The phenomenon of "fan favorites" always seems a bit dubious to me, just another marketing strategy. But CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount recently conducted a Facebook poll on seven of its popular classic programs (Cheers, Happy Days, Frasier, The Odd Couple, Hogan's Heroes, The Honeymooners, and MacGyver) to determine what would be included on these Fan Favorite DVD releases. These are no-frills editions for only the most casual viewer (each of these shows is readily available in complete seasons and/or series editions), so if you already own the previous, and more complete, releases--this really adds nothing to the discussion. These bargain priced entries, therefore, might appeal to newer viewers who wish to sample a program or to someone who just wants a few episodes of their favorite show for those rainy days with nothing better going on.

However, as the number of episodes and which ones are not being provided (as of 2/28/12), I thought I'd give a rundown to the interested parties about what is included on each DVD set.

Happy Days: In Dolby Digital English Mono with English SDH subtitles
(1) All The Way (Season One, Episode 1): The show's premiere gets off to a start with Richie being invited to babysit with his dream girl.
(2) Fonzie Drops In (Season One, Episode 7): Getting Fonzie to come back to high school is more problematic than Richie suspects.
(3) Haunted (Season Two, Episode 6): Richie and Joanie combat their fears of a potentially haunted house.
(4) Guess Who's Coming To Christmas (Season Two, Episode 11): A Christmas story related by the Fonz about when Howard's traditional Christmas plans were upset by a unexpected visitor.
(5) Richie's Flip Side (Season Two, Episode 21): Richie gets a gig as a local disc jockey and is seduced by the fame.
(6) Fonzie Moves In (Season Three, Episode 1): Fonzie takes the attic apartment at the Cunningham house and Howard is apoplectic.
(7) The Motorcycle (Season Three, Episode 2): The Cunninghams try to keep Fonzie busy so he doesn't lose his head revenging his vandalized bike.
(8) They Call It Potsie Love (Season Three, Episode 13): Joanie's crushing on Potsie!

With eleven seasons to choose from, it's interesting to note that these were all from the first three! I grew up with "Happy Days" and, as a series, it had its ups and downs. This is a nice way to introduce yourself to the show if you haven't seen it, but it is much better in context and complete (especially these early seasons when the show was in its stride). KGHarris, 2/12.

If you have the first 4 available seasons you dont need this. I am patiently waiting for the remaining seasons. Wish they would get off their butts and release the remainings seasons.

Bought this as a Christmas present for a relative; however, I remember the series for TV. Now that says something in it self that I remember and not only that but the individual characters. If you enjoy older TV, this would be a series to add to your collection.

We bought seasons 1-4 for Christmas and just finished the last episode of Season 4. Its been fun introducing our 15 year old daughter to a show my wife and I grew up with and loved. Now we have her hooked on it too. The DVD's are well made and presented nicely. I have just one question..Where are the rest of the seasons?? Please release season 5 - 11 !!!

My daughter LOVES Happy Days. I got this set for her for her birthday, and now she giggles and blushes every time the Fonz appears. PLUS.... Did you know they talk about and actually say the word SEX in the pilot! OMG I laughed so hard. Almost as hard as Fonzies hair. Just wait until you see Mr. C. in a hot steamy bathroom discussing sex with his son.
