It sounds like it was never a dull moment. And I think the Jacket episode would have been great! Dang! I feel bad you didn't get to play when you were with the team. Well thanks David77 for HD scoop.

You're welcome. No problememo. Yeah, I wish they filmed that other episode also. Not just for the money, I thought it was a good idea. Classic Happy Days. Can't you just picture Richie, Ralph & Potise trying to get Fonzie's measurements while he tossed and turned? Ralph yelps when Fonzie grabs his head instead of his pillow? Oh well. I got paid for it.
I still get a check every time they play Potsie Quits School. $36.00 after taxes. You can't beat that.
Today in my memory banks: that's the name of my new book!
Ha ha. That's not a bad idea either! See how it works Camera Girl?? One thing leads to another. Just keep the ideas flowing on paper. A steady stream. Edit later. Don't feel bad about the baseball team. I was never good at baseball. I was just happy to get the shirt.

David77, yesterday TVLand aired 'Sweet Sixteen'. I was a little shocked when Fonzie grabbed Joanie's PJ top. I did laugh, but I was a little surprised by it.

I don't remember it ever being an issue at any writing meetings.
If anything it was probably a form of humor and affection on Fonzie's part. Grabbing the jacket was another gesture like thumbs up. Remember a few posts back I told you how Henry was big on gestures? He may have just done it on the spot.
They had a network censor in the booth every Friday afternoon at dress rehearsal and Friday night also. Between dress rehearsal and filming they had time to make writing changes if there were any issues or notes from the network. If it seemed at all out of line they would have called the producers on it. Those censors were very strict at that period in time. Nothing like Tv in today's world.

Hey does anyone remember a soda commercial which aired during Happy Days that had a girl in shorts roller skating down a sidewalk drinking a pepsi or dr pepper? That was Erin Moran's sister! Whoa.

David, here's a question about Season 6: why wasn't Chachi used for the first half of the season? Scott Baio had been a regular all throughout Season 5 and even appeared in the opening credits. He was missing for the first half of Season 6 until he suddenly was back, on both the show and in the opening credits. Any idea why? Thanks for posting on here!

Default Chachi

To answer your question HappyDaysDude, I am pretty sure Scott Baio was offered another series for the '78-'79 season, and it was canceled mid-season.. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

Yeah, Scott Baio was out the first few months. I don't know where he was. He was around the lot somewhere. I didn't really get to know him. I know he and Erin Moran were very close at that time.

David, thanks for your reply. Here is another question about Season 6: were you in any way involved in the episode titled "The Magic Show?" Did the cast members really perform their own magic? And do you know how any of the tricks were done? The "Milk Can" trick looked pretty dangerous and I doubt if the producers would have risked Henry Winkler's safety if any real danger was involved. How did Henry learn to perform all those magic tricks, especially since you say he only came in to work 1 day a week? Another really good trick in the epidode was when the magician (Amazing Randi) made Al's radio disapear.

Again, thanks a lot and any insight you have into this episode would be much appreciated!

Hello, yes, I remember the magic show. Walter Kempley was friends with The Amazing Randi. That is how they got him. Yes, there was an element of risk for Henry to do the milk can trick.
Inside the can was a large empty glass jar with a lid on it. You sit with it between your legs. When it is unscrewed it fills up with water enough to leave air for the person in the can to breathe. The risk factor was what if Henry could not get the lid off the jar once he was in there. So it was exciting for everyone! He did it once at dress rehearsal and was confident he could pull it off that night. I can remember seeing him come out of it and everyone in the booth was like, "Yes!" It was great.
I know the cast did their own tricks. I don't remember how The Amazing Randi made the radio disapear. Gary Marshall's kids were in that show too.
Another thing I remember about that show is Bobby Hoffman cast George Fenneman as the MC. and at that time George Fenneman and Tom Bosley had been rivals for broadcasting jobs.
