Happy Days was pretty good in the first season before it was shot in front of live audience. I didn't watch it much after that. My personality was more in line with sitcoms like The Bob Newhart Show during that period. Classic deadpan satire. Great ensemble cast.

Comedy is the most difficult genre to pull off.

Example of Happy Days in the first season. It was intended to feel more like the very successful "American Graffiti" film in the way it was shot, the writing, and the music. Not nearly as good, but that was the attempt.

 

 

 

 

 

It did get a little silly towards the end with Fonzie having his office in the bathroom.

The Show does have a special place in my heart.

The Cunningham house is actually here in SoCal, not in Milwaukee.

Cool pics Kipper, are they your personal ones you’ve taken?

No, never.  Just images I find while browsing google. Things that catch my eye and worthy to be shared.

El Camino side swipe.

Even with damage like that, an El Camino of that vintage would be a restorers dream find.

My uncle had the same year in the Impala station wagon.  But not the two door model, which are insanely sought after now.  Worst thing about many of these cars I see are the STUPID rims guys put on them. Yeah, I get lowering, and maybe some paint schemes. But putting 26 inch rims on anything makes it look dumb. Cars like those were classic as designed.

I know. New model rims are so feckin' ugly and look ridiculous.

I always wanted a '60 El Camino with a 409 and 4 speed, candy apple red.
