Jumping the Shark

A couple of years ago I created this scene depicting the famous “Jumping the Shark” scene from the TV show “Happy Days.” Here, Richie Cunningham drives the boat pulling the Fonz on water skis as he leaps over a shark to prove his bravery. This is the origin of the phrase often used to describe the point where a TV series becomes lame.

This has been featured in a few of the Bay Area LEGO Train Club displays over the past couple of years, and I have included some of those photos in the photo set on Flickr for this model. To see the pictures, click the image or view a slideshow of the pictures.
