"Rock Around the Clock" and "Mona Lisa" were on the Hit Parade...Uncle Miltie was a household word...people held each other while dancing...the D.A. was a hairstyle...and everybody liked Ike. Those were the days of the 1950's...filled with innocence and the promise of even better days to come. (season 1)
For the first couple seasons Good Times and Happy Days were scheduled at the same time, on Tuesday nights at 8pm EST, so they were in direct competition with each other. Good Times was the champ during the first two years, and Happy Days was slated for cancellation. Then Happy Days was retooled in part to copy some of the strong points of Good Times: Good Times had a flamboyant teen idol ladies man type character at it' s core who used lot of catch phrases ( JJ). So Happy Days decided to copy the same format, pushing Fonzie, its teen idol, into the center of the show, giving him lots of catch phrases to compete with "Dynomite", like "Ayyyy!" and "coolimundo!". The changes worked: Happy Days jumped to number 1 in the ratings, crushing the competition Good Times. See more »
In one episode, the Cunninghams are on their way to the movies. When Ralph asks them what they are going to see Joanie tells him they are going to see Psycho. However, the episode is set in 1957, three years before the film premiered. See more »
[watching a Chicago Bears football game in 1956]
That Bears quarterback is no good. He's washed up. He's 30.
That's ridiculous. George Blanda still has a few more good years left.

I guess I'm like most people. The first couple of years of Happy Days were terrific but then things went downhill. The show shouldn't have made Fonzie into such an unbelievable character. In the first couple of seasons he was just kind of a greaseball who was on the outskirts then they made him into some kind of superhuman character who could do no wrong. It took away any semblance of reality. Also whatever happened to Chuck (the older brother). If they wanted to get rid of him they should have come up with some kind of excuse instead of just forgetting about him.
