Delta House was an attempt by ABC to cash in on the enormous popularity of the movie Animal House. They even acquired some of the production team and a few of the original cast members. But none of that mattered,folks. Animal House was a raunchy, R-rated movie. Delta House couldn't compete with that, network standards being what they were at the time. ABC canceled DH after a few months. If this show is remembered at all, it will be because it afforded most people their first glimpse of Michelle Pfeiffer. She played The Bombshell.
