Laverne & Shirley : Time Jump in Season 6

Time Jump in Season 6

Does the 2 1/2 year time jump to 1965 start after the second episode of season 6, when the girls move to California or before that episode? Originally the first 2 episodes of that season had the Milwaukee opening, though in repeats the second episode has the Hollywood opening.

Sqiggy makes a comment about leaving Shotz "several years ago" in a later episode, but not sure of that was a throwaway line.

From the Trivia section of episode :
"Not Quite New York" Season 6, Epiosde One (Posted by me, sometime last year.)

When the show's 5th season ended,it was 1962. With this first show of Season 6,it's now 1964/1965 and nearly 2 and 1/2 years in the lives of the characters have been skipped over.


Happi : Mainly this was done to give the characters more maturity and so they could also do story lines that were more mature also. (By season 8, the 'maturity' was out the window.)





Go for it or just be a gopher!

I once read that they did this to skip over the JFK assassination. "Happy Days" didn't do this... but by now, both shows were pretty much into the 80's as far as clothes and hair styles.
