    Good thread. Not in any particular order...

    Happy Days - could have great music, nostalgia, Henry Winkler custom callouts,

    Seinfeld - lots of great quotes and characters, classic episodes, could have a jailbreak wizard mode

    Friends - Jennifer Aniston backglass

    Quoted from MikeS:

    There's a ton of good animated sitcoms that would work well.... Beavis & Buthead, King of the Hill, Bob's Burgers, another South Park, etc.

    A Beavis and Butthead pin would be great.

    #53 2 years ago
    Quoted from mrossman5:

    I feel Seinfeld could have a ton of hidden jokes from the show. There are just so many of them!

    There would have to be a marine biologist mode and a whale toy.

    Quoted from Eskaybee:

    Bosom Buddies

    With the RIGHT music. They ruined the DVDs and streaming by taking out the "My Life" credits song at the beginning and replacing it with a song that's terrible.

    As well as having Art Vandelay somewhere on the PF!

    #56 2 years ago

    The Premium would probably include an astronaut pen that can write upside down.

    As for music...I'd suggest Heartbreaker by Steinbrenner.

    #57 2 years ago

    Seinfeld would be pretty awesome. So would The Office

    PessimisticFreeBorer-size_restricted.gif

    #58 2 years ago

    All in the Family or Three's Company...

    #59 2 years ago
    Quoted from Eskaybee:

    Boosum Buddies or Greatest American Hero

    I hear they are re-booting G.A.H. with a female (Hannah Simone from "New Girl") lead so who knows??

    #61 2 years ago

    Seinfeld is crushing it. Maybe a good WhizBang theme?

    #62 2 years ago

    ...not quite a "sitcom" - but it was pretty funny in a cheesy way.

    #63 2 years ago
    Quoted from Grayman_EM:

    Archie Bunker you meatheads. A breaking series that finally allowed you to hear a toilet flush. shocking!

    Definately have some fun with this one!!!!

    #64 2 years ago

    From the list. . . Seinfeld. "I don't want to be a Pirate!"

    My offering would be for the Dukes of Hazzard -- if that is not too controversial in this day and age.

    I'm not sure if people here know the distinction between "sitcom" and "not sitcom."

    Quoted from o-din:

    I Dream of Jeanie

    No. Major Nelson had no sense of imagination at all.

    LTG : )

    #68 2 years ago

    A Roseanne pin to accompany her glorious comeback.

    #69 2 years ago

    Seinfeld has SO much material to draw on, it would make a great pin. Plus everyone at least knows it, if not loves it. Same is true of Honeymooners, but not on your poll.

    #70 2 years ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    No. Major Nelson had no sense of imagination at all.
    LTG : )

    That's why he kept Major Healy around.

    The guys on Hogan's Heroes had plenty of imagination.

    #71 2 years ago

    Westworld could be pretty fun with a throw back western feel.

    #72 2 years ago

    Id probably also want a machine featuring these guys if it was made:

    I doubt even they would have said "Hey Jeannie, make your tongue ten feet long and.............................................................."

    Well, technically there was a (short) Westworld TV spinoff, so...

    #77 2 years ago

    The Love Boat!

    #78 2 years ago
    Quoted from Ericc123:

    A Pinball machine about nothing...not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Stern could easily make it. Just reskin star wars.

    My vote would be Cheers or I Love Lucy.

    #79 2 years ago

    Munsters is my top choice followed by an updated South Park pin.
    Get Smart could be another fun theme.

    #81 2 years ago

    Has anybody mentioned MASH? Helicopter toy!

    #82 2 years ago
    Quoted from vireland:

    Well, technically there was a (short) Westworld TV spinoff, so...

    I was speaking more towards the current HBO series.

    #83 2 years ago

    ALF. . . . Ha! I kill me.

    Hide your cats from this one.

    Well then - Not a classic (yet). Not a sitcom. Wrong thread.

    #85 2 years ago

    The Muppets. A world wide phenomenon. A money maker for sure. Personally, I'd love an A Team pinball game, so much to work with.

    #86 2 years ago

    What's Happening

    #87 2 years ago

    Seinfield. So much material. Cheers would be a good candidate but the sound would be challenging. I vote Jonny Quest.

    #88 2 years ago

    Either one of these would work for me.

    Season 1 of Mork and Mindy still holds up really well. Watched it a few years ago with my kids.

    #90 2 years ago

    All in the Family
    Munsters

    #91 2 years ago

    Seinfeld. Would love to see a MoMD multi-ball. The object of the MoMD multi-ball would be to deny yourself the urge to make a shot by flipper trapping all the balls as long as possible. The longer you hold, the more points you win.

    Quoted from vireland:

    My bad. I don’t recognize sitcoms outside of Seinfeld so I’ve already moved on to other tv

    #93 2 years ago

    Still watch Seinfeld regularly. Love that show. Best sitcom ever. But a pin would only work if they can use all audio and video.

    2nd best would be the A-team series.

    #94 2 years ago

    The Munsters, most of those 70s-90s sit coms didn't age well, Cheers is pretty horrible if you watch it now, it's basically about a guy sexually harassing his female employees trying to get them to give in to sex.

    I think there may be a Pinside joke in there someplace.

    #96 2 years ago

    That would be one heck of a game.

    Well maybe not.

    What was the question again?

    #97 2 years ago

    As long as we are throwing out non-sitcoms, a SNL themed pin would be my choice.

    #99 2 years ago

    No one's mentioned the obvious yet.

    That’s my vote or Sanford and Son or Jefferson’s
