Love, American Style
Each week, the show featured different stories of romance, usually with a comedic spin. All episodes were unrelated, featuring different characters, stories and locations. The show often featured the same actors, playing different characters many episodes. Because of this format, it's possible to watch the shows in any order since there is no evolving storyline.
The show may be best known for its February 1972 episode "Love and the Happy Days"; that episode was written by Garry Marshall and featured Ron Howard (as Richie), Marion Ross (as Richie's mother), Anson Williams (as Potsie, Richie's friend), among others. It became the pilot for Happy Days. Roles played in the episode by Harold Gould (Howard the father), Susan Neher (Joanie, Richie's sister), and Ric Carrott (Chuck, Richie's brother) were played by other actors in the spinoff.
