The year 2016 marks the 39th anniversary of the premiere of “The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries” television series. The show featured Parker Stevenson and Shaun Cassidy as Frank and Joe Hardy with alternating episodes starring Pamela Sue Martin ( and later Janet Louise Johnson) as Nancy Drew. The show was an instant hit and its popularity was boosted by the fact that countless readers of more than one generation had grown up loving the books about the young sleuths. Shaun Cassidy’s musical success also drew viewers to the show. Stop by your local library and try a few of the books again. It will be just like meeting an old friend after a long separation….along with assorted crimes and spooky settings!
