Did You Know?


Because of the similar interior of the Time Machine, there have been reports that this series was originally meant to be an animated spin-off of Doctor Who (1963), but that William Hanna and Joseph Barbera were unable to obtain the rights. However, show developer Duane Poole has stated that this is untrue. The series was always meant to be a Happy Days spin-off. See more »

basically Happy Days for kids
16 February 2009 | by justiceforall272See all my reviews

Fonzie, Richie, Ralph, Mr Cool (Fonzie's dog) and a girl from the future named Cupcake, get lost in her time machine. The show is all about them trying to get back to 1957 Milwaukee. Every episode has the group landing at some different period in time and meeting a girl that needs their help. They also find lots of trouble as the adventure begins. Fonzie is the hero (naturally) of the show and all the rest act just scared and stupid. Cupcake has magic powers which never work out they way she, or the others, wants. Mr Cool is much like a Scooby Doo kind of a character that tries to copy Fonzie with not so good results.

This series has been unfairly called one of the worst, if not the worst, cartoons of all time. This is totally wrong. It was a LOT of fun. I watched it on regular basis when it came out in the fall of 1980 and it became one of my favorite Saturday morning shows. Finally there was a Happy Days just for kids! Yes it could be very stupid, but cartoons like this are meant to be stupid in order to be fun. It was not only entertaining in a humorous way but also gave a small lesson in history for the young ones. Note I said small. And seriously, what kid doesn't find time travel interesting? I sure did.

It needs to be remembered that this was a show for kids. I think the new generation could enjoy it as much as I did.
