I know this isn't anything official and I don't know how reliable it is, but last night, I was looking at the Laverne and Shirley profile on the website www.wikipedia.org and it said Season 3 of 'Laverne and Shirley' is to be released on Sept. 18, 2007. I was curious about 'Happy Days' and 'Mork and Mindy,' so I looked at their profiles, and they also said their third seasons were to be released on that day. Again, I know this isn't anything official, but I found it interesting.

That would be fantastic! That would be less than 6 months though which seems unlikely. Plus it lists the date as September 17th and that's a Monday. Usually, new releases come out on Tuesday. But I would love to see it happen. Season 3 is probably my favorite season. It has The Dentist and The Slow Child, 2 of my favorite episodes.

Well, looks like CBS DVD has struck again.

Happy Days Season 2 does NOT have "Rock Around the Clock" theme, it is replaced by the "Happy Days" theme that starts in Season 3. Also, the back of the box says "Music has been changed for this home entertainment version."

The Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy sets are also altered. For them the back of the box says: "Some music has been changed for this home entertainment version."

We at SitcomsOnline will try to investigate what is missing in our reviews of each.

I would be very interested in knowing how that would look on the DVD. to see the RATC opening footage with the other theme. I'm so used to seeing the Record Player Opening with the Season 3 and After theme.

Please tell me they didn't do the same for Laverne & Shirley's opening. That would be so dumb. Hopefully, they are minor changes that we may not even recognize. For announcing this release so far away from the release date, I would have thought they would have cleared all music rights. Didn't someone post that they had a conversation with someone at Paramount who confirmed that all music rights had been secured? I'm eager for Pav's review.

After looking forward to the release of L&S's second season on DVD for so long, I am very disappointed in it. Their first season was released as the "complete first season." The key word there is "complete." And that's what every other TV show on the planet is being released as -- complete. Otherwise, why bother? If I go to the trouble and expense of purchasing a favorite TV show on DVD, I expect it to be complete and unedited from its original condition. So now Paramount and CBS are expecting L&S's fans (as well as Happy Days' fans and Mork and Mindy's fans) to accept a stripped down version with strange, unrecognizable music in the background. I mean, it might as well have been taped off of TV Land or something! So I'm more than disappointed, I'm furious! This is an outrage!

Take the episode "The Bridal Shower" for example. The original (which can be seen in syndication) has Carmine singing at the Pizza Bowl at the beginning but the episode that's in the new second season DVD set skips over that scene completely and begins with what happens immediately after Carmine is finished singing. That is editing that I do not wish to see in the L&S episodes that I have longed to see unedited for so long! Plus, later on in that same episode when L&S attend the bridal shower at Rosie's apartment, the original music of Johnny Mathis and other recognizable '50's type music has been changed to uncognizable elevator type music that is very distracting. And it's distracting so much that it actually takes away from the scenes. I find myself listening to the music (trying to figure out what it is) instead of listening to the dialogue. And sometimes the music is even louder than the dialogue which is even more distracting! I've only watched a couple of episodes so far in the new second season set but what I've seen I don't like one bit. What I would like to do is write Paramount and/or CBS and tell them if they can't present L&S to the buying public in complete seasons, don't do it at all. Because, to me, the whole point of purchasing TV shows on DVD is seeing them complete and unedited as they were originally broadcast. What I'm afraid of now is that Paramount/CBS may have set a precedent for all other companies to release TV shows just as edited and chopped up as they want them to be and, we, the buying public, will just have to put up with it. Also, the new packaging for L&S's second season is very cheap looking plastic with the discs just thrown together in the same area. Their first season was in a much better looking slip case with each disc secured in its own containter. And that season was complete! So that first season was how each of L&S's seasons should have been presented to the buying public! Not this cheap, stripped down version that I'm not even interested in anymore! So attention Paramount/CBS: Either do it right or don't do it at all!

Cut scenes on a DVD is always unaccepable, sorry that you Wasted your money. If I was you I would just throw the sh*t in the trash. Especially since you mention that the episode cut out something TV Land didn't

Whoa, chill out for a sec! There are reasons why they did what they did. I wish to refer you to a thread in the Happy Days forum, since a lot of discussion has been going on and I have no desire to re-type any of it:

http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/...d.php?t=198956

After reading this, you may still not agree it was a good investment, and that's entirely your perogative, but you'll at least understand why Paramount did what they did. It wasn't to be lazy or mean. Their hands were more or less tied in this.

Read on friend, especially my responses since some of the other posts are just people complaining. The ones that weren't I quoted in my responses. That should tell all...
