''Happy Days'' is a [[LongRunners long-running]] Creator/{{ABC}} sitcom created in the '70s and based around [[TheFifties '50s nostalgia]]. Fitting for a show which launched so many [[SpinOff spin-offs]], ''Happy Days'' actually originated as an episode of the GenreAnthology ''Series/LoveAmericanStyle'', but also drew both cast and conceptual elements from the movie ''Film/AmericanGraffiti''. It was something of a flop early on, but gradually became a ratings juggernaut and ended up having as big an impact on television as ''{{Series/Cheers}}'' or ''{{Series/Seinfeld}}''. Early episodes achieved a kind of brilliant, ''Series/FatherKnowsBest'' self-parody, but the show went way longer than it should have, and was ultimately the inspiration for the phrase JumpingTheShark.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: [[TropeNamer The original]]. After being played by three different actors, the third quitter led to Garry Marshall just axing the concept entirely, and one day he ran up the stairs to his room and never returned. A very famous TV example, often subject to LampshadeHanging in other media about the show.
