Your chemistry section, a clear labor of love, is gorgeous. The combination of links featuring text, illustration and audio
is a model of how the Internet can best be used...
...Again, such a pleasure to be a part of an enterprise undertaken with integrity, enthusiasm, and smarts.

My compliments on the staggering effort in producing this wonderful site. "Moonlighting"
got me through graduate school, as it was the only program for which I would pause work on
Tuesday nights at 8:00. How great to be in league with other fans.

It is amazing to think that it will be 20 years this year since the Moonlighting phenomena began. I have been a fan since the beginning. The show gave me a greater appreciation for the tiny, subtle "bits" that go into an actor's performance and character, and how the setting, camera angles, costuming, makeup, lighting and color effect mood.
I am very impressed with and really enjoy your site; it's very comprehensive and interesting. I have enjoyed reading the commentaries and analyses, and all the photos and fun stuff, too...
...Best wishes to you and to the DVD Campaign. Keep up the good work, and I'll keep checking back to your site!

I just wanted to thank you and the editorial team for a wonderful, comprehensive website.... So much great stuff that it's hard to know where to start and finish.
As an original 'Moonlighting' fan, it's an absolute treasure trove.

All I want to say is....Thank you, thank you, thank you!
As far as I'm concerned, "Moonlighting" is the best thing to ever happen to television. We (my family) have DVDs of movies and television shows in our home, but they all belong to either my husband or my children. I have never been interested in buying any tapes or DVDs; once I have seen something, I have no desire to watch it again. But I could watch "Moonlighting" over and over and over. And I am constantly searching listings to find it on television again.
So, again, thank you and everyone else for all you've done to get this series on disk! I'm looking forward to getting every "Moonlighting" eposide created.

Your website is FANTASTIC!!!
Moonlighting premiered when I was a freshman in high school and it was the first "adult" show I was interested in. I was absolutely hooked. If only there'd been the Internet back then! I lived and breathed this show - even so far as to AUDIO tape Every Daughter's Father Is A Virgin so I could take a bit of Moonlighting with me on a family trip to Australia.
From time to time I've viewed the episodes I diligently taped on my VCR "back in the day," but now that my DVDs have just arrived in the mail... I'm SO excited. My Moonlighting fever has returned!
Thanks for your HARD work on your website - I can't believe I've just stumbled across it today and hadn't found it earlier. I'm looking forward to exploring it more fully ASAP!

I have admired your site for quite awhile and visit regularly. (Too bad we didn't have the internet during Moonlighting's heyday.) I wanted to drop a line and thank you for all your hard work on the DVD campaign.

I just have to drop a line to say how wonderful your website is. i'm
sure you've been told this time and again by fans, but it really is
one of the best put together and most comprehensive websites on the
Technically I'm a "new" moonlighting fan. I wasn't old enough to watch
back when it aired originally and have discovered it when they re-ran
it on Bravo a few years ago. I love reading about the ads and watching
the interview video clips and all the hoopla surrounding it that I
missed out on; and the essays, especially the chemistry one is
exceptional. I can spend hours playing with all the goodies on the
site and still find something new to enjoy the next time I visit...

I just wanted to say what a great job you have done on davidandmaddie.com. I was a star-struck, dreamy 10 year old girl when I first found what became my favorite show of all time. Even though it was on past my bedtime, my mom was nice enough to let me watch it on a black and white TV in my bedroom. I remember cutting out all those print ads from TV guide and taping them to my wall. I remember being at a girlfriend's house and screaming with her when D & M kissed for the first time in "Witness..."
...Fast forward to today, I am now thirty years young (and a life long Bruce fan). I recently had my first child, and while on maternity leave, I thought it would be fun to get the get the DVDs form Netflix and do it all over again, and finally see how it all ended. I am now about to start the last disk, and along the way I happily discovered your great site. It brought me right back to my old bedroom, and all the giddy passion and excitement I had for the show....I also realized that my second favorite show of all time, The X-Files, owes alot to Moonlighting and its understanding of great chemistry and writing. It truly was "lightning in a bottle".
Anyway, thanks for the labor of love, as I am grateful for the trip down memory lane!

About the Site
Thanks for stopping by DavidandMaddie.com I know that both Mr. Addison and Miss Hayes appreciate it, as do I their webmaster. Ok ok so you caught me; this isn't exactly "their" website. If truth be told this is just another "unofficial" fansite, but we hope to make it one of the most definitive web destinations for information about "Moonlighting" and about Mr. Addison and Miss Hayes.
I am Cindy Klauss, the webmaster, and I happen to be co-owner of a web site design firm in Panama City Beach, Florida which makes it easier for me as such to really do this thing up right. I began construction on this site in late December 2001; launched the initial site on February 28, 2002; and will be continuing to develop and add content as long as you keep coming and as long as I can click a mouse. Keep visiting us on a regular basis and watch us grow. My site co-editor for content is Diane Hopkins of Philadelphia, PA. Please visit the Site Dedication and Credits page to see all the other individuals who have contributed to this effort.
Why am I doing this?
I get asked that question from time to time, especially from friends and family members who see how much time and money this site requires. I have a difficult time justifying my efforts to those who aren't really fans. "Get a life!" is something I hear from time to time. "Ahhh, but this is MY life...and I enjoy the hell out of it," I reply.
There is another TV series that I have a fan site for that before my Moonlighting site came along demanded all my spare time too. It is for the 1994-1995 TV series Christy, based on the best selling American novel by Catherine Marshall, that starred Kellie Martin, Tyne Daly and LeVar Burton (to name a few of the most famous faces). In the pilot episode of that series there is scene where Tyne Daly's character offers this piece of great advice to the young, enthusiastic, but naive school teacher, Christy, played by Kellie Martin: "Hold on to joy" she tells her. Succintly put, that is exactly what DavidandMaddie.com is all about. One of the excuses I have is that I am attempting to return some of the joy that Moonlighting brought into my life back in the 1980's---and continues to bring to this day whenever I watch my tapes or converse with fellow fans. I also enjoy sharing the joy with others because I know what it is like to be a bigtime fan of a series/cast, and I believe I know the kind of things the fan wants to read, see or experience. Hopefully this site provides a place for other Moonlighting fans to go get their "fix" of these types of things.
Besides, I find so much on TV these days is really lacking in creativity, intelligence and originality that I currently watch less than 6 hours a week of programs on TV...and certain nights I just don't turn on the set at all. By paying homage to Moonlighting, one of the truly brilliant shows ever on and certainly one of the most innovative, this is my way of drawing attention to the type of programming I want to see. Mr. Willis and Ms. Shepherd on Moonlighting were indeed captured "lightning in a bottle" -- performances and personalities like theirs just do not come along on TV every day. In some way, I hope to draw attention to just how special they were in these roles and how wonderful the whole experience of watching Moonlighting was.
Is this an obsession you ask? I suppose to some it may seem so. I consider it more a venue of expression. LOL! Venue of expression--that sounds so hoity toity doesn't it? Ok, let me see if I can make my answer more agreeable...having the site and working on the site is a blast! Yep, a total blast. And besides, I am incredibly proud of it. :-) That's my explanation, plain and simple!

All of the photos found on this site come from one of three sources:
- Publicity photos distributed by ABC, Lifetime Channel, or Bravo TV for promotional purposes, many of them lent to me to scan by fans or procured myself through eBay.
- Articles or photos published in magazines, newspapers, and other printed media. Most of these date back to the late 1980's during the time "Moonlighting" was airing on ABC. The majority of these (just like the photos) have been lent to me to scan by fans or procured myself through eBay, and a few I have had since they were first published.
- Video captures using a Pinnacle Systems capture card and Adobe Premiere 6.0 video editing software. These captures of scenes to produce still shots were done from the DVD of the pilot by Anchor Bay and from episodes of "Moonlighting" taped on VHS at the time of the original airings on ABC. Please understand that the VHS tapes are over 13-15 years old and all were recorded on ancient equipment by today's standards. We truly apologize for the reduced clarity and color of some of the shots that come off these tapes, but then how would we have ever known back in 1980's that someday these tapes might end up being used for such a lofty and far-reaching project as this. I feel fortunate to at least have had the foresight to have recorded them all in the first place.
