Threes Company was not an original show. It was a spin off from the British TV show, that aired before America aired threes company.

12/24. A challenging quiz. I didn’t know that the selections I missed were spinoffs.

14/24 I was really surprised at some of the spin offs. I recognized most of the shows, but frequently didn't realize they were spin offs.

Some were taken from countries beyond America, thus not originals.

14 Heard of most of these but never watched them. And you are right Darlene Davidson. Alice was a spinoff of a movie.
