Happy Days Quiz
Article on Whatever Happened To The Cast Members Of
Happy Days ?
Here's the challenge to how you phrased your Fan Made Quiz suggestion. MeTV won't present a Quiz unless there are real answers and make sense. Technically, what happened to most of the characters mentioned about, is that the writers were no longer including them in storylines. Of course, imaginary characters don't disappear, they never existed.

However to be successful with a Quiz idea, the question could be rephrased to ask.

After the [above named character = actor's name] appeared the [Series named] what was the next TV Show or Film did he appear in?

That'll take a little time researching, by calling up Wikipedia, but at least it will help you to continue enjoying the characters who you like thinking about. 🦃
