Still no idea what happened to Chuck.

The shark has a reverse mortgage now, though.

Feeling frisky?

I only know the show thanks to Nick At Night but I remember it fondly.  I was only allowed to watch one show a day and Happy Days was my choice more often than not.

The show that taught us all a short, thirtysomething Jewish man who only dated high school girls and spent a LOT of time hanging out in a men's room talking to teenage boys could be America's most beloved badass.

Potsie can't get gay married but Richie can get married over the phone.  That series was total bullsh*t.

Now I'm having fond memories of Tuesday night on ABC in the late-70s; Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Three's Company, then Taxi. Why yes, I was raised by television.

That lead to the 80s, when any scrawny guy with girly hair could be considered tough if only he wore leather.

Leather makes all men tough, and all women sluts.

That puss was afraid of motorcycles.

Yet another piece of shiat, completely useless article. What are the odds that it was written by someone who has never, ever, watched the show?

seen Henry Winkler a few times on royal pains
he has not aged well
got him a turkey neck now

Great photo on that link. Someone might have wanted to use a photo where Marion Ross is actually looking at the camera.

This is winner.


It was never a very good show, but it's what was on.  I may not have understood the term "overbroad" then, but I knew it when I saw it.  Younger people may never understand the lack of entertainment choices people faced then.

That damned show seemed to go on forever.

Ron Howard seems like a nice enough guy, but the best thing he's ever done are those political commercials with him and Andy Griffith.

This Milwaukee boy loved that show.

A lot of the Milwaukee obviousness is still true--I'm drinking at work right now, we go out to a diner-type place all the time, and I get the see the Bronze Fonz anytime I want.

Wow, I'm sorry, but that is a terrible looking sculpture.  In my opinion.  Great name for it though.

I don't know, when I break out my chaps, it looks pretty gay. Of course they are hot pink, and bedazzled.

In the first season or so, he was pretty cool.
At least he lost the Harley and got the Triumph fairly quickly.

That show was one of my English tutor.

Seems to have paid off splendidly.

I just got stinkeye from my boss for trying to stifle my laughter after reading this.

The Bronz Fonz is awesome in all its kitschy glory

Marion Ross  (Ritchies's mom) was a hottie in her younger days.  She was one of the nurses in the movie Operation Petticoat.

Hanging out with Judy Winslow.

I watched this show all the time as a kid, and even drank a bit of the Kool-aid. Now, I can't figure out how the fark Fonzie was supposed to be cool. Even his leather jacket had cotton cuffs.

Apparently, I ate a lot of lead paint chips as a kid. Which explains an awful lot.

'Cause they said he was.  Repeatedly.  Roughly 23 times per episode.  I think that estimate's on the low side.

My old boss owns the actual hot rod from the show.  Built by Barris, flamed by Von Dutch.  (The side pipes are dummies)

Yes, York PA people, that's the guy that owns Guitars On George...

Sit on it!

OtherLittleGuy: Sit on it!



Huh, in retrospect when you consider "Sit on it!" refers to either "my face" or "my penis", that was kind of a racy catchphrase to be putting in preteens' mouths at the time.

Can someone explain the joke? Is my grammar off?
