WHY DID THEY EDIT CERTAIN EPISODES???

"This, in my opinion, is the best season of Happy Days. The writing was outstanding and Henry Winkler was at his peak. THIS is the season that should have ranked as the #1 show on television (it finished at #11, season four is the one that reached the top). There is one problem with the DVD though. Certain episodes (very few...I think) are edited. One of my all-time favorite scenes is missing. It is the end tag of the episode titled "Fonzie's New Friend". This is where Fonzie does the limbo. But it's gone....why? I also noticed a couple of edits here and there on one or two other episodes. The sad thing is that this is probably the only form these episodes will ever be released in. Yet, we won't ever be able to see certain parts of some episodes. Sad.
On a lighter note, I recently had the opportunity to see the Happy Days house when I was in Hollywood. Of course this was just used for the exterior shots, but it hasn't changed much. If you're ever out there and you're interested in seeing it, it's easy to find. I can't give you the house address here (especially since people actually live there) but it's easy to research on the internet."

"Once again Paramount has dropped the ball on the Happy Days series! After ruining season 2, Paramount has put together another low quailty DVD set and to make matters worse, some episodes are edited and missing their classic tag scenes! This is an insult to fans and to this show. Whats next?... editing out Howard Cunningham offering Richie a 'Lifesaver'? or Leather Tuscadero's (Suzie Quatro) songs?! Although this show went way down hill in the later years, at this time is was still fairly entertaining even if not nearly as good as the first two seasons. There are a few bright spots in this season, but the series was never the same after they went to a live audience and "The Fonz" became the focus of the show. Like season 2, I will skip buying this garbage because of lack of care. Too bad for fans :-(........."
The music is all there!

"I was suprised to see that the music was all there, even though the back of the box says that the music has been changed. Not as good as the first 2 seasons because they filmed before a live audience, but it's still early Happy Days!"
Better than expected

"I never write reviews or participate in leaving comments but i was compelled to considering i waited so long to buy the happy days 3 seasons available because of the negatives everyone mentions , and yes the seasons 2 & 3 are packaged differently from season 1 and apparantly
the fans that know the episodes well notice a scene edited here or there and certain music couldnt be used because of the expense to paramount but now that currently 45 bucks buys all 3 new with free shipping i would recommend these. I know dvd sets can be made much nicer with better packaging and extras like bloopers , commentery & interviews and its good to know ahead to expect all your gonna get are the episodes but they are clean, great quality , and have nice menus, also just the fact that you get the full picture without all the logos and junk you get if you record the shows off tv. I would hope they get season 4 released soon and I want to add now in recent years nick at nite has self destructed & tv land has ventured into reality tv giving replacement to the great classics like happy days and well on its way to becoming another channal to flip past making the great tv series dvds more important now than ever before. I recommend these dvd's even with the negatives that are true but holding out for better dvds aint an option. life is short paramount...get em released !"
