For 10 years, Happy Days was must-see TV for the whole family. Running from 1974 to 1984, the series became famous for ‘jumping the shark’ which quickly became a term that was used in the entertainment world for any show that had stayed past its prime. If you were a fan of the show, you know that when Arthur Fonzarelli literally tried to jump a shark on a set of waterskis, the show had officially reached its peak.
You can still catch Happy Days on TV, making it one of the longest-running shows in history. But where is everyone today?
This Was Scott Baio Back Then
You probably remember Scott Baio as Charles ‘Chachi’ Arcola, who was Fonzie’s younger cousin starting in season 5. He quickly became a regular on the show, and fans seemed to love him. In fact, Baio would receive plenty of fan mail for his character, sometimes up to 5,000 letters a week!
Chachi was an aspiring musician and his love interest with Joanie Cunningham was a topic for many of the later episodes of the show. In fact, the two would eventually get married.
