The Cunningham family live through the 1950s with help and guidance from the lovable and almost superhuman greaser, Fonzie.
Many fans agree that the show's quality deteriorated after the three-part season 5 opener, "Hollywood", where Fonzie jumps a shark while water-skiing. Today, when a show takes a sharp drop in quality, has strayed from its original premise beyond the point of no return, or has writers insert desperate attempts for ratings, it's said to have "jumped the shark".

In the pilot episode, the diner the characters attend is called Arthur's. In all subsequent episodes, the name has changed to Arnold's.
Two versions of the episode that introduced Robin Williams as Mork from Ork were broadcast. Initally, the episode ended with Ritchie waking up from a dream and seeing Robin Williams as an earthling. When the episode was rerun, this was replaced by a scene tying the episode into the new "Mork and Mindy" (1978) TV series. Most syndicated prints do not have the Mork and Mindy ending.
