Most Cringe Worthy Moments ???







SAVE FERRIS

Honestly there are too many to list, but here's a few:

- The gang singing and dancing to 'Pumps your blood' after Potsie failed his biology test
- that 3 part episode where they all go to a ranch, especially the scenes where Fonz and Richie spontaneously start doing choreographed line (?) dancing and an obvious stunt double pretends to be Joanie in a runaway wagon
- shark jump in a leather jacket
- The flamboyant 'tough, street' gangs who showed up regularly, particularly the gang who tried to force Joanie to make out with all of them until Fonzie and the Big Ragoo showed up and defeated them via ballet dance
- 'I found my thrrillll' - STFU
- Fonzie throwing a depressed dog a party (complete with dog-food cake) in Arnold's -yah real coooool

Excellent rundown kaydie-- I was going to say "I found my thrillll" for sure. Who the bleep would sing that in front of their parents???

the shark jump

Wasn't there an episode where they encounter a mad scientist in a castle for some reason and he transfers Fonzi's "cool" from Fonzi to the monster he created? That might qualify.

It's been decades, so my memory of the episode might not be 100 percent.

reply

That episode where Pinky Tuscadero took a shotgun and blasted away at that car when its car alarm wouldn't stop.

reply

When Fonzie got his butt kicked by Tom Hanks.

any episode after the first season

Suzi Quatro dressed in the most tacky outfits imaginable.

Whatever was her manager at the time was trying to get her lots of publicity and fast--there was no MTV until early 1980's and cable was very expensive.

And I am sure that getting on American Bandstand posed challenges of its own--AB was declining re popularity bc of MTV's rise. MTV would not have a 'heavy metal' show until later. this is where she would have been good!!

But a show which was (originally supposed to be about 1950s/1960s Wisconsin also was not right. Eventually they got the hint and dropped her as a character.

Would have ironically been so much more convincing if Quatro was allowed to dress like she did off camera (all black) But they tried to make her look 'safe' for families and children. She needed to have been on another show any other show. This was the wrong series for her.

Any time Ritchie's parents would hang out with all those teen-agers as if they were all friends.

I remember one episode when Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham were at some type of social gathering with Ritchie and his friends. They were always the only parents at events like that. What parents socialize with their teen-ager and his friends?

Maybe my problem is that I simply couldn't stand Marion Cunningham. The character just grated on my nerves. I could only take her in small doses.

Interesting PJ. You’re the first person that I’ve ever heard say this. It would be akin to someone referring to June Cleaver as a total bitch :D

And while we’re at it, what about that total A-hole Mr Rogers! :D

Yes, I’m just funnin ya :D

reply

LOL Yeah, I get it. But at least June Cleaver knew her place and stayed in the kitchen...ha, ha. She didn't try to befriend her kids' friends and she knew Eddie Haskell (the late wonderful Ken Osmond) was a total suck up.

When Marion hung out with the teens, it didn't make her look cool, just clueless.

But I just found her syrupy sweetness and singsongy voice a real burr under my saddle! Just one of those sitcom characters I could never take to. Did I mention though that I loved Ralph Malph?

Hey PJ. Guess who was on coast to coast am last night? None other than Ralph himself. Apparently he caught a UFO on film. I would have let you know, but I didn’t know until late last night. If you get this message soon enough, they usually play the previous evening’s episode, prior to the main episode, on most affiliates.

I always thought that it was Ritchie that channeled the little green fellows, but apparently Ralph’s got the touch as well :D
