Default ME-TV has bumpers for Happy Days like it's on ABC???

Today was my first time ever watching HD on ME-TV and when the show went to a commercial I saw the bumper with the voiceover of Marion saying..."Happy Days will be right back after these messages"

I never saw that in syndication before. Damm, ME-TV is really sticking to their motto......."Memorable Television. Great stuff

I don't even remember HD on local syndication because it was in the 80's here in philly. But that really surprised me.

Now, that's a throwback to the good old days.

I remember HD when it debuted in syndication: September, 1979 on CH 56 in Boston.

Of course, it was redubbed Happy Days Again for it's initial syndication run for some odd reason.

Weirdly enough, when my local station began airing it, they began with season three, not season one. Of course, once they ran through seasons 3-6, they aired seasons one and two.

Throwback is right. And I definitely didn't hear Happy Days Again during the bumper.

I get paid programming on ME-TV sometimes so I dont see Happy Days on ME-TV but I think its cool that they have the bumpers. ME-TV sticking with there motto. Hopefully, it stays that way.

Yea I remember the Happy Days Again years. I always thought that was kind of stupid.

I don't recall the exact source, but I read somewhere that the purpose of using the name "Happy Days Again" was to distinguish the old, already aired episodes from the new ones.

Not really. M*A*S*H debuted that same fall of 1979 in syndication under its original title.

I knew that the local stations showed reruns and the networks showed the new episodes.

Maybe because MASH didn't have any spinoffs like HD. I'm guessing they did it because L&S and HD were all connected and they wanted to change the title for syndication since they had several crossovers

I think the worst sitcom retitling for syndication was Laverne & Shirley & Company. Too long.

Let me ask, why did they go with Laverne & Shirley & Company?
