Williams and Penny Marshall, who died in 2018 at age 75, were heavily involved in the quality of the show, even doing some rewrites. “We had a litmus test, which was whether the script made Penny and I laugh out loud. That’s what we were looking for…to make the studio audience laugh out loud, then we thought it would carry over to the audience at home,” Cindy once said in a interview, according to New York Post.

“So, if it made us laugh out loud at rehearsal, then we knew it was good to go. When it didn’t, we would rewrite it, or try and put things in that made it funny. Once we got the show on its feet and started moving around, we would add things, add lines, and ad lib. The whole cast would,” the actress added at the time. Filed Under: Actress Cindy Williams Dies
