Scott Baio was educated at Xaverian High School. He began his career in 1976, when he portrayed the main character in Alan Parker’s musical gangster film called “Bugsy Malone”, in which he co-starred alongside Florrie Dugger and Jodie Foster. A year later, Baio was offered an opportunity to play Chachi Arcola in Garry Marshall’s “Happy Days”; other characters in the series were played by Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Tom Bosley and Marion Ross. Over the years, “Happy Days” managed to maintain Top 30 spot ratings, except for season two and season 11. The popularity of the show inspired the release of two animated series, namely “The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang” and “The Mork & Mindy”, several musicals, as well as spin-off series “Mork & Mindy”, “Lavern & Shirley”, and “Joani Loves Chachi”. The latter show aired for two seasons, from 1982 until 1983, and featured Scott Baio and Erin Moran in the main roles. Even though the first few episodes enjoyed a decent audience, the popularity of the show declined quickly, hence it was taken off air after 17 episodes. However, Baio’s appearances  brought him more public recognition, and exposure in the media, as a result of which he was never shy of job offers

In 1981, aside from filming for “Happy Days”, Scott Baio played the main character in the film called “Stoned”, alongside John Herzfeld and Steve Monarque. Baio’s performance in “Stoned” brought him a Young Artist Award for Best Young Actor in a Television Special. Baio received his second Young Artist Award for playing Chaci Arcola.

More recently, in 2012 Scott Baio debuted with his own television series entitled “See Dad Run”, playing the main character, and also serving as an executive producer of the show. He has since been involved in “Sam and Cat”, and “A Fairly Odd Summer”, so he is still in demand for his various talents. Scott has now a portfolio including almost 20 films and 60 TV productions.
