"Rock Around the Clock" and "Mona Lisa" were on the Hit Parade...Uncle Miltie was a household word...people held each other while dancing...the D.A. was a hairstyle...and everybody liked Ike. Those were the days of the 1950's...filled with innocence and the promise of even better days to come. (season 1)
This show had more catch phrases than any other sitcom in the history of television. The only other TV show with more catch phrases in the whole history of television is Saturday Night Live, and that is a variety show or a skit show, not a sitcom. The following are examples of Happy Days' catch phrases. Fonzie: Ayyyyyy! That is Cool! That is un-Cool! Coolimundo! and Whoa! Ritchie: I Found My Thrill! Yowza! Yowza! Yowza! Hey Bucko! and Huh-huh-huh. Ralph: I still got it! Chaachi: Wha-Wha-Wha! and Hey Blue Eyes! Big Al: Yep-Yep-Yep-Yep-Yep! Also "Sit on it!" was a catch phrase for everyone in the cast. Also crossover characters Mork from Ork: Nanoo-nanoo! And Zazbot! And Carmine Ragusa: They say my life was rags to riches. See more »

Two versions of the episode that introduced Robin Williams as Mork from Ork were broadcast. Initally, the episode ended with Ritchie waking up from a dream and seeing Robin Williams as an earthling. When the episode was rerun, this was replaced by a scene tying the episode into the new "Mork and Mindy" (1978) TV series. Most syndicated prints do not have the Mork and Mindy ending. See more »
Happy Days first three seasons rank among the best television made.Very funny,entertaining ,well acted.The show was perfectly cast.Authentic haircuts and fashions,cars etc from the late 1950s when the show took place.A lot of attention always goes to Ron Howard and Henry Wikler,but Donny Most as Ralph was equally good and definitely the funniest character.However when they introduced Scott Baio to the show,around season four it started to slowly decline in quality.Scott Baio was only one reason for the lower quality.A few other reasons,the story lines were not as good or funny.Once the main characters reached college for some reason the show lost some of its spark.A few seasons later Donny Most and Ron Howard left the show,that also contributed to the poorer quality of later episodes.It got to the point where the last 3 or 4 seasons were just ordinary at best but often boring and stupid.The characters even dressed in 1980s fashions and hairstyles when the later seasons took place in the early 1960s.So stick to the early seasons for great entertainment.
