Teenage heartthrob Scott Baio starred in this short-
livd spin-off from Happy Days, which saw Fonzie's young
cousin Chachi move to Chicago with his mother, Louisa,
and stepfather, Al, and try to start a singing career. With
him were best girl Joanie, who shared the vocals, and
his backup band: a spaced-out drummer named Bingo,
a chubby cousin named Annette, and another cousin,
Mario. Mario and Annette's father, Uncle Rico, was their
agent. Joanie and Chachi sang several numbers in
each episode, usually at Al and Louisa's newly opened
restaurant. Though there were new songs in each
episode, and Chachi had girls in the audience swooning,
neither the songs nor the show caught on, and most of
the cast soon returned to Milwaukee and Happy Days.
