Default Happy Days: 20 Years Later episode guide

Season 1

1. Welcome To Milwaukee

The summer of 1985 is coming to a close and Danielle (Danni) Cunningham is on the phone to her older brother about her 19th birthday party. While she reflects back to the past fourteen years in Milwaukee, she discovers that her life has been through changes. Her uncle Chachi's band, The Skylarks, are breaking up, her older brother Richie Jr. (a.k.a R.J) is still in LA working on his new movie and Danni needs a hair cut. So many things have changed that it makes Richie sick of changes so he cancels Danni's birthday. But later, Lori Beth makes her realize that changes makes us different from rocks and Richie and Lori Beth reinstate Danni's party just in time for some news from her friends.

NOTE: The Happy Days series is re-named Happy Days: 20 Years Later from this episode on.
The Graduation photo that Richie took of Danni is shown on Danni's desk in this episode.
Edmund (Eddie) Weber and Alison (Allie) Malph mention that their parents look different to the last time we saw them. This is because Potsie is now married to Courtney from 'Potsie On His Own' becuase Loretta from 'A Potsie Is Born' died of heart failure in 1980. Also, Roger and Jenny are married, so are Fonzie and Daphne and Ralph and Leather.
Eugene (Gene) Philips mentions that he and his twin brother Elvis were named after 50s rock 'n' roll singers. She is referring to Elvis Presley and Gene Vincent.
Jane Martell mentions that Allie's father Ralph once courted her mother Bunny Martell in College and she is now a single mother to Jane.
Daniel (Danny) Fonzarelli mentions that the Stray Cats split up in 1984.
The Skylarks album cover for "The Illusion" is very similiar to Queen's album cover for "The Miracle".
Danni's birthday is August 15, which is seven months after the original air date of "All The Way" (January 15).
From this episode to the series finale, the end credits changes to pictures of the gang and their families and how their parents looked during the Happy Days run and how they look now and the opening credits show the gang with each other and their families and friends doing things together.

3. Slapstick Land

The gang go to Slapstick Land with their families and English Professor but end up battling a group of malafunctioned robots.

NOTE: Jane appears in this episode without a dialogue.
Prof. Jerome, Prof. Tribianni and Prof. Dinkleburg are the only staff members in this episode.
In this episode, they briefly allude to Jerry Lewis being a washed up celebrity working in a bar.
One of the extraneous toys found at the gift shop is a Charlie Chaplin glove puppet.
When Elvis tells Eddie that there's another fine mess he's gotten them into and later another nice mess he's gotten him into, he was reffering to Oliver Hardy's mantra from some L&H shorts.

5. Postcards From Allie

Pack your bags! Allie's going to New York to visit her dad's cousin Ben. She won't have to go alone; the others and their parents will be joining her. Later in NYC, Ben and the gang enjoy all the wonderous sights of New York, including Central Park and Broadway. With his trusty video camera documenting every move, Eddie's having a blast! But what happens when the gang get lost in Chinatown?

NOTE: This special episode introduces Metabolica, Eddie's band of college students including Elvis.
This episode gives a name for Ralph's cousin in the NYPD: Police Captain Benjiman James 'Ben' Malph.
UWM's Baseball Team is now called the "UWM Tigers" and we learn that the gang and their parents support the Green Bay Packers.
The NYC airport is named the JFK Airport. It was named after John F. Kennedy not John Belushi, Ferlin Husky and Kenny Rogers as Allie pointed out to Eddie in Welcome To Milwaukee.

6. The Newer Crew

Tired of Eddie and the gang getting all the glory from Dean Clarkson, Rob and Ashley decide to get a gang of their own together. They recruit Denim Tuscadero, Lee McKenna, Nikki Hightower and Kirsten Armstrong and together the six start solving the playground's problems and getting the glory. Of course Eddie and co now have nothing to do, so they are left just talking and eventually realise that just being friends is much better than getting all the glory they used to have. Friends being something that the gang (except for Ashley and Rob are definitely not...

NOTE: There are lots of references to other comedy shows in this episode, such as Monty Python's Flying Circus, Laverne & Shirley and M*A*S*H.
There is a sequence where the College safety partol arrest Jim Murray when he steals the head of the UWM founder. That was already attempted in The Simpsons.
In this episode, Dean Clarkson's first name is Wayne, Prof. Jeorme's is Jennifer, Prof. Dinkleburg's is Allen and Prof. Tribiani's is Salvatore.
In the scene where Rob and Kirsten are Charleston dancing, you can see Prof. Tribbiani (probably Joey's dad) in a brief shot of the audience.

8. Danni's Comet

The gang try to help Danni find a comet to impress Elvis but ends up shooting off thanks to two former army pilots gone AWOL until Eddie and Allie save her.

NOTE: Danni is scared of heights.
Allie and Eddie have been going steady since 1978.
Elvis's middle name is Roger.
This episode gives us first proof that Jane has a thing for Gene when she becomes his lab partner.
Marion, Joanie and Chachi do not appear in this episode. Amy appears in the beginning of this episode without a dialouge.
The pilots might remind us of Mr Wink and Mr Fibb from Codename: Kids Next Door.
There are also some refernces to Codename: Kids Next Door in this episode.

9. Happy Birthday, Jane

Rob and Ashley attempt to ruin a birthday Party for Jane at Arnold's but Eddie and Elvis stand between the 'snobs' and the greatest Cake ever!

NOTE: This is the first appearance of Bunny Martell, Jane's mother.
The real names of the gang are: Eddie: Edmund, Allie: Alison, Danni: Danielle and Gene: Eugene. Jane and Elvis have their own nicknames Elvis: King and Jane: Janey.
Elvis and Eddie's fight against Ashley and Rob is apparantly like the fight in 'Joanie's Weird Boyfriend'.
Some of the students from When Pants Attack return in this episode as party guests.
Apparently, neither Rob, Ashley or the rest of the gang ever learned an important safety tip: don't eat before you go into water.
Eddie and Elvis seem to have a counter part on each team these are who they are assumed they are: Eddie....Rob (reason of choice: Rob, like Eddie, is a bit bossy and is probably a bit of a rebel and a leader) Elvis....Ashley (reason of choice: Ashley, like Elvis, tends to be a bit of a gossip due to his leader friend)
Amy, Wanda, Lou and Becky do not appear in this episode.

10. Stray Cat Star

Enlgish teen pop sensation Rodney West is making a new music video for his debut US hit single and everyone in UWM wants bright chompers so they can be in it, even Eddie and Allie but when they hear that Rob and Ashley are also going ot be on set, they decide to get even. As if that isn't bad enough, Rodney's rival - Del Murphy - is going to make his own video parodying Rodney's own. However, the gang get Rob and Ashley fired as co-directors and save the video which they shoot and all in one take.

NOTE: In Dr. Bender's office, a file can be seen labeled, "Malph, Alison Claire: Age 19" and another can be seen labeled "Weber, Edmund Warren: Aged 19"
According to Eddie, "Thunderbird Baby" is the second US hit song made by Rodney West, the first was "Your Game" which is also a Will Young song.
Rodney West looks and sounds like Will Young and Del Murphy looks and sounds like Darius Danesh.
Rodney's dad Marty West was in the early 60s group the Wonders.
Amy, Joanie, Chachi, Lou, Becky and Marion do not appear in this episode.
The janitor guy looks a bit like Simon Cowell a.k.a Mr Nasty.

12. Meet The Grandparents

Amy is asked to a report about her grandparents so she takes Danni's time machine and travels back to 1931 when her grandparents Howard and Marion Cunningham first met but the problem is that Howard is a bit tough and Marion has a boyfriend, Hector Con Carne who was Mr C's best friend back then.

NOTE: The plot of this episode is very similar to the first Back to the Future movie where Marty McFly disrupts his parents' first meeting.
Marion, Becky, Lou, Joanie and Chachi do not appear in this episode.
Eddie makes a slight reference to the events of Back to the Future, when Marty interrupted his parents' first meeting.
Hector acts a bit like Dr Benedict in Recess: School's Out.
When the Cunninghams met for the first time, Howard was a sophomore and Marion was a freshman in college.

Hey! Its been a while since I ve been around, but I have been reading the board and reflecting life. Still writing a few concepts and networking.
I think you got the beat of story development, Bea! Some things I am a little uncertain about but as we say in french "Vas-y fort!"Plus your rap intro is hillarious! Word!If you want some more insight I would bee more than happy to do so. I even feel like picking up where I left off with my HD reunion speck script. I have been so busy in the last year. Mostly partying, but now I feel my muse starting to come back. Ihope you are doing well..take care..Uric Richard
