Thanks. That puts stuff like Chachi's hair and some of the wardrobes even more out of sync. Around these parts, 1965 was still pretty much the 50's, style wise.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Happy Days and its sister show, Laverne & Shirley quickly lost their credibility as authentic '50s period piece fare because Garry Marshall at the end of the day, just wasn't capable of character-integrity (we already got a hint of that when Happy Days went from a single-camera show in the vein of American Graffiti or Summer of '42 to a multi-camera, studio audience sitcom) nor does he have the discipline to do period piece series. Rightly or wrongly, Garry Marshall's forte was broad, loud, and simple comedy that could appeal to little kids.
