Happy Days reunion complete with Chuck....

The Chuck Stops Here ''Happy Days'' gang will reunite. The entire cast will gather for 30th-anniversary reunion special, including the two actors who played Chuck, Richie's forgotten older brother by Gary Susman. It's one of the enduring mysteries of 1970s TV: What ever happened to Chuck Cunningham? The older brother of Richie and Joanie, he could be seen occasionally during the earliest episodes of Happy Days, usually carrying a basketball. Apparently, the character was such an afterthought that no one noticed when the role was recast, and no one mourned him when he inexplicably vanished from the family after the first season. But now, 30 years later, Chuck Cunningham is finally resurfacing. Chuck will live again in The Happy Days 30, a two-hour reunion special marking the three-decade anniversary of the debut of the 1974-84 ABC sitcom. Variety reports that the special, to be coproduced by Henry ''The Fonz'' Winkler himself, will reunite the entire cast, including Winkler, Ron Howard (Richie), Erin Moran (Joanie), Tom Bosley (Mr. C), Marion Ross (Mrs. C), Anson Williams (Potsie), Don Most (Ralph), Pat Morita (Arnold), Scott Baio (Chachi), Cathy Silvers (Jenny Piccalo), and the two actors who played Chuck: Gavin O'Herlihy and Randolph Roberts. Even Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, who created the spinoff characters of Laverne and Shirley on Happy Days, will be there. Production begins this weekend with the revival of an off-camera Happy Days tradition, a cast softball game, which will be filmed for the reunion show. ABC hasn't set an airdate for the special, but it could air as soon as November's ratings sweeps period. But what about Al?

Is this going to be an actual show or just the cast getting together?? If it is an actual show...it would have to be set in the 80's.

Al doesn't even do the frozen dinner commercials anymore.

What would be really funny is if O'Herlihy is there for the first ten minutes, Roberts is there is there for the next ten, and then nobody notices their absence afterward.

Bring on Suzi Quatro!! She's still active (toured Australia recently, I hear). p.s. Did Lenny & Squiggy first appear on HD or is that just the product of my sick imagination?

I hope this isn't just another cast member rememberance show filled with clips....both HAPPY DAYS and LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY have already done that. They should do it in character and it should be set around 1986!

It sounds like a rememberances show, but what would be funny is if they filmed a two or three minute scene "in character" set in 1983 or whatever that explained whatever happened to Chuck. "He's finally being executed for all of those sex slayings that the family found too troubling to ever talk about."

I thought they should set it in the future and in space. I would have sworn that at some point there was in fact a cartoon that was set in space with the Happy Days gang but the only cartoon that they made was this one.
Apparently they almost did a Fonzie/Scooby Doo cartoon but it never got on the air

A girl from the future and time travel provided at least one future episode, I think. The Partridge Family had an animated series set in the future.

>Apparently, the character was such an afterthought that no one noticed when the role was recast This is the first I've heard of that.

I like the idea of an "in character" reunion. A plausible scenario would be Howard and Marion's 50th Wedding Anniversary and the whole gang reunites to celebrate. This could be like the Dick Van Dyke reunion, remembrances done "in character". The time period would have to be in the mid 80s as Steve Phillips said. Al Molinaro will be missed. He was always a dependable character actor and was especially good as Murray the policeman on ODD COUPLE. Hopefully his non appearance is due to his wishes rather than being prohibited by poor health. Steve

Cool! Pat Morita is participating!

They should remake the "Hollywood" episode, but this time The Fonz should Refuse to Jump the Shark! thus changing not only the history of this show, but perhaps all TV shows for all time. Sort of a Back to the Future kinda thing.
