Trivia

Love American Style spun off Happy Days, which itself spun off Fonz and the Happy Days Gang. If you look at the parent show, Love American Style, a modern rom com anthology program about dating and relationships in the 60s and early 70s, and the spinoff, Fonz and the Happy Days Gang, a sci fi cartoon which featured all manners of flying saucers, monsters and aliens in every episode, the difference between the two is staggering.

The end of my childhood
11 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With Boy Scout meetings getting over at 9:30 during Fridays from age 11-16(1967-1972) I missed the Partridge Family, Wild Wild West, Room 222, and Brady Bunch during their original runs(have seen most Brady Bunchs since but not the others which were never rerun fixtures). However, I remember walking into house on Friday night to see a big American Flag, Fireworks, and a pleasant song and would sit down to watch not knowing anything about Love, sex, girls etc. I did not mind it, and would love to go back to see now what I saw then, and would like to envision what my 14 year old head was thinking about all the changes that were to come over my life in the next 20 years. Bravo Love American style and I always love that "Love and the Happy Day" story where the combination of American Graffiti(great movie) and Grease combined to resurrect this little short into a 10 year TV show.
