  • The Fonz is concerned that he is no longer 'cool' and so he sets about proving that he is, but is risking his life really worth it?

    Fonzie is going through a crisis. For some reason, he believes that he is no longer 'cool'. Richie and the others try to reassure him that this is utter nonsense but he is still feeling very low and decides that he has to do something daring in order to prove to himself that he still 'has it', whatever it is.

    He makes arrangement to jump his motocycle over fourteen garbage cans - a record, but a highly dangerous one. The stunt will be televised live on 'You Wanted To See It' and Fonz is convinced that if he can pull it off, he will be cool again and that neither he nor anybody else will question it.

    Part 1 of 2.
  • Worried that he is losing his cool, Fonzie plans to break a record and jump over 14 garbage cans on his motorcycle...

    This episode maybe isn't the most hilarious offering of the series, but it is a good one, and one of the most notable.

    Worried that he is loosing his cool, Fonzie decides to atempt to break a record and jump 14 garbage cans on his motorcycle. The stunt will be televised on the TV show 'You Wanted To see It'. The Fonz's usual magic touch not working on things is amusing, and there is some real tension around his big jump.

    This would probably have worked better as a single episode, but with such a big event, they probably wanted to milk it and extend it into a two-parter.
