Default Happy Days Are Here Again on Me-TV

https://metv.com/shows/happy-days

As I'm sure you all know, starting Monday, after a long hiatus, "Happy Days" return to Me-TV as the hit '70s sitcom "Happy Days" returns to Me-TV.

That being said, here are my personal Hopes and Prayers of what's to come.

Among OTHER Hopes and Prayers, I HOPE and I PRAY that the Complete 255 half-hour library of "Happy Days" on Me-TV is shown 100% Complete, 100% Uncut, AND 100% Unedited, as originally telecast on the ABC Television Network, including, among other things omitted from the DVDs, Original Background Music of '50s-era songs as well as the original 1st-season theme song, "Rock Around the Clock" (omitted from Episodes 17-39 on the 1st-season "Happy Days" DVD), along with all scenes INTACT from each episode.

I also Hope and I also PRAY that the original Paramount Television logo of the era (respectively the Paramount Television logo used for Season 1 in 1974-1975 as well as the Paramount Television logo from 1975-1984) is also included when Me-TV starts airing "Happy Days" on Monday, Monday, Monday!!!

Created by Garry Marshall, "Happy Days" originally aired on the ABC Television Network for TEN Years from January 15, 1974 - July 12, 1984, originally debuting as a mid-season replacement show in January 1974.

Its original Pilot was used as an episode of the Comedy Anthology series "Love, American Style"; in its first season, "Happy Days" had low ratings despite a good cast--among others Ronny Howard (fresh from "Mayberry") as teenage son Richie Cunningham, Marion Ross as matriarch Marion Cunningham, Henry Winkler as "Fonzie," and Tom Bosley as patriarch Howard Cunningham.

During this season (the first 39 episodes), "Happy Days" was filmed single-camera, with no audience and a laugh track inserted, at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, California after which the series from 1975-1984, at the start of its 2nd season, began being filmed Multi-Camera in front of a live audience at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles; the series spun off no less than 5 other sitcoms: "Laverne & Shirley," "Mork & Mindy," and "Joanie Loves Chachi" along with the short-lived "Blansky's Beauties" in 1977 and "Out of the Blue" in 1979.

"Happy Days" was the first hit series for Miller-Boyett Productions (originally known as Miller-Milkis Productions, Inc. and later Miller-Milkis-Boyett Productions before adopting its best-known Miller-Boyett Productions name), which produced the series for Paramount Domestic Television, with current syndication rights owned by Paramount's successor, CBS Television Studios.

You'll have to watch Sunday to see it from episode 1 going forward, not sure why they started the weekdays with season 2 and the weekends with season 1.

The first two nights they didn't have Rock Around The Clock. Tonight they did and also had the original music in the episode, at least some of it anyway. I don't know if there were any replaced.

I was waiting for dinner when my mom came in and turned on my TV and I asked why she turned my television on and she told me "METV has Happy Days now" and as we sat there watching it I recalled what a fun show it was and my mother likes Happy Days too and has been watching it every day since METV added it this week. And when the end credits rolled my mom showed me the theme song and told me about it too. We then tried to see if METV had another episode of Happy Days to watch but all we found was MASH. Happy Days is a great replacement for The Flintstones and I hope METV keeps it. If Happy Days is successful on METV they should also add the Fonz And The Happy Days Gang cartoon to the lineup to honor Happy Days

They are playing season 2 now at 6:30 and I notice they are using a chopped up version of the later-seasons opening theme. I taped these off local TV around 10 years ago and they had Rock Around the Clock as the opening theme in syndication, which I think is original to the show. What's up, MeTV?

When the show was first syndicated in 1979 as Happy Days Again, my local station started off with season 3!

I didn't see seasons one and two until they'd cycled through seasons 3-6.

It's kind of like the Star Wars prequels -- start with season 3 and watch the first two after you've seen everything else.
