Guess Who's Coming to Visit
31 May 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The template for American Graffiti is much in evidence in the early episodes of Happy Days.

There is the abundance of 1950s music and Fonzie takes up a challenge for a late night drag race after Richie is seen admiring the noise of someone else's engine and girl.

Richie and the boys have to sneak out late at night to watch the race. However Howard gets word and shows up as well.

Just as the race is to begin, police cars also turn up and the see Howard with the starting flag. Everyone is taken down in the station.

The sarcastic police chief has fun with Howard and he is already familiar with Fonzie.

An easy likable episode, hot on nostalgia and a sweet ending with the fat boy dancing with a plump girl in the diner.
