Good evening, people! It's me again, and I just wanna send my 45th anniversary shout-out to another old TV show I grew up watching as a kid which debuted on this day in 1974. Happy Days is a TV sitcom that aired from Jan. 15, 1974 to Sept. 24, 1984 on ABC, with a total of 255 half-hour episodes spanning 11 episodes. Created by Garry Marshall, the series presented one of the most successful shows in the 1970s, and idealized vision of life in from the mid-1950s to mid-1960s Midwestern US., and starred Henry Winkler, Ron Howard, Marian Ross, Erin Moran, Anson Williams, Donny Most, Scott Baio, Al Molinaro, and Tom Bosley. This show became one of the biggest hits in TV history and heavily influenced the TV style of its time. The series began as an unsold plot starring Howard, Ross, and Williams, which aired in 1972 as a segment entitled "Love and the Television Set" (later retitled "Love and the Happy Days" for syndication) on ABC's anthology show Love, American Style. Based on the plot, director George Lucas cast Howard as a lead star in the 1973 film American Graffiti, causing ABC to take a renewed interest in the plot. The 1st 2 seasons of Happy Days focused on the experiences and dilemmas of "innocent teenager" Richie Cunningham, his family, and his high school friends attempting to "honestly depict a wistful look back at adolescence". Initially a moderate hit, the series' ratings began to fall during its 2nd season causing Marshall to retool it emphasizing broad comedy and spotlighting the previously minor character Fonzie, a "cool" biker and high school dropout. Following these changes Happy Days became the #1 TV program in 1976-1977, Fonzie became one of the merchandised characters in the 1970s, which made Winkler a major star. The series also spawned a number of spin-offs including hit shows like Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy .

Boleh di hina, tapi lebih boleh lagi kalau di sayang. Eaaa — Nunu circa 2009 with a cutie-pie face. Lol #10yearchallenge#10yearschallenge#masihlugu 🤪 (kala itu anak ini sangat doyan foto lewat camera laptop). Ga ada begitu banyak perubahan sih kalau gua rasa, cuma bedanya, dulu hidup tanpa beban (beban cuma PR dari sekolah doang), nah kalau sekarang banyak beban hidup. Wkwkwkwk

In the Tenderloin gutter, we were Crack City rockin'
Yeah, when we were alive, we were wicked & young
With the good times we had & the songs that we sung" -Leftover Crack
