When the girls joined the Army in "We're In The Army Now", viewers were suddenly faced with a possible {{retool}}...but the producers got cold feet and tossed that idea in the bottom drawer. The Army episodes inspired a Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon (a la ''WesternAnimation/TheFonzAndTheHappyDaysGang'') called ''Laverne and Shirley in the Army'', which was voiced by the leads.
