Happy Days (1974-1984)

1950's nostalgia with Richie, Fonzie and the gang.  Happy Days ran an impressive eleven seasons and had several spin-offs.  The infamous episode where Fonzie water skis and jumps over a contained shark is where the appropriately phrased "jumping the shark" originated, that moment when a series falls into decline.  Despite that episode, Happy Days still ran another six seasons.

Address: 565 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

Here's Hollywood magic for you: Looking at this house, you'd think it's somewhere in flyover country.  In reality, it's off a seedy section of Melrose Avenue where a check cashing place stood on the corner.
