Never took the leather jacket off the whole time...
A little backstory is that the idea for the show came from Henry Winkler’s (Fonz) dad. Since Winkler was a good water skier he thought it would be a cool idea.
This episode occured in the middle of season 5 though, which means Happy Days stayed #1 for SIX years after “jumping the shark.”
Arrested Development fans may realize that Winkler is the only actor that jumped the shark twice. In a bit for Arrested Development, a shark was lying on a dock and Winkler’s character had to jump over it.
