Bronson Pinchot, Mark Linn-Baker, Perfect StrangersThe fact that today is the 25th anniversary of the premiere of 'Perfect Strangers'? It makes us want to do the Dance of Joy!

That, of course, is the memorable full-body celebration involving leg kicks, jumping up and down and shouting "Hey!" and ending with cousin Larry (Mark Linn-Baker) leaping into the arms of his Myposian cousin Balki (Bronson Pinchot), whose "Now we are so happy, we do the dance of joy!" exclamation always launched the dance.

The Dance of Joy was one of the best reasons for tuning into the silly, but sweet entry into ABC's sadly defunct TGIF lineup of Friday night sitcoms, in fact. 'Perfect Strangers' revolved around just that: two strangers, Chicagoan Larry and his distant cousin Balki, who became roomies when Balki left his Mediterranean country home and showed up on Larry's Windy City doorstep.

Don't be ridikulus: it's a Perfect Strangers montage!

Perfect StrangersRemember Perfect Strangers, the ABC Friday night comedy from the 80s? It's one of my guilty pleasures. Not great (not even half-great), but it's The Office compared to, say, Living With Fran. Someone has taken the trouble to do a montage of all the best bits from the show, and they've put it on YouTube (of course). And it's all done to the Can-Can!

Actually, it's Hooked On Can-Can. Like Hooked On Classics. Only Can-Cannier.
