Thirty years ago, in the 80s, a TV sitcom came to our homes. It was a big hit. It was one of my all time favourite shows. It was Happy Days.
From the opening credits with the rock and roll theme song to the entrance of Fonzie  and his Ayyyyyyy! to the epitome of the nerd, Richie (played by one of today's top rated movie directors Ron Howard) and to the cuddly Joanie (Erin Moran). This was TV at its best.
Created by Garry Marshall, the series was like an off-shoot of George Lucas's American Graffiti. It brought back 50s fashion and lingo back into mainstream thought.It ran for many seasons and three years ago, a special re-union show was made with the original cast.
Below is the show. I'm sure those who remember Happy Days would appreciate this re-union special - Ayyyyyyy!
(The special is two hours long and can be found on Youtube. Below are excerpts from the special)
