Widower Sheriff Andy and his son Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry NC. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney.
Richie Cunningham and his friend Potsie face life at Jefferson High in Milwaukee Wisconsin in the 1950s. Originally fifth-billed Fonzie moved up steadily, finally into first billing in 1980, as the thumbs-up, "Heyyy!" biker increased his own and show's popularity. Lots of changes over time as kids come and go, new series spin off, Richie and pals go to college then the army. Even marriage. Written by

Pinky and her TV sister Leather's name Tuscadero was taken from the real-life town of Atascadero, in California. Leather was played by singer/bass guitarist Suzi Quatro, who'd achieved pop stardom in England and wanted to bring her career back to America. See more »

[Marion and Fonzie have been practicing in secret to enter a ballroom dance contest - the family has caught them and offered to take Marion home]
Wait a minute. I don't understand something here. I practice all week until I have to limp home and soak my feet. I spend 18 dollars and fifty cents on a monkey suit. Two nerds come to room, lock me in my bathroom and start calling names. Sherlock Holmes here chases me and starts yelling at me. Cunningham threatens me with physical violence, Shortcake ...

I love this show. When this show first came out i wasn't even around yet, ( Early 1970s????? not sure) so i get to see it on nick at nite and i have to say I'm addicted. I love the 50s and I've always liked Fonzie. He was cool in so many different ways. He started out tough, but deep downside he was a still a kid at heart.He really did care about people. He just showed it in his own...cool way.. I'm also dying to know what happened to Chuck. t he "older cunningham" they've shouldve really done something about that. like did he go off to war and never come back? did he go to college? did he get in trouble and get sent away? did he get married and leave? I noticed in the later years Mrs C. only mentioned " we raised 2 good children Howard" 2 children??
And what happened to Fonzie's girlfriend and her little Girl? i wouldve like to see those two get married, i thought fonzie was so good with that precious little girl. Every show toward the end gets alittle stagnant. After all the writers can only write so much and you have remember that the things that are on t.v. now could never be mentioned then. And as the characters grew with the times...then new characters had to be introduced to keep the show going. i was never a big Joanie fan, but i did cry at her wedding. ( okay i always cry at weddings..even t.v. weddings) Mrs. C was my favorite t.v. mom. especially in the later years, she was so funny and so loving at the same time. i think she was more realistic than Mrs. Beaver ANYDAY. ( okay tell me who actually VACCUMMED THE HOUSE IN THEIR PEARLS? no mother i know ever dressed up to clean house!! )Yes i love old t.v shows.. I'm hooked on Nick at Nite shows....) and don't get me started on the theme songs, i drive my friends crazy lol.
