1980s / Joanie Loves Chachi
Joanie Loves Chachi was a sitcom spun off from Happy Days in March 1982. Happy Days was already well in decline by that point, so ABC was somewhat desperate to milk any residual life from the romance of Joanie Cunningham and Chachi Arcola. The premise of this show was that Joanie and Chachi uproot from Milwaukee to form a rock band in Chicago. They move in with Chachi's mother, Louisa, who had recently married Al Delvecchio--the proprietor of Arnold's in Milwaukee! Joanie Loves Chachi ran for four weeks in the spring of 1982 as a "tryout sitcom" and finished in the top seven shows. (Critics point out it ran against very weak rerun opposition on the other networks.) However, when Joanie Loves Chachi returned as a full sitcom in ABC's fall lineup for 1982, it quickly dropped to a dismal 68th spot in the ratings. No further new shows were aired after December 1982, although reruns occasionally appeared on ABC until Spetember 1983. Of course, Joanie, Chachi and Al all curiously returned to Milwaukee and the cast of Happy Days to finish its final season. Here is the opening sequence of Joanie Loves Chachi--which ran for nearly two minutes!
