This got even worse when Scott Baio became much more open about his extreme right-wing political stance in 2016, as one of the few Hollywood celebrities to openly endorse Donald Trump during his presidential campaign.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: Joannie and Chachi's romance was irrevocably ruined after Scott Baio's heartlessly cruel statement that Erin Moran deserved her early death because of her drug addictions.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Fonzie's been using "Sit on It!" for years, to great reaction. When ''Marion'' of all people uses it on ''him'', the reaction from the crowd and Fonzie himself was priceless.

* SeasonalRot: It started out as a very cool, low-key show, then became the ideal version of a standard sitcom with a StudioAudience. It'd started getting worse (the Trope-Named Shark-Jump) even before Richie left, but only got worse after that. Fonzie got a temporary full-time girlfriend for one season, and things got increasingly worse with gimmicks and nonsense until a thankfully fantastic final episode.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: According to Garry Marshall, "Richie Almost Dies" was written for this reason. He explained that he was contacted by counselors working with abused children who watched the show. These kids refused to cry and kept their emotions under wraps, so Marshall wanted to have Fonzie go through an emotional breakdown in order to show these kids that it was okay to cry.

* {{Squick}}: In "The Cunningham Caper", Joanie talking about barf bags. Also, all the bad meat in the liver episode. Squicked out Fonzie too.

* HilariousInHindsight: In one episode, a martial arts class is taught by Arnold, played by Pat Morita. Happily, [[Film/TheKarateKid Daniel-San]] was a better student than [[ButtMonkey Richie]].

* FranchiseOriginalSin: The moment of vertical ascension over an aquatic carnivorous animal is considered merely the point where Fonzie's flanderizing into a superhuman and the lost of the 1950s motif reached its zenith. Both those things had subtly been going on as the seasonal rot kicked in.
