When Suzanne Somers left the series in its fifth season, the original opening filmed on the Venice boardwalk was scrapped and a fresh intro was shot at the L.A. Zoo (before its ’90s face-lift). The new opener laid the same funky theme song over scenes of Jack Tripper falling into the monkey pit and Mr. Furley snarling at the lions. Each time I visit, I bend my knee before the flamingos, just as Jack’s new roommate, Terri, did.
