Yeah, FYE told me that they didn't even order it, but I finally got it at Best Buy for 34.99!
I was kind of hoping that Wal Mart would have them for 20 bucks like season 2.

Well, I'm glad you found it. Happy viewing.

I'm going to try Wal-Mart one last time this weekend and, maybe, FYE. Then, to deepdiscount.com I go.

I'm very happy to hear that there has been an improvement since the release of season 2. I haven't been able to get my copy yet, but I'm very excited now that I know the presentation is so much better!

Yes...the Season 3 DVD set is a vast improvement over Season 2 DVD set.

I just wish they can re-release the Season 2 DVD set and correct all those flaws -- ie. music replacement back to original >>> picture quality.

I found the picture quality of Season 3 very good IMO - the worst of the picture quality is The Anniversary Show (as mentioned in the review).

And then here and there where they used "old footage" in the spots where there were the edits in Syndication.

Yes, the edits do stink -- but I believe for those 2 episodes the main areas where the edits were were the "tag" scenes not being there. I distinctly remember there were tag scenes for both of those episodes

In the one where Laverne & Shirley make their debut -- the tag scene was something like Howard asking Richie what really happned that night while they were out of the house...

Then in "Fonzie's new Friend" -- the tag scene consisted of a little more of the "party" scene - or the Party just wrapping up.

Pretty much the major plot is fully explained during these episodes.


All in all I'd give the set an A- or a 9 ...

Much better than the 2nd season set though.

Season 3 is where we see the last of Chuck Cunningham, right?

Season-two's "Guess Who's Coming to Christmas" was the last we saw of Chuck Cunningham.

I ordered mine from Amazon.ca yesterday, after having no luck finding it in stores. I should be getting it sometime next week, along with season 3 of both Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy. Only 1 more season to go for Mork & Mindy.

There is another missing footage I'd like to point out. In the first scene of "The Motorcycle", the one where Fonzie's motorcycle was totaled, when Joanie came downstairs the first time (she came back downstairs again and said "Sit On It, Richie!"), Richie said something to her about being in school, and she said "What are you, the truant officer?" That part's been left out too. It just cut right to the part when Fonzie cheerfully walked into the Cunningham house before he found out about his bike being wrecked. I know it hasn't been shown on syndication for a long time, but I distinctly remember it from when Happy Days aired on my local TV station years ago.

Who thinks that the 2nd anniversary clip show should've been where it was originally broadcast?

It was originally broadcast the episode after "Dance Contest" and the episode before "Football Frolics" but on the dvd it is the final episode on the dvd under the title Special feature.

Default A Date with Fonzie

I watched A Date With Fonzie last night and I'm disapointed that the tag scene was missing.I wonder why CBS/Paramount deleted that scene from the episode? I know the tag scene was in The Nick at Night airings I wish CBS/Paramount could explain to us why they included edited episodes.Still I'm glad the music is intact and I think it's a very nice set despite there being edited episodes.I hope season 3 sells well as I would like to have all The Happy Days seasons on my DVD shelf.

I agree. They put it where they did just so they could claim it as a "special feature."
