The Golden Girls theme says it all, and so does the show’s newest book. The theme song, “Thank You for Being a Friend,” has millions of hits on YouTube. Fans admit to singing along when they revisit the show, including those over on Yahoo. The lyrics express a loving, grateful sentiment that many can relate to. Now, a new illustrated book provides a very similar message and is perfect for gifting to “a pal and a confidant.”
The Golden Girls won viewers over starting on September 14, 1985. It spanned 180 hours, each about thirty minutes long. Its runtime brought in critical acclaim as well as numerous awards, including three Primetime Emmy and Golden Globe Awards. Cynthia Fee’s cover of Andrew Gold’s “Thank You for Being a Friend” also won fans over. Friendship became a sort of running theme for the show, immortalized by the song. Now, the book continues that fun, heartwarming legacy.
