4 thoughts on “When Did Happy Days Jump the Shark?

  1. I would say HD jumped the shark either when Fonsie moved in with the Cunninghams or Chachi joined the show, whichever came first. Chachi was enough to drive me away from the show.

  2. As a kid, I loved the “Pump Your Blood” episode. For me–even back then–it happened in Season 7 when Chachi burned down Arnold’s. The new set was terrible–we traded a 50s diner for something that looked more like a fern bar combined with my grandpa’s den. No, thanks.

  3. Arnold’s burning down is just as good of a spot to choose, honestly. Just around that Season 6/7 point is when the show just went off the tracks. Season 8 and 9 were no different than 6/7, and then 10 was a dumpster fire.
