“Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”
—MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., American civil rights activist
Marge: I always get sick the night before I go on a trip.
Linda: So why don’t you leave a day earlier?

Happy Days debuted on ABC on this day in 1974. One of its legacies: spin-offs.

* In a 1976 episode, Richie and Potsie double-dated some rough-around-the-edges friends of Fonzie’s named Laverne and Shirley—who were immediately transplanted into Laverne & Shirley.

* In February 1977, Happy Days introduced Nancy Blansky, Howard’s cousin who was a landlady for a group of Las Vegas showgirls. That fall, Walker starred in the spin-off Blansky’s Beauties.

* An alien named Mork appeared on a 1978 episode to launch the Mork & Mindy.

* Chachi met his guardian angel, Random, in a 1979 Happy Days episode. That same month, Out of the Blue, about Random, debuted.

* Chachi got his own spin-off in 1982, along with Richie’s younger sister Joanie: Joanie Loves Chachi.

Iceland enforces a TV-free day every Tuesday to encourage family interaction.
