'Perfect Strangers' Turns 25! Where Is the Cast Now?

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.

This Perfect Strangers fan is standing tall on the wings of his dream

I've always wanted to redo the opening of a TV show, though I can never really make up my mind which one it would be. Laverne and Shirley? Or how about T.J. Hooker? I think I could do Adrian Zmed's roll on the car hood.

This Pop Candy reader and his friend did the opening of Perfect Strangers, filming it in their city of Seattle instead of Chicago. The original is after the jump.

Weekend Time Sink - Vintage rap from Balki - VIDEO

Bronson Pinchot and Mark Linn-Baker of Perfect StrangersAhhh, the weekend. A glorious time when the prospect of burning some daylight watching sit-com stars from the 80s rap seems perfectly reasonable. Especially if it's so frickin' cold it's snowing outside. Seriously, why am I getting snowed on in April?

Anyway, one of my friends sent along a link to a post by Benner on a blog called Touch. It features videos of a bunch of old commercials that use rap to try and sell you on one thing or another. You have the classic: D.J. Fred and M.C. Barney for Fruity Pebbles, the strange: Jennifer Love Hewitt in a commercial for bread, and the cringe-worthy: Larry Bird raps for Converse. Finally, there's the awesome: a promo for ABC Wednesday featuring the casts of Perfect Strangers and Head Of The Class. That one is embedded after the jump. Follow the read link for Benner's post and the rest of the videos.

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.
