This spin-off of Happy Days (1974) follows Chachi Arcola as he moves out and tries to succeed on his own with a rock band and a music career. In between holding down a job and keeping his girlfriend, Joanie Cunningham, happy, he must also deal with the often unwanted, but sometimes needed, advice and interference from his friends, relatives and neighbors.

Given the moderate to conservative nature of the Cunningham family it's doubtful that the would have approved of their single daughter moving away with a man, regardless of who he was, without the two being married. While this may have been acceptable in the 1980s era when it was filmed, it would have been viewed as completely inappropriate in the early 1960s setting of the series. See more »
I have always been a fan of Happy Days & Joanie Loves Chachi. I think Scott & Erin's singing on JLC was pretty good. I especially enjoyed the opening with them singing "You Look At Me". They were perfect together. They had the right chemistry and it just worked! You could tell they were comfortable working with one another. Too bad the show got canceled! Even after all these years, I still enjoy all the episodes.
I think they should plan a 'reunion show' (not reunion special). It would be better to watch them 'act' instead of just sitting around and looking at old clips.
Also, the last episode of HD where Joanie & Chachi got married, they should have had them dance since that was Joanie's favorite part of the wedding... where the bride & groom have their first dance.
