Default Happy Days: The Complete Series: The Ultimate Edition?

To CBS Home Entertainment:
Can you release a Complete Series DVD box set of "Happy Days" (1974-1984)?
There are several fans who want to see a Complete Series DVD box set of Happy Days this year.
All 255 episodes should be digitally restored and remastered (from the original film elements) in high definition (1080p), and they should be unedited.
The original Paramount Television logos should be included at the end of the episodes.
All the 1950s/1960s music that was used in the series should be cleared, so the episodes can be unaltered.
“Rock Around the Clock” should be restored to the opening credits for Season 2.
Garry Marshall wants all the original music to be included in the episodes.
The episodes that originally aired after "Passages" (the final episode) should be included before it in the DVD set.
Bonus features, new and old, should be included in the set, including TV spots (from ABC, syndication, Nick at Nite, TV Land, WGN, Me-TV, and INSP), ABC bumpers, commercials with the cast, a PSA with the cast about leukemia, mistakes in the episodes, new episode introductions from Garry Marshall and the cast, unreleased bloopers, cast interviews (including lengthy excerpts from Tom Bosley, Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross, Pat Morita, and Garry Marshall's interviews with the Archive of American Television), audio/text commentaries, photo galleries, documentaries (including TVography: Happy Days (2001), Entertainment Tonight in TV Land: Secrets of Happy Days (1999), Biography: Happy Days (2003), Henry Winkler Meets William Shakespeare (1977), the Biographies of Henry Winkler (2000) and Ron Howard (1999/2008), and all-new documentaries), text biographies of the cast, reunion specials (1992/2005), lists of music and guest stars in the episodes, production notes (noting inside jokes, pop culture references, and behind-the-scenes information), both versions of the pilot (New Family in Town (1971), and Love and the Happy Days (1972)), episodes of Laverne and Shirley (and the Mork and Mindy pilot) with characters from Happy Days, Henry Winkler's home movies from the series, scripts from the series in .PDF format, memorabilia from the series, and other things should be included.
Easter Eggs (hidden bonus features, appearing as hidden mini-jukeboxes) should be included in the set.
Here are some extra bonus features for this set:
Sitcom: The Adventures of Garry Marshall (1979)
The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang (animated series, 1980-1981, 24 episodes)
Joanie Loves Chachi (1982-1983, 17 episodes)

Animated (interactive) menus with the theme song should be included.
Scene selection menus, chapter stops, and a "Play All" option should be included with all the episodes.
English subtitles should be included with the episodes and special features.
The alternate introductions for "Guess Who's Coming to Christmas", one with Arnold (Pat Morita), and the other with Al (Al Molinaro), should
be included.
Both endings for "Shotgun Wedding: Part 1" should be included.
The scene with "The Andy Griffith Show" should be restored to the "My Favorite Orkan" episode.
Both endings for the "My Favorite Orkan" episode should be included.

This is the most totally unrealistic expectation for a TV on DVD set that I have ever seen.

It's not completely unrealistic.
There are a lot of people who would like to see this set happen.

i think we will be more likely to see any future sets available as download or streaming versions before they release any more physical dvd versions of anything Happy Days -related

it would be awesome to see a complete series set, but I think it would be impossible, except maybe in Germany.

I don't think eps need to be remastered in HD. As long as it's clear enough to watch and the eps are uncut that should be enough.

The bonus features alone would fill up their own box set.

We'll be lucky if we get no-frills/episode-only season box sets, much less something like this.

The main thing that should be on the bonus DVD set is part 2 of shotgun wedding.

And the Happy Days episode should have the original cliffhanger ending.

The most important thing is to have the original, unedited episodes with original music.

Beyond that, I think a more realistic expectation for bonus features would be to have the aforementioned "Shotgun Wedding" conclusion that aired as an episode of Laverne & Shirley, the original pilots, some bloopers and a behind-the-scenes documentary.

The rights to acquire all the bonus features would probably be more than the national debt.

Bloopers would be way down on the list for a bonus feature since HD has so much to get straight with the music right and other eps that concluded on L&S

Now that I think of it, wasn't there a fourth season episode that crossed over into a Laverne & Shirley episode? It was the one where Fonzie's friend's pregnant wife Louisa visits and has her baby while visiting.

Didn't Laverne & Shirley end up watching the newborn in an episode? I'm not even sure if any HD cast members appeared in the episode, but I think the character of Louisa did.

Agreed. It wasn't shot in HD, so it should not be presented in HD. I'm still not a big fan of seeing Seinfeld in widescreen HD on TV.

Plus, the cost is going to be high enough with all of the music. Just think what a Blu Ray box set of this series would cost with ONLY the uncut episodes.

I think this is really going overboard. It is impossible that there would ever be a set like this. But I do wish CBS Paramount would hurry up and release the rest of the Happy Days seasons individually and then maybe a complete series set with maybe a few bonuses, but nothing like you are describing would ever happen.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Joanie Loves Chachi episode with commentary by Scott Baio.

He once described that series as a "cesspool," so I think hearing him bash an episode would be funny.
