G.O.B. Bluth (Will Arnett)
Sure, the Web wasn’t around to capitalize on these classic shows. But if it had been, here are some games we would have wanted to play.

Happy Days: Fonzie's Wacky Water Skis | In this water-skiing simulator, which features realistic wave physics, players navigate an obstacle course as the leather-jacket-clad Fonz. Points are scored by a combination of freestyle tricks, slaloms, and, of course, jumps.

Saved By The Bell: Fast Times at Bayside High | It’s a race against time as Zack Morris drives Jessie to the hospital after she overdoses on over-the-counter pep pills. The handicap: Zack has had a sip of beer sometime during the night, and therefore the controls are reversed. Make it to the hospital in time and get back to Bayside High to deliver Mr. Belding’s baby.

The Honeymooners Hyper Fighting | This head-to-head fighting game is modeled after Street Fighter II. Using an arsenal of fireballs, spin kicks, and flying uppercuts, Ralph Kramden battles his way across the globe in a quest to send the evil Mecha-Alice back to her home base on the moon, once and for all.

Arrested Development: G.O.B.'s Segway Racer | Two-wheeled racing has never been faster, or more furious. Each character has a special attack: G.O.B. shoots fireballs from his fingertips, Tobias lays down a blue oil slick, and Kitty can cause temporary blindness.

SportsCenter: Berman's Alley | Test your reflexes in this fast-paced shooting gallery. Can you pick off the evil SportsCenter anchors before they spout off catch phrases like “Cooler than the other side of the pillow” and “That’s levitation, homes”? But be careful not to hit untouchable demigods like Peyton Manning and Derek Jeter or you’ll be banished to Fox Sports!
