Charles's last name is never mentioned. In fact, at times the writers had to go out of their way to avoid mentioning his, or his mother's surname. This lead people to think that Scott Baio was once again playing the role of Charles Arcola aka "Chachi" from Happy Days (1974) and Joanie Loves Chachi (1982). Ellen Travolta, played Scott Baio's mother on all three series. On Charles in Charge (1984) her name was Lillian and on the previous two series she was Louisa Arcola-Delvecchio. See more »
[Charles finds Douglas at work with a skateboard]
... Doug, do you need help tightening those wheels?
I'm not tightening them; I'm loosening them.
That's very dangerous!
I hope so; this is Jason's skateboard. He used my baseball glove to clean his fish tank! He's gotta be taught a lesson.
[confiscating the skateboard]
That's not a crime punishable by death.

I rented this series for my 11 year old daughter to watch with me,as I had loved it when I was a kid and it was on first-run. I'm happy to say that she loves it, too. It's a wholesome show for kids to watch that is amusing and has a good moral to every show. I find it very refreshing to watch, and enjoy it myself, even after all these years. It's hard to find shows for my daughter to watch that aren't filled with sexual references, even when the show is supposed to be aimed at kids. Yes, the show is dated a bit, but if you're looking for a fun, entertaining, wholesome show for your kids to watch that hasn't been shown to rerun death already on TV, this is the show for you.
