Reception[edit]

Henry Winkler had received an Emmy nomination for 'Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy' for his appearance in the episode Walter's Rib, but after a newspaper reporter pointed out that the episode had been postponed to June from an earlier scheduled airdate and therefore missed the Emmy's May 31 deadline, the nomination was withdrawn.[6]
