TV Series
    (January 30, 1977-January 14, 1979)
    Aired on ABC
    Shaun Cassidy as Joe Hardy
    Parker Stevenson as Frank Hardy
    Pamela Sue Martin as Nancy Drew (1977-78)
    Martin replaced by Janet Louise Johnson (1978)
    Renamed 'The Hardy Boys Mysteries' in season three
    Premise: Adventures of teenaged amateur sleuths
    Nancy Drew went from having the same number of episodes as the Hardy Boys in season one, to having three solo episodes and some guest appearances with the Hardys in season two to disappearing completely in season three.
    The Hardys usually took a scientific approach to finding clues while Nancy Drew relied on her feminine intuition. (I smell gender stereotyping!)
    Joe was made an aspiring rock singer so Cassidy could perform his teen idol hits.
    It looks like a 70s time capsule.
    In a running gag, Frank would leave the room whenever Joe started singing. (And can you blame the guy?)
    The Hardys' wardrobe ran to circulation-threatening bellbottoms and skimpy athletic shorts, which, coupled with their tendency to end up soaking wet and/or shirtless, made them the male equivalent of era's 'jiggle' programs.
    The episode 'The Mystery of the Ghostwriters Cruise' featured a tidal wave threatening a cruise ship in homage to 'The Poseidon Adventure,' which also starred Pamela Sue Martin.
    Many episodes were shot on the backlot street set that later became Wisteria Lane in Desperate Housewives.
