If you're like me, as soon as you hear "Golden Girls," you instantly sing "Thank you for being a friend..."
"The Golden Girls" began stealing our hears in 1985, when the show premiered. The show followed followed Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty as four mature women who share a home in Miami, Florida. In recent years, the show's popularity has grown, becoming a hit to a newer audience. It's a show that has withstood the test of time.
Now, fans will have a chance to see the girls once more. This time, in puppet form.
