Critic Reviews for Happy Days Season 1

As for "The Happy Days," it will, at least, appeal to some young people, and it's not long enough to get too upset about.

No-one's ever done it quite like Happy Days' Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli, aka The Fonz...the smooth biker is arguably one of the coolest characters ever to grace the TV screen and definitely one of the most popular.

This show has always been perfect for family viewing...

But the show endures-in our hearts and on our late-night TV blocks-all these years because of its endearing innocence, whether from Marion Cunningham or her kids Richie and Joanie.

The differences between the episodes in the series' first and best season and what came later are legion.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Winkler epitomized unforced studliness for a generation, but he never ignored his character's underlying sad, even pathetic qualities.
