YMMV / Pink Lady and Jeff

Go To

  • Narm: Hearing Pink Lady singing "MacArthur's [sic] park is glowing in the dark" produces more giggles than it should.
  • Older Than They Think:
    • The show wasn't the first time Pink Lady had a show about them, let alone a variety one. In Japan, they were big enough to have their own anime series (though curiously they didn't voice themselves or sing the theme songs).
    • It also wasn't the first time Mie and Kei had a go at cracking the U.S. market. As early as 1978, they were releasing songs in English and playing Las Vegas in a bid for a U.S. record deal. The following year they released a self-titled album featuring the disco single "Kiss in the Dark," which managed to crack Billboard magazine's Top 40 and also chart in Canada (and went all the way to #1 in Hawaii). This proved to be inopportune, as disco music was entering its death throes and would be more or less a twitching corpse at the time PL&J aired.

  • Retroactive Recognition: Jeff Altman later went on to be the in-house comedian on Solid Gold. In addition, Jim Varney was an ensemble player on PL&J before hitting it big as Ernest P. Worrell later in the decade.
  • Values Dissonance: The Agony Booth had a field day with this one. For instance, in the premiere episode, Jeff says that he thinks Mie is attracted to his "sexy round eyes".


How well does it match the trope?
