Question Did Don Most do the right thing in leaving with Ron Howard

I mean, it isn't like he set the world on fire post-Happy Days. He appeared in a lot of low budget, sex comedies after Happy Days went off the air. It was around this time that he was billing himself as "Donald Most" instead of "Donny Most" in a futile attempt to distance himself from his Ralph Malph persona. For instance, Most appeared on the 1982 Halloween episode of CHiPs as Moloch, a shock rocker made up like a Kiss reject. The most high-profile stuff that he did post-Happy Days were arguably providing the voices of Eric the Cavalier and Stiles on the Dungeons & Dragons and Teen Wolf animated series.

So what if he hasn't had the most high profile career since then? The only thing that matters is if Don Most thinks it was the "right thing" for him to do. And since we don't know how he feels about it then I don't see the point in talking about it.

He must have thought the offers would be rolling in.

Ralph is my least favorite of the original foursome, consisting of Richie, Fonzie, Potsie and Ralph, so I'm not too fussed he left the show. Though, it would have probably been better in the long run if he just stayed, then maybe Potsie would have had a bigger in the last few seasons.

Potsie without Ralph Malph didn’t seem right.

I wish he had stayed with the show. The loss of both Richie and Ralph as well as the travesty of Arnold's burning was too much. Why did they make Arnold's look like a Western Steakhouse when they rebuilt it?

Apparently, they wanted to give Arnold's a 60's makeover, as by that time in the show, it had reached that decade. Though, I don't see what's so 60's about it.

It seemed that the writers really didn't know what to do with Potsie without having Ralph and Richie to play off of.

It wasn't like all of a sudden Potsie was going to become Fonzie's new best friend or anything like that, because Fonzie could barely tolerate him at times.

And yes, I do remember the episode where Fonzie became Potsie's buddy to pay him back for saving his life, but Fonzie was at his wits end having to spend all his spare time with Potsie and their relationship went back to normal at the end of that episode. Fonzie seemed like he was going to have a nervous breakdown after having to do nearly everything being at Potsie's side.
