Mrs. C. has already outlived Joanie by three years.

While that may be true, she recognized him and she is just some random old lady.

Happy Days created the spinoffs Laverne And Shirley (a hit), Mork and Mindy (a hit), and Joanie Loves Chachi (a hit for a time, right?). Has any other sitcom had as many successful spinoffs?

If you were a kid watching it on Nick at Night like I was and you found it to be these things you were WAY more woke than I was as a very young child or you are just making shiat up to appear more woke today. Hmmmm.... I wonder which is more likely.

Ron and Henry threw him a bone, and he farking killed it. Hilarious. Then he had to go be a dick, cause that's what deplorables do. Right wing "celebrities" have no concept that self deprecating behavior makes audiences like you more. To me, Justin Timberlake was that kid from NSync until he did Dick In A Box. I instantly said "Ok, he's farking cool."
Same thing goes for VanDerbeek, Jason Biggs, Ben & Matt in Jay & Silent Bob. Ryan Reynolds...etc. Right wingers only know how to punch down. *paging Conservative Humor*

I was in high school when it was on. It was supposed to be a adaptation of "American Graffiti ", but that only lasted about the first season. There was a ton of nostalgic fifties rock and roll stuff happening then, but as soon as "Happy Days" started having live studio audiences it went downhill fast. The actors all had '70's styled hair dos and flared jeans and white sneakers.
It always was pretty cringe worthy.

Agreed. Or at least just not be a dick. I've had some angry times and managed to not take it out on my pets and family. I knew deep down that what I was feeling might have been justified but that lashing out wouldn't get what I ultimately wanted. It's like these deplorables have no sense of tact, decorum, or personal responsibility.

It's okay to have an opinion, it's not okay to be an asshole about it.

Honestly, yes they are. You see differing celebrities targeting different demos, from YA (18-29) up to people already in a retirement home.

When you got money like the DNC and the big state parties have to throw around, you might as well.

While all of that may be true, it has nothing to do with the experience he claimed to have as a member of a younger generation and my experience as that same generation.

I guess a shorter way of saying it would be "OK Boomer."

I was in grade school and mom watched it. It was meh, to me. I do recall liking Laverne & Shirley though. Lenny and Squiggy cracked me up. Didn't put 2+2 that Lenny was in Spinal Tap and Earth Girls Are Easy until way later.

I also watched Laverne and Shirly on Nick at Night and it was way better than Happy Days. I agree that Lenny and Squiggy made that show (just like Larry, Daryll and his other brother Daryll did for Newhart"). It is amazing how much influence Penny Marshall and Ron Howard went on to have over the entertainment we absorbed in our lifetime.

You are correct. I would like to point out an exception to that rule that is a personal favorite of mine.

One of the best sitcoms of all time, in my opinion, was Cheers.

You don't understand why a campaign would hold a fundraiser?

Apart from the obvious  if someone donates any amount, even a dollar, they become much more committed
They will show up to vote, and urge others to do so. It binds them to the cause.

Oh, I completely agree. Niles, Daphneie and Fraiser's Dad made that show great. But to Kelsey Grammar's credit it wouldn't have worked without him being the pivot point.
