davy Jones, Andrew Koenig and Jennifer Love Hewitt (who like Giovanni Ribisi, her name was shortened in the credits to Love Hewitt)....

I'm sure you all know that Greg Evigan, who plays the wild artist father, provides the velvety smooth voice you hear in the theme song....

Here's a question for everybody out there.... Who had the bigger career, Paul Reiser or Greg Evigan? Sure, Paul Reiser is the creator and star of 'Mad About You'.... But Greg Evigan was the star of 'B.J. and The Bear'....

So Paul Reiser is a more current success, but he's never had a monkey for a co-star....

  1. That girl played Dana on Step by Step! I didn't realize it was the same actress... I didn't really watch My Two Dads, but still.

    BTW, REALLY? I don't even know who the other dude is, clearly Paul Reiser wins.
