Laverne & Shirley in the Army is a 30-minute Saturday morning animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera in association with Paramount Television and based on the sitcom Laverne & Shirley with the title characters voiced by Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams. The show aired for one season of 13 episodes on ABC from October 10, 1981 to September 18, 1982. (The words "In the Army" did not appear in the show's title cards.) The series was loosely based on the 1979 two-part episode "You're in the Army, Now," in which Laverne and Shirley enlisted in the Army.


The series, set at Camp Fillmore, follows the comedic antics of roommates Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney as privates with the U.S. Army. They wind up getting involved in clandestine escapades with their immediate superior, a pig named Sgt. Squealy, always threatening to report them to his superior, Sgt. Turnbuckle.
