I expected a shark jumping out of the water given how apparently unbelievable this was.

I also can't believe that after Henry Winkler asked for a water skiing scene this was the best they came up with.

I’m a little confused. Was the shark contained in a limited space that he had to jump or was it just swimming through the water freely? If it’s the latter then exactly what was so challenging and risky about it? The shark could swim away in every direction and not even be near the spot where he jumps. What if the shark were to have swam towards him? Would he have tripped over its fin or something?

Sean's Myth

Most people probably don't know or remember that two seasons earlier, in a 2-part cliffhanger episode, Fonzie jumped over some garbage cans on his motorcycle. This was right in the middle of the Evel Knievel heyday so the episode got HUGE ratings and is IMO the sole reason for the show's initial success, which not long after began to fade again. So the producers had a wild brainstorm (or goose egg) and the rest is meme history. But it helps to know the backstory since the whole point of jump the shark is to take an original idea that worked at first and then try to top yourself by doing the same thing again but in a slightly different way. Here It gave the fans a case of de ja vu and it just made the people on the show look desperate.

Ok, so after years of hearing the term "jumped the shark" for years, I finally decided to watch this scene. I gotta be honest, it's not even as bad as I pictured. I thought they had Fonzie jumping over a fake shark or something lol. But then again, I still don't have much context because I don't think I've ever even seen a whole episode, let alone consecutive ones. So I still have no point of reference as to how the show declined in quality. But let's talk about Fonzie waterskiing in that damn leather jacket... That was the wackest part to me lol.

It was at that moment that the viewers at home realised that they were no longer watching a film about a group of young friends growing up in the 1950's, but were instead watching a show about losers jumping over sharks wearing skis and leather jackets.

Happy Days was a good show the first 3 seasons but it seems like the 4th season on it got kind of lame. Although it was supposed to be based in the 1950s the actors in it didn't care they wore their hair and clothes right out of the 1970s. Which ironically makes it seem even more dated today.

Oh my god this is so much worse than I imagined. I've heard the term, of course, and after another favorite show of mine should've died, I came here just to see. Besides the terrible idea, could you draw it out more uselessly? Could you have worse dialogue? Could it possibly be lamer than fonzie wearing a leather jacket still while water skiing? Literally the only positive thing I can say about this is the girls looked hot. No wonder this became a trope and colloquialism.

Saying "Happy Days" is a kids show give me the opinion that you watched them as re-runs.
Did you watch the show back in the 70s (when they first aired)?  Are you comparing Happy Days to other more contemporary shows?   It was not considered a kids show.

PS: OK I re-read my post and figure you are trolling my language/post.  The premise of my post was correct...the delivery was kinda silly.

The whole premise of the Hollywood episode (three parts) was monumentally stupid. The story line really didn't fit the show. AND.....Seeing Fonzie wearing his signature jacket on the beach in the middle of the summer jumping a shark (while wearing that jacket)....(Sigh)....JUST Silly/Stupid all mixed together. And the jump was kinda underwhelming for the build up they did.....

It's not that it killed the show immediately. The reason people say that it's the high point of the show is once they jumped the shark they could never top it and ratings never were as high.

As a 70's kid, who lived through this insanity, I can tell ya that this scene for instance, we knew it was horrible, and even kind of knew it was something "special" in a sense, but Fonz was so ingrained in the lexicon by 1977 that we watched with a smile, cheered him on and shook our heads at how ridiculous it was. Kind of the same as watching it today - and realizing how after the first two seasons, Happy Days got REAL bad. Sounds crazy but I really miss the 70's.

Long after Happy Days and The Fonze are long forgotten, the legacy will be this slang or metaphor added to the American English language, primarily by those in politics who fear using "Hail Mary" as to characterize a last ditch effort. So while "jumping the shark" didn't capture audiences for Happy Days as did Jaws in did the day, it did leave an indelible mark in both TV history and linguistics. Ehhhh!!! Did you expect less than that from The Fonze?

I cannot believe you guys aren't getting Ted Cruz's point. He's comparing the Happy Days' producers' efforts to shore up ratings to his competitors efforts to tear him down by bring up this moot point about natural-born citizenship. They are trying to neutralize him to the uninformed (the vast majority). This Happy Days show pulled out all the guns, regardless of whether it made any sense or not, trying to save the show (and the profits) for as long as they could. I sure hope he didn't give us too much credit. His natural-born citizenship is a non-issue, folks, he's got it. We urgently need him as our next President. I love Donald's rhetoric but we really need what Ted Cruz can do.

Lulu, you are likely one of the masses because you jump to conclusions and you can't seem to comprehend the written word.

Cruz is pleased with the reception this "jump the shark" comment got. I just saw a new interview where he proudly repeats it. It's really not relevant, but it's colorful. And many people were intrigued enough to look-up the phrase.
This is a political lesson. It's not the content; it's the delivery. In this case the delivery had a cool phrase (which Cruz didn't come up with, I'm sure).

JOYCE CLEMONS
JOYCE CLEMONS - 5 years ago
+Nehmo Sergheyev The Constitution wouldn't have defined the word "bedbug"; had the Framers had any reason to use the word. They wouldn't have to because all the Framers knew what bedbugs were, and so did the people. Natural Born Citizen is the same. The Framers not only knew what it meant, but had legal references in case anyone (like today's suggestible Americans) might be stupid enough to not know. By all Original Meaning evidence, it meant, at the very least, BORN ON THE SOIL OF THE NATION (or at the very least on a ship of their state, or in a foreign embassy compound, a place under the full control of that sovereign and within which full ligeance is due). Cruz is a Natural Born Citizen of Canada, and a naturalized citizen of the US, not a Natural Born Citizen of the US. You said " common practice in America since the writing of the Constitution defines it as including babies born to a US mother (or even father) while outside of the physical US. That is not true. Those, if they comply with US naturalization law, MAY be naturalized. That involves PAPERWORK pursuant to statutes that did not exist at ratification. To be Natural Born, no one has to follow the changing immigration laws. If your parents both were born here, and you were born here, you are naturally born a citizen of the US. If both your parents were Naturalized, and then you were born here, you are natural born. McCain's eligibility was a matter of Congress's opinion (a resolution) that being born of two US citizens in a military installation in the Panama Canal Zone, while under full ligeance to the US, was an opinion that may be correct. Cruz's claim that his jus sanguinis claim makes him Natural Born is a very bad joke, which tells us that he thinks his opinion means more to him than the Constitution. That's a bad joke. Like referencing this Shark Jump stuff.

+martin thomas -- Cruz's comment brought me here too. But the analogy doesn't fit, and Cruz understands this. He estimated the colorfulness of the statement outweighed its inappropriateness. Trump is not desperate for followers, and the birther criticism of Cruz was actually predictable. I, personally, was just waiting for it. 
Sometimes, I wonder if Trump's gang is politically ignorant and bring up stuff as they learn. They came up with the 9-11 criticism of Bush 43 rather late in the game, and this Cruz birther logic should come to anybody making a first reading of Cruz's bio. His birthplace is the first fact given.

The Constitution doesn't define "natural born", but common practice in America since the writing of the Constitution defines it as including babies born to a US mother (or even father) while outside of the physical US. If Trump could demonstrate that this has not been the practice, then he would have a case, but that's not possible.
Nonetheless, I like the issue being brought up. The issue makes some good questions. Let's say a Mexican shows a DNA report indicating she is the daughter of an American citizen father. Then she gets US citizenship. Right?

Ah, the high point of television. It was downhill all the way from here.

X Factor can only dream of eclipsing this episode of Happy Days.

Simon Cowell can only judge his career unfavourably with The Fonz.

This was even more cheesy than I'd thought it would be. When these writers run out of ideas, they sure can come up with some stupid stuff. And if this aired in September of 1977, this was obviously during the Jaws heyday and being afraid to go in the water and all that. I'll bet the network promoted the hell out of this during summer 1977.

This is the reason Ron Howard became a great director. After being subjected to this crap on a daily basis either he would become a heroin addict, or a director so that nothing like this could ever be shown to the American people.

I remember being a little kid and seeing this as a rerun , and I remember how crappy it was. When your like 10 and you cant stand a crappy shark scene with the Fonz ya know it sucked!

I wish they could do a remake and do it with a Killer Whale ....The Fonz would screw up when a ski breaks he would slam the ramp face first and slowly drop off the top of the ramp into the Killer whale. The whale would chomp him up and flick him into the air on the shoreline....

THEN We Could Have David Hasselhoff, Pam Anderson and the rest of Baywatch crew pull'em outta the water and watch him bleed to death on the beach....and then start the rumor about how Pam Anderson got Hep C from the Fonz!!!

BUT The Fonz would make a full recovery 6 months later. After all the Mayhem that happened, The camera zooms into the hospital room after the attack..... we see him in the hospital bed with the " leather jacket" on with a bunch of teeth marks. The Killer whale couldn't bite all the way thru the jacket and that's what saves him.... Way better version !!!

OMFG this show was so bad looking back .... WOW ....

When I first heard about the jumping the shark thing, I thought there was a small pool containing a shark that Fonzie jumped over with his motorcycle. Seeing the real thing, I can't help but think my idea was worse but somehow better. This makes the list of worst things I have ever seen, just terrible on every possible level and only funny in ways they were never expecting it to be.

Happy Days Jumped the Shark after the first season. Period. When the characters started dressing & talking like the 1970's it was most over for me
Ian McDowell
Ian McDowell - 6 years ago
I can see why this scene was a deal breaker back in the day. I nearly fell asleep waiting for the Fonz's sad little flop over the jump board. So, to really save the series the shark smells the leather in Fonzie's jacket, this gets his juices flowing, Fonzie gives his trademark thumbs up to the crowd on the shore. This is a bad move because the thumb looks to the shark like a small, tasty Italian sausage. So just when Fonzie is congratulating himself, the shark launches himself in the air, bites off the thumb, and throws it into the crowd on the shore. They all want it as a souvenir and fight over it. The cops get called and there's a bloodbath. The sea flows red.

I just...this is so weird to watch from the perspective of someone that grew up in the 90s. I guess maybe because it's talked about so much, I was underwhelmed when I see it. However, I'd have to have more context from the time to see how exciting it must have been
Mathieu Comeau
Mathieu Comeau - 6 years ago

+Mathieu Comeau Hate to use a cliche, but you really had to be there. If it helps with the context issue, the show's main audience was 10-15 year old girls and the nerdy group. Also, It was a throw-back to the 5o's& 60's when life was a little more "wholesome", but that is another story with tv shows like; another Ron Howard vehicle- Mayberry R.F.D., Ozzie and Harriet, My Three Sons and Leave it to Beaver for the popular family hour shows. Hope that helps, if you are really interested check out episodes of those other shows on You-tube and you will see the formula for the Cunningham (Ritchie character/Ron Howard's) family on Happy Days. Oh yeah, if you haven't seen the George Lucas(Star Wars fame) tome to the 50's, when he grew up, check out the excellent movie, American Graffiti-coincidentally co-starring none-other than Ron Howard. Try to put life in perspective then with, no internet, no cell phones and no cable tv- definitely no Beavis and Butt-head, Family Guy or Adult Swim. As you can guess I'm old enough to remember the 50's shows in re-runs, Peace.

I agree. The slow build up to the jump itself with the scene switching between Fonz and the women in bikinis reminds me of Truffaut at his prime as a director. The use of the the Fonz's leather jacket as a metaphor for the American oppression of Antarctic penguins is a simple subtle genius. The shark itself can be seen as quiet rebuke against the perils of vanity and fame facing all the young "Fonzies" in Hollywood. Effective and powerful television indeed.

+Mark McElroy I respect your ability to respond without immediately lashing out, but I would like to hear you substantiate your position. I don't dispute that you think comments are awesome, but I'd like to know what you think is awesome about them. For my taste, it's exasperating to see people who've never met each other and otherwise might like each other if they found themselves colleagues or teammates side by side in real life, just abandon etiquette, compassion, manners and dignity, and rush to condemn one another in the most vile ways. They say vulgar things (often times without basis) that they know they would be very embarrassed for if these comments were shared with their bosses, their grandparents, their teachers and even many of their friends. In other words they just feel the need to belittle, disparage, and insult. If this weren't so predominant, I'm sure I'd see the comments section as a great avenue for constructive criticism, but most of the time we see watchers attacking the doers. There's no accountability and no shame. That is pathetic. What do you think? I also would like to know what you mean by "there's no such thing as progress". Are you saying that you're no further along in life than you were when you were eight years old? I doubt that highly. You've grown, you've learned stuff, you've matured, you've progressed.

+Captain Win I'm having trouble comprehending your comeback; were you saying that I AM an equation or did you drop the equation rip in favor of the "I know you are but what an am I" defense . Must say I'm disappointed after how proud you were about your inequality rip. Since you enjoy using grade school rips (and displayed a lack of grade-school-math comprehension) how about we keep with that theme. I'm not a bully and would rather increase the amount of your learning instead of giving up on you as if it were too late. How about a nice Haiku to try to stimulate that judgmental mind of yours?

+Captain Win hahaha, you were trying to look smart with your witty reply but apparently you need a refresher on basic algebra: "me > you" is NOT an equation, it's an inequality. Perhaps you could also classify it as an algebraic "expression" but in order to have an EQUATION you must have an EQUALS sign, whatever lies on the left side of the = being EQUAL to that on the right side. I understand it's as difficult concept, with equal being the root word in equation, but I'm confident that with practice you'll be able to grasp the idea taught to 12 year olds. I'll give you an example to help you remember: YOU = sucks at math and not as clever as he thinks in arguing semantics with strangers on YouTube. Now see how that worked? It's an EQUATION because the variable to the left of the equals sign "YOU" is EQUAL to everything I said about you on the right side if the equals sign.

 Hey tramp.  If you preface an insult with a racial, religious, homophobic or disabled term then you're guilty of a hate crime of the type you prefaced it with.  Hence, if you call someone a bastard, that's just an insult. Preface it with 'black' and you'll find yourself on a charge of racism.  Preface bastard with any nationality and you can be charged with a race crime.  That's UK law and that's EU law.

+Constance Waring  Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (as amended)
The Act was amended further by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, which came into effect on 25 November 2012.
The legislation provides definitions of racial groups and religious groups in the following terms:
"A racial group means a group of persons defined by reference to race, colour, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origins."

So yes, under UK law (and under international law) nationality is considered a race and ignorance of the law is not a defence.

Richie spends the rest of his life in a mental institution believing in a false reality where Fonzie is still alive. This explains Fonzie's seemingly magical powers by simply snapping his fingers, his meeting an alien named Mork, and Ted McGinley.

No no I read that book, I think you have some of the details confused. Fonzie does indeed appear to die attempting this jump. Months go by in which the Cunningham family and all of Milwaukee struggle to adjust and cope with life without the Fonz. Joni eventually turns to prostitution. Having already suffered the loss of his big cousin, this sends Chaci into a further tailspin which leads to a crippling drug addiction. Then one morning Richie awakens to the sound of running water. He proceeds to the bathroom  which is full of steam, pulls back the shower curtain and is shocked but relieved to see Fonzie alive and well. Caught completely off-guard the Fonz lets out a bewildered "AAAaaayyyyy!!"

I'll state the obvious only because there is so much incorrect discussion about the origin of the term.
The term "Jump the Shark" was coined by John Hein, who is now a contributing personality to The Howard Stern channels on Sirius-XM satellite radio. In college he and friends debated the subject. He started a website called Jump the Shark which detailed the episode that he believed popular American tv shows began their decline. Yes, this was the episode from which that phrase was coined.  THe website was sold to TV guide.
And yes.. Family Guy just jumped the Shark.

There's nothing wrong with this scene. Communists, Liberals, and sexual inverts coined the phrase 'jumped the shark' so they could mock muscular, heroic American youth.

...And we knew another sitcom fell to the coke numbed imaginations of television writers. We suffered at home, hopelessly addicted to 3 networks in those days before cable came to every town, while the hollywood lizards writhed, tongues entwined in their polyester mural shirts and 3 inch heels. Disco music pounding in their ears, hypnotically calling them to sacrifice the viewers on the altar of 70s boredom.

The phrase more accurately implies that a TV show (or anything else for that matter) has already used up every meaningful or useful story, device, or theme. Saying that they've jumped the shark mean they don't have anything new to add.

"Jumped the shark" means a show has hit bottom and it's time to put it out of it's misery not that they made an outrageous episode to win back viewers. After Richie and Ralph left the show is when this show should have ended.

actually, the first 2 seasons were very good but then the show began to revolve around the Fonz and it became a joke. Fonzie was a great character when he played a secondary role but then he became a caricature of himself.

It didn't "make" the show suck. The observation is that it was a big desperate move to stay relevant, when it was pretty clear its glory days were over. Jumping the shark doesn't mean the moment that makes a show suck; it means the moment that marks the point where it becomes painfully obvious that a show has lost it and is trying and failing to regain it. Basically the switch from "dad, you're pretty cool" to "dad, you're embarrassing me".

"He's approaching the shark!" "He's almost there!" "He's getting really close!" "Look, there's the shark he's going to jump over!" "I can't believe he's going to jump the shark!" "He's jumping it!" "He's in the air!" "He really did it!"

That's one way to look at it. Another is: "The writers have run out of good ideas that make sense for the characters." That meaning holds as true for this episode of Happy Days as it does for shows running today.

Methinks they would have reached their goal in increasing their ratings had they ended the scene with him missing the jump, only for the shark to spend half as much time ripping him to shreds as the rest of the cast spent saying "is he gonna do it?" "i think hes gonna do it" "i can't believe hes really gonna do it" "look hes getting ready to do it"

That is not an accurate defintion of Jump The Shark, it menas more like 'the peak' or the beginning of the end' (although I've herd it argued that the phrase was retroactively applied, & Happy Daze had 6 more years before failing. imho the term stuck because "ordered another burger" didn't have the same ring to it.

My kids used the term "jump the shark" to mean someone tried something that was too hard, that it shouldn't have been tried. I tried to built a bike from scratch and one of my kids said, "Gee dad, you jumped the shark." At that moment I realized that if you're old enough to remember the beginning of a term, you're really, really old.
