Poll question: Happy Days: what ever happened to Ritchie's brother, Chuck?
In the 1970s, there was a television show about the '50s (as opposed to Leave it to Beaver which was a show about the '50s from the '50s). During the first season when Rock Around the Clock was the opening credit song, Ritchie and Joanie had an older brother named Chuck. Chuck vanished without a trace pretty quickly to a point where he was never mentioned again. People spoke of the TWO Cunningham children and Howard of his eldest son Ritchey. They got rid of Chuck and then covered-up his existence.

So what the fuck happened to Chuck?

6. Where did Sondra come from on the Cosby Show?
And how did Cliff's name get changed?

In an early episode of the Cosby Show, Cliff says something to Claire about their four children. In later episodes they have five children, and miraculously, the new addition isn't the youngest child - she's the oldest!

Also in an early episode, the name shown by Cliff's office door is Clifford Huxtable. Later, his name was changed from Clifford to Heathcliff.

15. Dated Laura.
Romance soured.

Laura got the last word with a Jeep, 12-pack and a stop sign that just couldn't hold her back.

Wrote a song about it, wanna hear it? Here it goes!
