Trivia / Alice (1976)

  • Dawson Casting: Averted. Philip McKeon played his character's age, and memorably grew over a foot between seasons; Tommy went from being at eye level to 5'3" Linda Lavin to towering over her at 6'2"!
  • The Other Darrin: Alfred Lutter, who'd played Tommy in the movie, reprised his role in the pilot episode before Philip McKeon took over.
  • Recycled: The Series: One of the odder cases, given the marked difference in tone from the parent film.
  • Linda Lavin, a William and Mary alumna, wore college shirts/sweatshirts as a running bit on the show. She wore a William and Mary shirt for the final episode.
