Default What is Happy Days Again?

I've heard it was some kind of syndication title the show was given at one point but I don't quite understand what it was for. If you download the Season 1 opening from the Sitcoms Online Happy Days site, that opening says Happy Days Again. I also found seasons 5 and 9 on YouTube with the Happy Days Again title. Seems strange Season 5 came from an Italian channel, but Season 9 is actually from WGN. I don't know why they show it that way. Here are the links:
Season 5:

Season 9:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pXlKEc8ybs

Please help me understand what this is used for.

I never understood it either.
But, someone thought viewers would get confused seeing episodes of Happy Days on your local station while original episodes were still airing on ABC.

I was a kid when they did this, and never once did I get confused. Some network person thought viewers were idiots.

They did the same thing with Laverne And Shirley - renaming it Laverne ANd Shirley and Company, and CHIPS (CHIPS Patrol)

Reminds of the time that the minor league team Greensboro Hornets changed their name to the Bats to avoid confusion with the Charlotte Hornets basketball team. This was done because someone thought that people would be too stupid to know one from the other.

Yet, M*A*S*H and All In The Family also debuted in syndication alongside HD in the fall of 1979, and yet they retained their original titles.

Cool

Other shows in TV history have been renamed for syndication. For example The Bob Cummings Show was renamed Love That Bob for syndicated airings and Bonanza was renamed Ponderosa for syndication.

Please help me understand what this is used for.

The networks used to air reruns of their hit shows in the mid mornings - 10 AM, I think, so in order to not create confusion, they would re-title the shows.

I remember watching Sanford and Son in the mornings, but I'm not sure if they changed the title or not.

Happy Days Again was on at 11:30 AM.

I Love Lucy used several different names when episodes were re-run:

The Sunday Lucy Show
The Lucy Show (before the 1962 series)
Lucy in Connecticut
The Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz Show
