Studd911, I can respect your choice to be angry and boycott season 5. I haven't read anyone here trying to change your mind. We get your point, you only have to make it once, then please stop. You have been following up EVERY positive post with another rant about how much you HATE it. You are the one not respecting any one else's right to disagree with you.

Hey i love everybody on this blog and i respect everybody way of thinking, all i was basically saying was i cannot support a company who betrayed the fan who buys there dvds and all i was saying was we have waited a long time and when you thank about happy days you mostly think about the founding fathers of tv meaning a classic and with a show like that it should be presented the way in which we all remembered i am just those type of people who sees the truth the way it is and not suggercoating it and i no that you all feel the same way, again i am not going to get myself stress out about this wherefore i cannot and will not support a company who continues to put out bad products and with any show to me it should be taking care of as i said once before and i am going to leave it like that wherefore i cannot see the series itself finishing or maybe it will which really depends how the sells go im not trying to be funny but being aware of the problem again if you all love the dvds i will not put you down because that was what you all wanted but again wherefore i am only speaking about me personally and not anybody else that i cannot stick with CBS not unless they change there ways of promoting there dvd but thank you all for having a better understanding and that is far as i will go

I hope the rest of the seasons are released on DVD with or without these music cuts. I've downloaded season 6-11 and the season 6-7 episodes all had 25.2x run times which is very equal to the DVDs. But then I reached season 8 and 9 and the run times are 27-28 minutes with 5-6 minutes of commercials. So unless the original season 8-9 run times were at the 22 minutes mark (?), I am getting 4-5 minutes cut from each episode.

I don't have old VHS tapes of the original run and I don't have access to the show on TV so the next best thing are DVDs. So I hope the rest is released.

I got my copy in and it looks AWESOME. For ME, I don't care if the original Chubby Checker song plays in the background, or a new song that I never heard of plays, to me, it's all just background music.

Sure, I can WISH it was all the original music, but I wont let it ruin my opportunity to enjoy great humor and a wonderful show.

And I can only speak for myself.

Customer Review Happy Days 3.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season, Another so-so DVD Set., May 23, 2014
Although the picture does look fabulous and there are a lot of episodes I love.... CBS DVD/Paramount has yet again replace most (not all) the original music in the show with generic music. You still get a few original songs (ex. "Be My Valentine" and Potsie singing popular songs of the day). But for the most part it is disappointing regarding the replacement music - especially the little a-capella songs such as lines as "Cream In My Coffee" (Fonzie) and "Tea For Two" (Postie/Ralph). The worst scene is where Leather (and the band) go through the motions of playing/singing "Johnny B. Goode" with a generic instrumental (where Leather is seen moving her mouth to an instrumental!).... Of course as other reviewer has pointed out - there's only a piano instrumental during the flashback scene in "Richie's Accident" instead of Leather singing a touching song (what is the name of this song?) .... Overall I'd rate this a C only on the basis that the Music is replaced. The picture and episodes are still good (and for the most part unedited).....Somewhat disappointing after the improvement of Seasons 3 & 4.
ah the best episode remove leathers song, May 22, 2014 I watched my favorate episode from this season
'Richie almost dies, and the sadest scene music has been changed when leather sings , instead its changed by a piano music ,, ughit took away the whole emotional vigil, c'mon man !!!

I notice they left the music out . bummer! I guess there were legal issues. I just finished the Apartment and noticed Tea for Two was missing. other than that the shows had endings I hadn't seen since the ABC first showed them.

I didn't want to go through eight pages of stuff, so I may repeat some points about this set in this post.

Overall, I like it.

I am wondering, though, why "California" is presented as three separate half hour episodes. In the original network airing parts 1 & 2 were shown as an hour long episode, which was the standard for Happy Days' season openers back then.

And I did notice that Leather's song was omitted from the "Richie Almost Dies" episode and that generic rock music was substituted for "Johnny B. Goode" when Leather played that snowy lodge. Too bad, but I guess Paramount wasn't willing to shell out the $$$ for the original music.
