Love American Style,
Truer than the Red, White and Blue.

That's me and you.

And on a star spangled night my love, (My love come to me).
You can rest you head on my shoulder.
Out by the dawn's early light, my love
I will defend your right to try.

Love American Style,
That's me and you.




STORYLINE

The Love American Style TV show was a anthology comedy series on ABC which would show several short stories about situations centering around love and emotional relationships.
How people dealt with these situations was always humorous but also at times touching. It was this balance of love always triumphs with the comedy inherent with those triumphs that kept the show fresh.
Guest stars made up the cast and ABC had a stable full of willing talent to choose from with the producers favoring some of them by casting them numerous times in different roles.
The show was never a huge success in the ratings and was never in the top 20. ABC realized the value of the short story format that could be easily edited into any length show and used for syndication. Since Oscar Meyer had signed on as the major sponsor (My boloney has a first name...) the series continued for five seasons.
