Can you tell the difference between the first and last episodes of Happy Days?

They aired in different decades with a few different actors, but the premiere and finale might be harder to tell apart than you think!

Like many pilots, the first episode of Happy Days was a little different than the eventual hit show that went on to air for eleven seasons. But the classic sitcom’s great characters and nostalgic spirit were there from the start.

The finale came a decade later and tied things up nicely with Mr. C’s speech at Joanie and Chachi’s wedding. Or at least, that’s what was supposed to happen. Because of the winter Olympics in 1984, the network still had a few unseen episodes it aired after the intended final installment.

This quiz involves the very first and very last episodes ever aired on TV. How well do you know the beginning and end of Happy Days? Try your luck below!

6 for 10.
The first 4 seasons were much better than the later seasons. The show literally "jumped the
shark" in season 5. That saying was coined when Fonzie water skied over a shark in a moment
beyond embarrassing, it's hard to believe any adults were involved in the making of that episode.
I heard Chuck Cunningham went on the lam with Davey Gillis(Darryl Hickman), Jemima
Boone(Veronica Cartwright) and Eugene Barkley(Charles Briles).
I heard that Chuck Cunningham
Joined the Circus
I heard that Eugene Belvin Denis Mandel on HAPPY Days and Eugene Barkley
Charles Briles on Big Valley
And Eugene Bradford John
DeLsncy and Eugene the Jeep from Popeye Cartoons all went on the lam and
Started called The
DeLancey)Was on Days of
Our Lives.

Got them all right !!! I Liked the first 2 seasons but then the show went down hill
They Made the Fonzie the main Character
Who could do no wrong A Superman
They could of easy stay on track like the first 2 seasons so much could of been done !!
I watch it for the Memories Of the 50’ oh and Remember it really took off after The movie America Graffiti

Last episode last had cliff hangers like what happened to Ritchie first son and what ever happened with Loribeth’s second kid. Also why was only Joanie and Ritchie mentioned as the Cunningham’s children.
Howard and Marion Cunningham
Had 3 children on Happy Days:
Chuck Richie and Joanie .
The writers of the last episode of Happy Days and GARRY Marshall were dumb writing the
Script for the last episode of Happy Days called Passages
Where Joanie and Chachi got.married Chuck Cunningham
WAS on Happy Days and thos lines where Howard Cunningham says that BOTH of
My children are married now
And Marion and I have had the
Joy of raising 2 wonderful kids
Instead of saying 3 wonderful
IN TV HISTORY.Everyone "Forgot"
About Chuck Cunningham in the
Last Episode of Happy Days
EXCEPT the fans and viewers
Of Happy Days.
Chuck Cunningham 1 Gavan O Herlihy)OR Chuck Cunningham 2
Randolph Roberts and Spike
Danny Butch and BAG ZOMBROSKI (Neil J Schwartz)
And Moose (Barry Greenberg)
And Eugene Belvin (Denis Mandel) and Melvin Belvin (Scott
Bernstein) should have all been
Invited to the wedding of
Joanie and Chachi.

In my defense, I lost interest after Chuck disappeared.
I was diapointed when
Chuck Cunningham 1
Gavan O Herlihy
Chuck Cunningham 2
Randolph Roberts
Neil J Schwartz
And Moose
Barry Greenberg
All Vanished From Happy Days
With no explanation.
Eugene Belvin (Denis Mandel)
Vanished after the Happy Days
Episode Tell Tell Tart and
Melvin Belvin (Scott Bernstein)
Vanished after the Happy Days
Episode I Drink Therefore I Am.
Daphne played by Hillary Horan
Played the drums in Richie's
Band after BAG and STICKS played the drums in Richie's band and Daphne played the
Drums in Richie's band right
Before Chachi played the drums in Richie's band.
Chuck Cunningham and
Bag ZOMBROSKI from The Demons Club were Great Happy Days Characters who Disappeared from Happy Days.
The Character Bag ZOMBROSKI
(Neil J Schwartz) was very similar to the Character of
Wally Plumstead (Skip Young)
On THE ADVENTURES of Ozzie and Harriet .Bag ZOMBROSKI and Wally Plumstead were both
Practical Jokers on Happy Days and Ozzie and Harriet
The writers of Happy Days should have had Chuck Cunningham and Bag ZOMBROSKI in ALL of the
Happy Days episodes.
The writers of Happy Days should have given BAG a girlfriend like Wally Plumstead had a girlfriend named Ginger played by Charlene Salerno.
Gavan O Herlihy and Randolph Roberts both did an awesome job playing Chuck Cunningham.
Ralph Malph (Donny Most)
Were both great Practical Jokers
Just like Wally Plumstead Skip Young on Ozzie and Harriet.
I also liked Moose Barry Greenberg and Eugene Belvin Denis Mandel and Melvin Belvin Scott Bernstein and Roger Phillips Ted Mcginley .

You got 9 out of 10 - Did you get all these correctamundo or would you rather make a quick getaway? Missed #9. Took an edjucated guess but should have realized it was a trick question. Thank goodness the late seasons episodes are over (they are terrible) and they are starting again tonight with season 1 episode 1. The firt 3 seasons were excellent, after that they ranged from mediocre to terrible.

I was in 6th grade when happy days was a episode on “love American style”(geez I’m old),that was classic nostalgia a girl when out with Richie because his parents had a TV set hers didn’t.It’s hard to believe not all Americans owned a TV set at one time .That’s what bakes this episode so nostalgic.
