Default The Lords of Flatbush reunion

I would have liked to see more hidden Easter eggs in the show.
Example: Episode "Because It's There" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0596158/
Fonzie shocks his friends when he throws his leather jacket away after finding a note taped to the bottom of the old cookie jar that held the last three cookies his mother baked for him before she deserted him...until he finally tells them why.

Fonz switched back to his windbreaker in Happy Days: Season 11, Episode 1 wearing a jacket similar to Season 1 and 2. IF and when I find the photo, I'll add it next to this photo for comparison. It was a retro throwback!


OR I would have loved to see a "Lords of Flatbush" re-union, Henry would play the Fonz, and his old crew would stop by just to say hello or whatever in thieir character and costume. Probably near impossible because Stallone was a big star by 1980.

Now I know they did have Fonz reunite with his old Falcon gang in these episodes
Season 9, Episode 1: Home Movies: Part 1 - October 6 1981 and
Season 9, Episode 2: Home Movies: Part 2
But I would have LOVED to see the old crew from the Lords of Flatbush get together as a retro throwback innstead.

Yeah, I doubt Sly Stallone would have made an appearance on Happy Days back in the '80s, but it would have been fun if he did.

The movie is not that good but it is WEIRD to see Henry so young in the movie which obviously got him the audition and the role as the Fonz as we all know. Although he looks like Fonzie in the film he acts more like a wise cracking young punk kid in the film. It was Stallone's performance as Stanley in the film that led to Henry to emulate his character and adapt it to the Fonz. I have seen him say this in many interviews. Years ago, the WHOLE 1974 film WAS on Youtube but has since been removed but IF you want to see Henry as Butchie you can watch it here:

Season 9, Episode 1: Home Movies: Part 1 - October 6 1981 and

Season 9, Episode 2: Home Movies: Part 2
But I would have LOVED to see the old crew from the Lords of Flatbush get together as a retro throwback instead.

Marshall’s shows could be awfully stupid, but there are good moments in the early seasons of Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and Mork & Mindy. Happy Days, in particular, starts out as a nostalgic look back at a simpler time many Americans (like Archie Bunker) longed for in the ’70s. (See also: American Graffiti, the sitcom’s obvious inspiration.) As the show continues, it switches from a single-camera to a multi-camera filming style, and the Fonz takes over the series. Both changes would ultimately hurt the show, but the first two seasons offer the best example of Marshall’s style. Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy both start out broad and dumb, but Laverne features winning comic performances from the ensemble, and Mork features early Robin Williams at his least filtered. If stupid but popular sitcoms of the era are your thing, Three’s Company is far from subtle but boasts great work by John Ritter.

My moments for JTS are: Richie and the guys graduate high school. That would have been a perfect ending for a coming of age show.

Fonzie jumps over the shark in a leather jacket. Hello! You don't wear leather in water!

Richie and Ralph left. Fonzie has no one left to interact with. Roger felt forced and Potsie was too stupid, annoying and useless.

The introduction of characters like KC, Flip and the Belvin Brothers.

Fonzie goes monogamous with Ashley, only for the character to be gone the next season, having reconciled with her husband. That's just like when that lady with the little boy Bobby, reconciled with her husband. Fonzie seems to have trouble in actual relationships with women.

Fonzie letting Tom Hanks beat him up.

Fonzie in a bunny suit, no matter what the reason.

In the three-part “Hollywood,” Happy Days literally jumped the shark

Wow, that is interesting. Imagine if they brought back Gaven O'Herlihy or Randolph Roberts instead of Ted McGinley.

The show revolved around Richie Cunningham.

No Richie, no show.

Amen. Happy Days without Richie would be like a sandwich without the meat. Christmas without the presents under the tree. And cookies without milk.

I think the show would have been a little better if Anson Williams left instead of Donny Most

That way you would have still had Fonzie and Ralph Malph



Postie was a NERD and GOOFBALL

I liked Potsie in the early seasons, but yeah, the years after Ralph and Richie were gone, Potsie was pretty much useless.

Wonder why he wasn't phased out of the show
