I'm on the second disk already and so far, I'm LOVING it. I forgot so many of these episodes, and I think season six is one of Happy Day's STRONGEST season's yet....minus the hokey 3 part dude-ranch story-line that kicked off the season. But once that was over....the episodes are GREAT.

I've only noticed one part where it appears that a song was cut out, the scene kicks in right as everyone is clapping and Al thanks the band for playing. But I was happy to see that the whole MONSTER MASH song made it in the Halloween episode. I've always loved their fun twist on it.

The picture quality is great but I agree the Dude Ranch 3 part episodes feel more like a movie special instead of a regular episode.

I HATED that DUDE RANCH 3 part episode. I thought it was HORRIBLE for many reasons. Fonz acted like a JERK to Richie the whole time, and then Fonz (OUT OF NO WHERE) KNOWS how to ride a wild bull? In my opinion, this was TRULY the Jump the Shark episode and was WAY worse than the Shark. At Least with the shark you can CLEARLY see Henry Winkler KNEW how to ACTUALLY WATER SKI (for reasons not explained) but HOW does Fonz know how to ride a bull? Or are they saying there is absolutely NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NEEDED by anyone required just pure Luck or "Cool" as it were to accomplish this task? SO SILLY.

While I don't love the dude ranch eps, this is one of my favorite seasons for the simple reason it was somewhere in the middle of this season I started watching HD as it aired. Only watched some so far as I'm trying to stretch this out. Seems to be the same strategy as season 5 so far, songs performed by the cast are in there, with but some other stuff has been replaced. Edit: watching a ep now and there is original music playing. So whatever the ratio, looks like there is more original music present than season 5.

Yeah, as much as I LOVE this show...the dude ranch episodes really stunk. But almost ALL the other episodes this season so far are REALLY touching and more emotional....I LOVE that.

Hey I have a question and I hate t bring this up, so far after hearing how great the dvd is please tell me what original music is actually being played and as for all of the band performances is what they are showing on the dvd which was cut in syndication I hope that Todd will put the reviews up but it takes time but is all of the original music intact

I really can't answer that. I have no way to tell what's original and what isn't. I don't have anything to compare this to. Maybe someone else can help.

Today, I watched FONZIE'S FUNERAL from season 6, and I forgot about the guest appearance from the Laverne & Shirley cast. Laverne, Shirley, Lenny, Squiggy and Carmine show up at Fonzie's funeral and the results are HYSTERICAL.

This episode alone is worth the entire season. Some REALLY great episodes in season six.

Haven't watched that yet, especially as it's a two parter. But this is really great under rated season, IMO that is dragged down by the dude ranch eps. Another great one is the "The Duel" where, while no punches are thrown we really get a glimpse of how formidable The Fonz is. I also happened to still have my original tape from TV Land for what is essentially the last 4 episodes of season 6. With only that for comparison it is still REALLY tough to tell where there are replacements as it's obvious some music was already replaced even in those airings.

Just compared the DVD and my TV land copy side. "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "The Great Pretender" are replaced with sound a likes. "Great Pretender" is also replaced in "The Duel".

Included so far: Band & Leather Tuscadero performances intact

"Great Pretender" and "Blueberry Hill" played one episode. (Cassonava Cunningham)
"Poison Ivy" Instrumental played in one episode
(Sweet Sixteen)

"The Twist" played in one episode
(Stolen Melodies)

Everything else is so far replaced. The odd thing is while it's great to hear a tad more of original music I'm wondering if the two songs particularly "The Great Pretender" getting through was some sort of error. I've never seen something like that before, where a song is used in one episode but replaced in the rest.
