They also appeared on the New Gidget Show as themselves in the 80's . I think it was called that .

HAPPY DAYS

"Baby Talk"  . . . "Casanova Cunningham" . . . 1978

"Surf City" (instrumental) . . . "No Tell Motel" . . . 1980

"Surf City" . . . "The Sixth Sense" . . . 1981

"Surf City" . . . "Hello, Mrs. Arcola" . . . 1981

According to online episode guides. Not sure about the individual listings, but I do remember hearing both songs in the series.

Surf City also played on Happy Days. I remember when they walked in AL's place, the jute box was playing "I bought a 34 wagon...
It wasn't Jan & Dean. Just some singer.

Right . . . all four episodes listed above, by name, are from "Happy Days." I seem to remember that the original version of "Surf City" was used at least once. And "Baby Talk" was the original.

The Beechnut show? One of Dick Clark's gigs. Great photo of the boys here - any idea what song they're doing?
