    Happy Days FTW...Lots of wins...This could be (sadly only) a darkhorse for the entire tournament. It's still funny, the cast was amazing, and it still gets replayed so many years later...

    These days are ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurs. Goodbye, gray sky, Hello, blue... I could go on, but there's no need to. The Fonz is a Top 5 character in TV history. That's no joke. The show is great, still funny today, and even at its worst, it could still out perform most of the shows today. I loe this show and if I see it's on, I usually stop and watch it. I don't do that to many shows. Happy Days all the way.

    Did anyone from The Good Life have a religion based off of them? I don't think so. The Fonz wins this matchups alone; simply for his ability to turn on a jukebox. A catchy theme song and a character that produces a cult following is a great formula for success.

    Easily Happy Days. The Fonz lives on as one of the most iconic situation comedy character of all time. The Happy Days had a good cast, some of them are still active 35 years later. I think it also has a shot of winning because it has one of the most known scene in history of television, involving a shark, and a jump over said shark.

    The Fonz is essentially so uncool that he has to hang around with children. That being said, the show was pretty funny, and while I doubt that anyone in this thread has actually seen The Good Life, they are not wrong for having voted against it. It wasn't very good, and was a very old fashioned style of show almost as soon as it began.

    Yeah, going to have to go with Happy Days here. The show is so damn iconic. Henry Winkler still makes cameos on shows and movies, all based on his fame from that show. It was a bit hackneyed for my liking, but what the Hell, it was still funny. And besides, it's impact on television is far more than just about any other show. When television shows "Jump The Shark" It's because Happy Days was the original to do it.

    Ok, not fantastic reasoning there, but still. Good characters who were well developed. Funny situations. And an infectious theme song that made you want to watch the entire show, even if you'd already seen it. Go with Happy Days. I will until they meet up with The Jeffersons
