hey happy days fan, finally i got my happy days dvd season 3 yesterday, i was looking at all of the episodes, and they look great and the music saved the show. I am so happy that cbs/paramount address these issues. I was looking at fonzie new friend and they cut a scene at the very end where fonzie was doing the limbo. I saw that in a date with fonzie they cut out more scenes which was mentioned. And the motorcycle scenes which was missing some footages, but any way the whole dvd was ok. But as i have said when cbs/paramount get to the rest of the seasons like fonzie loves pinky the three part episodes, fonzie goes to hollywood and other episodes that has three part they really must address the editing features and all of the original missing footages which i am sure they will, as a matter of face i just finish my letter to them requesting that they address these issues. I am glad that they finally address the music issues which we are all looking for the same results in season 4 but they have to work on improving the footages which is a must, i am dying too see the love scenes from fonzie loves pinky. I was watching on the dvd the episode they call it potsie love and by watching the episode on tv land, i do not think that they showed the scenes where joannie was dreaming about the wedding or the scenes where she was getting some advice from fonzie. I was also watching the episode where fonzie had to stop the fight between the falcons and the dragons, and i saw a scenes which i do not think was shown in syndication where fonzie was lefting weights with richie trying to get him to go down and stop the rumble.
Getting back to the episode they call it potsie love there was a closing scenes which could have been shown in syndication where marion was talking with joanne about life and heart being broken. But the episode of Arnold wedding was a classics original scenes to see which i did not see in syndication where fonzie was dancing with that japanse girl. Again the dvd was hott but cbs/paramount pleas address the editing issues and more songs of the band singing.

Are you talking about you don't remember seeing those scenes on TVland or on the DVD? - because they've been restored.

I'm still holding out hope that they can go back to fix Season 2 (where they have the most music problems - and maybe they can clean the picture some more).

The scenes where marion was talking with joannie i do not believe i saw that on the tv land version, and i did not see the scenes at arnold wedding on the dvd but not in syndication where fonzie was dancing with that japanse girl. Again CBS/Paramount has to address the editing footages before they ge to season 4 and others. Hey BILLYK since you got your dvd from amazon.com, maybe if you want you could post a comment about seeing cbs/paramount addressing the editing issues, i no that theh should not have any trouble clearing any of the music now for the rest of the seasons.

What makes you think that? Just because the music is present for season three doesn't mean it will be smooth sailing from here on out.

there will be definitely still be music issues in the future season's releases - in the season 6 episode "Stolen Melodies" they have a LONG scene where Joainie and Marion are doing "the Twist", they start with the dancing and continue as Howard comes home, then Richie and Leather come in with the band's new demo recording.

Chubby Checker has consistently sued for millions for each and every use of his songs - he claims that even the dance is his, so it doesn't seem like there is any way to do any of that scene.

I am sure that there will be other scenes throughout the rest of the series that will cause some problems, but at least Paramount is TRYING to get some of the music in there and keep it mostly intact.

Each set seems to have plus and minus. I'm resigned to the fact that
for whatevers reasons we probably won't see anything as close to perfect as the season 1 set again. I have to say though that the video quality surpasses what was being presented on TV land. I've kept my tapes (witht he exception of Season 1, no need for it anymore since the season 1 DVd set is so complete) and the DVD sets are better in video quality even if they aren't given the "Full Treatment" that some more contempory show shave.
I think it's easy to forget there was a point a few years ago where it looked like Happy Days DVD sets would never see the light of day. Then when they did come out, there were issues. Lot of of money for music in season 1 but sales weren't as expected. After a huge delay Season 2 comes out with mostly edited out music and an uproar ensues. Despite all this Season 3 (with many classic episodes) makes it way to us and the music has mostly returned. If future sets are the quality of Season 3 (music intact) I'l be happy. Make no mistake I'd love to see each and every episode uncut with all music as originally aired. But in lieu of that more DVD's liek Season 3 are OK with me.
Imagine if tomorrow you found out Season 3 didn't sell what they wanted and a decent sales/money spent for original music ratio could not be reached. That seasons four and beyond would not be coming out. The samll omissions suddenly wouldn't wouldn't seem so important. I do believe we'll see at least seasons 4 & 5 though.

Agreed on all points. At least we're getting SOMETHING! They could say, "hey it's not worth it because we can't get the music rights/complete episodes".

BTW, if they can make it the same quality wise (small edits and all) like Season 3 - I'm up for it.

I think the music (IMO) matter most during Seasons 1 & 2. I'm sure most will disagree with me (ex. the band singing "real" 50s songs, the jukebox hitting by Fonzie, etc.).

Thank You. Finally somebody is saying that.

Not everything is/was perfect with the Releases. But I am not complaining. I am happy and thankful that there are DVDs now. And I really really really really hope, that the other Seasons will be released too...

Yeah, but CBS/Paramount addressing the editing footages before going to season 4 and beyond seems unlikely to happen. Sorry to say.

Amen. One thing I don't understand, though, is why they'd leave out some parts that weren't cut out in syndication before. That's what bothers me.

There was a scene in "football frolics" in which at the end Fonzie realizes that his date's name was Jennifer. I don't think I have seen that since the episode first aired.
