Default Happy Days on VHS?

Did Happy Days and its spinoffs Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy ever make it to VHS in the early-to-mid-1980s?

I haven't been able to find any "Happy Days" on VHS.


Columbia House released about 10 VHS's of "Laverne & Shirley" featuring select episodes. These were released in the late 90s.


Paramount released a few "Mork & Mindy" VHS's also in the late 90s.

Besides that, I wonder if episodes on VHS Tapes of Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley would be complete with music intact.

Going off-topic for a bit, this also makes me wonder why Paramount waited until the release of The Brady Bunch Movie in 1995 before they decided to release the original 1969-74 TV series of said show (that the movie was inspired by) on VHS.

They did release Star Trek (The Original Series) on VHS as far back as 1980, but not as the complete uncut series until 1985-86 when they started releasing VHS tapes in SLP (super long play) mode.

Default never saw happy days vhs tapes

back in the days of video tapes it was rare that tv shows made it to video cassette with the exception of columbia house and some public domain stuff like andy griffith show and older lone ranger episodes.even when you came across some of this stuff the quality was generally bad.slp or lp modes, regenerated films and really crappy audio tracks.
