Does anyone remember this show?

I need help identifying a television show from the '80s about a boy and his hot ghost.

I have but a few wisps of memory about a television show from the 1980s and would love to identify it.

All I can remember is it was a sitcom, set mainly in a home, centering on a teenage guy and his relationship with an older, hot lady who is also a ghost.

I think she gave him advice.

Best answer: Jennifer Slept Here starring Ann Jillian as the ghost.

Jennifer Slept Here came into mind after reading your description.

Opening sequence for the show [YouTube].

Response by poster: Yep, that's it. Thanks.

Holy flashback-inducing Krishna of the Internet, the intro blew my mind.

OMFG. I haven't thought about this in years. Thanks for the nostalgia tailspin.

(Next I'll be scouring YouTube for "Double Trouble" and "Small Wonder.)

That music is even more sickly than the shows concept.

Occasionally the chorus of the Jennifer Slept Here theme song rises up from the depths of my memory as a relentless earworm. Damn you, Lownotes, your question has reinforced it, and doomed my Sunday morning.

I used to watch that show, but that theme music does not sound even slightly familiar.

"She lived here, she loved here, she wept here, she never really left here ... Jennifer slept here." Ugh.

I was going to suggest this site as a great place to watch old shows like this one, and probably "small wonder" and "double trouble," however, looks like I'm a day late.
