Default ORIGINAL ARNOLD'S

I did a Google and found it.

The opening scene of Happy Days, hot rods and a drive up roller skate burger joint that was called Arthurs and Arnolds
http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2013...-days-hot.html



Check out some other shots when it was "Arthur's" from the FIRST episode. In one photo is a far away shot showing more of the place which is kinda cool right?


Arnold's Drive-In

For the Cunningham's and the Fonz, Arnold's was their home away from home. The set was reportedly modeled after The Milky Way Drive-In in Wisconsin, but the diner has since been demolished. The set, like the original inspiration, is also gone. But the memories made at Arnold's live on...

While not every episode was bad in later years I generally consider The New Arnold's the the real "Jump The Shark" moment for Happy Days.

I have to agree with you there. It was such a major change along with all the other changes the show was just so different, that A LOT of the magic was just gone. There were pockets of good moments but far and few between.

The funny thing about the change to the new Arnold's was that because the network aired the episodes out of sequence (the order they were filmed in), the final episode of season 7 takes place at the old Arnolds.

With ALL the mistakes they made, it REALLY makes you wonder who was making and allowing all these bad decisions to happen? Did everyone just not care and phone it all in from home?

It also makes me wonder if they'll put these shows in broadcast order or production order if season 7 comes out on DVD someday.

Arnold's response is "When are you going to clean it up?" Loved that the writers actually let Arnold get a little dig in about the remodel.

Even watching as a kid, I liked the fire episode, but wasn't thrilled with the new look that came afterwards. Plus, when watching later on in reruns, the New Arnold's always meant the Ron Howard era of the show was almost over. Talk about a one-two punch.
That would have been during the next-to-last season (S10), because Al had been moved to Chicago with Chachi's mom for Joanie Loves Chachi. so Arnold got his old restaurant back. He apparently wasn't brought back for the last Happy Days season, except for Joanie & Chachi's wedding (He also married them as Al's twin brother, Father Delvecchio.), even though Joanie & Chachi were. Linda Purl as Ashley was also dumped at the same time, so the producers would have enough $ to bring back Erin Moran & Scott Baio, whose characters were still popular even if their spinoff wasn't.

I remember that Joanie acknowledged that Fonzie and Ashley broke up and Fonzie mentioned it later. Remember when the old Arnold's had a expresso machine? It was before Arnold's burned down. You could see it in the infamous "Melvin Scratch" episode where Chacahi sells his soul. An expresso machine just doesnt work with Arnolds.

I remember that episode. I wish the devil had taken Chachi and his soul.

And don't forget the Weezer video. It used the old set too.

Watching the later episodes from 1980-84, the new Arnold's reminded me of a country-western bar with the saloon doors, the bar area, the wood, the stained glass, and the bench seating.

Oh, I agree. I didn't like the New Arnold's. Not only by what you mentioned but there wasn't any backs to where you sit so when you leaned back on the bench you'd fall down.
