Anyone else think we should have seen Potsie's father? The later seasons would have been the perfect time to finally show him. It would have shown Postie's life beyond being a friend of the others.

Maybe his family was REALLY, REALLY, screwed up! The way his Dad treated him suggests that. Perhaps compared to them he was actually rather normal. Which is one of the reasons he acts the way he did. Playing the role of dummy because his family does not expect anything else from him. Which is why he wanted to study Psychology.

Hey Avilos, guess what ... besides writing Potsie a different Future, I've also written about why his Father treated him that Way. And about why he always has been Dummy-like.

Yeah we never did meet Potsies parents threw out the whole run of Happy Days. We met Ralph's dad. He was played by Jack Dodson,who like Ron was in The Andy Griffith Show.
Yeah they could of got another Andy Griffith Show star to play Potsies dad? Jim Nabors would of been nice. Or the actor that played Ernest T. Bass?
Also I assume Potsies family was at The High School Graduation in the Graduation episode? Where was they sitting? We know The Cunninghams,Spike,Al,and Arnold was at the gangs graduation.But where was Potsies family sitting? Come to think of it was Ralphs family in that episode too? I'll have to watch that episode again.

Default i dont know if misuse is right

potsie still being ther after ralph and richie left was indeed a problem.besides the fonz, in earlier years ,the show was more centered around the three boys richie,ralph,and potsie.so what do you do with the one guy left,the story lines
were now joannie and chachi,and then jenny p.for a bit.where does potsie fit in?he and fonzie were never really close and to try and move them closer would have taken away from the legendary friendship of richie and the fonz.i dont agree with the way they turned the potsie character into such an idiot.
but where do you place him in those latter episodes.potsie always had a very big heart .turning him into an idiot was just wrong.perhaps bringing in roger
wasnt a great move either because he was even more goody,goody than richie himself.11 years is a longtime for a show to last.but its even a harder
task to keep the characters relovent to the show.so i guess keeping him around was a pity gester more than anything.if i was anson i would have left with richie and ralph.but this is something that just is what it is. i just could never understand why ralph or potsie were not included in the final episode
potsie was in the credits in the final season.i think i counted awhile back potsie was in less than half of the episodes in season 11 .

Hey Iris, I'm wondering if you've written any fanfic 'bout Potsie (in your post it seems you've written something, and I'm looking for it).

Anyway, there are some great fic on fanfiction.net.
It's interesting that every fic 'bout Potsie centered on his family (in a dramatic way).

Iris, I would love to read your fanfics! I think Potsie should have been used more definitely, meeting his parents would have been great.
