I can only think of One Day at a Time and Facts of Life as pre-1980 shows where all the main actors are still living. Others?

I Spy
The Monkees
The Partridge Family
Police Woman
The Six Million Dollar Man
Quincy, M.E.
The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries
Taxi (edit: incorrect)

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

Indeed.

Andy Kaufman was dead shortly after the series ended.

 Thanks. I forgot about Andy Kaufman. I don't know how that slipped my mind. Maybe  I thought his death was a practical joke he was (and still is) playing.

He was a regular during the first season, so Happy Days isn't one.

Quantum Leap

Working for Bellisario is good for your health.

How about the total opposite?   Hawaii Five-0,  I think everyone is about gone except for Dano.

The Girl with Something Extra (1973-74).  All regulars are still alive: Sally Field, John Davidson, Zorha Lampert and Jack Sheldon.  Not a classic, but it's old.

I had thought The Flying Nun qualified, but then I found out Alejandro Rey passed away.

Unless one of the kids met an untimely demise, then the entire cast of "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" should still be around.  Even the neighbor, Shirley Mitchell, is still with us.  There are supporting players such as Ned Glass who are long gone, but if I'm not mistaken, the entire cast of the opening credits should still be with us, unless we're including the dog.  (He *was* credited...)

The original season 1 cast of Knots Landing just barely makes the pre-1980 qualification by virtue of its December 27, 1979 premiere date. No deaths there.

Now let's flip this around: How many shows from the 1970s or later have the most deceased cast members?

Gimme A Break!
 has already lost: Nell Carter, Dolph Sweet, John Hoyt, Jane Dulo, Howard Morton, Pete Schrum, and Rosetta LeNoire. Also worth mentioning is Lynne Thigpen, although she only appeared in a handful of episodes as Nell's sister, but she died two months after Nell Carter and one month after Pete Schrum.

Half the cast of The Golden Girls is now gone, even if you include recurring characters: Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, and Herb Edelman.

Three's Company has lost John Ritter, Norman Fell, Audra Lindley, and Don Knotts.

From The Jeffersons, gone are Isabel Sanford, Roxie Roker, Franklin Cover, Mike Evans, Paul Benedict, and Zara Cully.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.
