Default THE DVD

Hi pat i saw both pictures of the show that you posted up, is very cool. I did not no that the picture clip that you posted up was never before seen on the syndicated version or the original ABC broadcast. The episode in which Ralph is looking inside of his car, what episode was that unseen footage seen in? And if you do have the first complete season series, what other unseen footages which is not shown on the syndication version? I would love to see another clip posted up, that is if you can later

Talking deleted scenes

Puppylove,
I have NEVER seen that scene before. Of course, I was a lot younger than I am now when that first aired. There are not too many deleted scenes that I have not seen before on the box set. I was hoping for more behind the scenes and interviews, but I am not complaining...

Happy Days 4ever!!!!!

I'm heading back home for Christmas, but I will watch my box set again when I get back and try to get back with you about more deleted scenes.
Thanks,
Pat

showing a scene where richie and postie are playing baseball on the field and tossing the baseball to each other? And who so ever posted a clip of the picture where ralph malph is looking underneath his car is cool, now i have never seen that in the syndication versions especailly the reruns that tv land is running.
When i run out and buy the dvd, i pray and hoped that paramount pictures has edited back the original lost footages that has been cut from the syndicated version, i hate when that happpens, i heard that when happy days ran many years ago, it was a 30 minute show which ran 25 minutes long, and now it is only 22 minutes. I hate that especially the way tv shows are shown now. Ihope season 2 comes out soon too. Let me asked you this one question, i noticed that whenever a classic show like happy days, which has been shown on its original telecast goes into syndication, they cut huges chunks of footages, but when a show comes on to the dvd, how do the company who owns the rights to the series, go back and edited back in the original scenes as well as the original music which has been replaced with generic music or whatever that is? Once again thanks again puppy love


Puppylove,
Sorry, that scene you are looking for was gone just for the intro to Happy Days. It was not in the first ep. except for the music intro. The producers did this for several shots like when Al slips and showers Richie with French Fries while the guys are in the booth - also made for the intro. There are many other small takes they use in the intros that are actually part of the show though.
Hope that helps,
~ Pat

Default Deleted Scenes

I've been asked several times about the intro to Happy Days and if the scenes from the intros were simply scenes that were cut from the shows through the years. Many of you have a good idea that most of these scenes were not part of the show but just made for an intro to the show. My next few posts will help clear this up. Let's take a look at a few shots from this first episode and the into scenes that were never part of the show (at least, if they were, they were not added back to the DVDs)

This first shot is the shot where Richie is combing his hair in the bathroom mirror at Arnold's (Arthor's in episode One). The shot moved back to Potsy combing his hair behind him and a guy combing his crew cut behind him.

Second Shot is when the driver puts the top up to his convertable and catches his date's fake pony tail in the process.

Third shot, we find Richie and Potsy double dating at the movie theater. When their hands touch, they both pull their hands back

Fourth shot, Richie and Potsy wave to the waitress and she accidentally dumps the food of tray on the cop.

Fifth scene, Ralph falls out of the car when he goes to kiss his date. ((Wait a minute - take a closed look at the girl!!! Isn't that the girl from a later episode whom Richie has as a study partner and writes "I (heart) (sheep)" on the sidewalk???))

More on this topic in my next post...

Default Intro Or Not??? Richie and Potsy playing baseball

Ah, the baseball scene has been brought up to me many times.

Remember in some Happy Days intro where Richie catches a grounder and tosses it to Potsy and Potsy throws it in?
I found this scene in the 1st Ep "All the Way".
It is after Richie's date and just before everyone asking him if "he did".
If this is not the footage used in later intros, then it must have inspired the filming for the intro clip.
You be the judge.

Personally, I don't think this is the scene, because I believe that Richie lobs the ball to Potsy when they are in the same frame. I could be wrong.

Angry 2nd - 11th seasons

It would be great if they would at least give a timetable. I mean "Friends" went from season 1 to season 9 in a year and a half to 2 years. Just tell us when to expect to get our fix.

True, but the difference is that Friends was a top-rated network show when they began pumping out the DVDs. HD is an old show that appeals to an older audience and that's the audience the entertainment industry has always and will always go after.

We'll get Season Two eventually...provided season one has the right sales figures.

Default DVD 2nd Season????

Happy Days - Happy Days Again? Maybe!
Posted by David Lambert
2/24/2005


Six months ago saw the release of Happy Days - The Complete 1st Season on DVD, and fans loved it. So much that six months feels like a loooong time in the TV-on-DVD business to them, because we routinely get questions about the second season of it (and Laverne & Shirley as well). Nothing's been said by the folks at Paramount, though...until now!

Yesterday's edition of The Wall Street Journal (2/23/05, Section B) had a story by Merissa Marr and Joe Flint entitled "DVDs Are Finally Paramount". The article explains that previous management figures had a strategy of bringing titles - film and TV based - to DVD in a slow and steady fashion, and that new management in place now has a different plan of increasing the studio's revenue by way of cutting loose on the library.

Much of this has been reported already, at the time that the executives did their shuffle in recent months, and it wasn't exactly news we could use here at TVShowsOnDVD because no actual titles were brought up. But the Wall Street Journal story is naming names!

Among those names are "The Cunninghams" and "The Fonz". Mentioned in the story are a number of shows that Paramount intends to release in the near future, in order to drive their profits and therefore the stock value at parent Viacom. Happy Days is mentioned as being among the titles they are keeping in mind.

Howeve, the article continues with a lot more information. Here are some selected quotes from the story (we encourage you to pick up a copy of the paper, or purchase it through the WSJ online site, and read the article in its entirety):

Paramount estimates that...95% of its TV library (has) yet to be released on DVD. The studio is expected to deliver 25%-30% growth in movie and TV DVD sales this year, with margins reaching as high as 50%.

...growth in sales of TV DVDs are expected to outperform other DVDs...

...The biggest boost ahead is expected to come from TV DVDs. Viacom already has a thriving kids DVD business, thanks to Nickelodeon. While Paramount has released 35 TV DVDs in 2002, that will jump to 220 this year. As a general rule, TV DVDs are more profitable to a studio. However, the expense of renegotiating the actors and producers, and clearing the music rights, can sometimes cut into profits. On the first season of "Happy Days," for instance, it cost almost $1 million just to get the music clearance.

The last time we spoke with the studio about Happy Days, the clear indication was that it was the various licensing costs - music and otherwise - that was at issue on this release, and perhaps others like Laverne & Shirley. It sounds like they are working the numbers there at Paramount, and getting these releases worked out. The Wall Street Journal story doesn't say anything further about Happy Days other than what we've already mentioned, but stay tuned and we'll keep you updated if we hear anything further.

Man this is INCREDIBLE NEWS!

if they plan on going from 35 dvd's to 220, and surely HD has got to be one of the better selling ones so far, then that even bodes well for a Season THREE release possibility this year
