I can't say I recall any of those other shows.

I just remember being 4 or 5 and watching Sonny & Cher and Donnie & Marie.

Sonny and Cher was a bit darker, and harder to get into. Of course, at the time, I had no idea they were going through a divorce, I just picked up on the negative vibe.

Donnie & Marie was more bubble gum, easier for a 5 year old to digest.

I prefer the Type O Negative version:

For the longest time I thought "stuck in the Middle With You" was a Dylan tune.
Until one day it was used in a commercial to sell cookies, and I thought, "Wait a sec, Dylan wouldn't sell a song to sell cookie.."

No. I wouldn't know a Barry Manilow song if it bit me.
