Without foam fabrication and its many applications, Sheldon Cooper would not have his highly prized couch cushion. It's almost impossible to think of funnier moments in television than those involving Sheldon and Penny's battle of the minds over a simple seat on the couch in "The Big Bang Theory". In all fairness to Sheldon Cooper, many of us have our favorite spot on the sofa and feel at odds when someone else takes our seat. |
Some sofas are more easily recognizable than others. The sofa that occupied Roseanne's home was not only well-worn, but also featured a granny square afghan. People may forget the different episodes of a sitcom, but they will remember the focal points of the home, including the sofa. Dan, Roseanne, and the kids always seem to be in the kitchen or the living room somewhere near that tattered old piece of furniture.
While Roseanne's sofa looked like something found on the street after midnight, the Huxtable's sofa was an elegant piece of furniture. One could easily envision the quality of foam fabrication that went into the making of the Huxtable's living room furnishings. Dr. and Mrs. Huxtable's family was a pleasant place to visit, once a week, and very different from the home of Roseanne.
It's possible that the sofa seen during the opening of the sitcom Soap was the largest piece of furniture ever used on a television set. Soap might not have been the longest-running situation comedy, but it was certainly a memorable television show. The show's sofa was a piece that could have graced Louis and Antoinette's French palace, but it was often home to some of the looniest characters to have ever been in a sitcom.
The Happy Days cast was often featured in the living room with Mrs. C occupying her end of the Cunningham's sofa. Throughout the 50s, foam fabrication was used sparingly on the arms and backs of couches, but the cushions were another story altogether. The Cunningham's couch seemed a step out of time with the period that the show was meant to represent, however, where else could Joanie and Chachi have fallen in love.
The sofa from That 70s Show seems more appropriate to the Happy Days era than it did the early years of the 70s. The cast of teens were often seen lazing about on the sofa as they discussed the day's events, the relationships of their peers, or their parents. It was a quite an ugly sofa with a low back, hard armrests, and a dingy brown covering, but it was a well-used prop.
The sitcom audience has little appreciation for the time and effort that goes into the making of a situation comedy. In our homes, we can truly identify the benefits of foam fabrication and the role it plays in our daily lives.
