Since Happy Days on DVD is still on hiatus, though (along with the final season of Mork & Mindy; sorry!), it's GREAT to see that the studio is thinking of ways to give the fans whatever they possibly can. There's news today of a new Laverne & Shirley DVD release (please see separate article), and even better is the more direct spin-off show: CBS/Paramount has today announced that Joanie Loves Chachi - The Complete Series will arrive on DVD this February 4th. The show's run consisted of 17 episodes in two seasons (the first season was a mere four episodes!), starring Erin Moran (as "Joanie Cunningham") and Scott Baio along with Al Molinaro as "Al Delvecchio" and Ellen Travolta as "Louisa Arcola Delvecchio" (Chachi's mom, now married to Al). The program aired in 1982, during the ninth and tenth seasons of Happy Days. The DVD set will run 410 minutes, and includes a Gag Reel. Pricing and package art haven't been made available yet, but stay tuned!
