TV Fact #209 – May 21st, 2015:

The last name of the lead character Charles (Played by Scott Baio) in “Charles in Charge” is never mentioned with the writers even at times going out of their way to avoid mentioning his, or his mother’s surname. This led to interesting gossip.

Because his last name is never mentioned, this lead people to think that actor Baio was once again playing the role of Charles Arcola aka “Chachi” from his previous show “Happy Days” (1974-1984) and Joanie Loves Chachi (1982-1983). Actress Ellen Travolta also plays Baio’s mother on all three series. However, the clue to showing they weren’t the same characters is in “Charles in Charge”, Travolta’s name was Lillian and on the previous two series she was named Louisa Arcola-Delvecchio.

So for any fans still wondering, there is your answer. Was it enough or is there a mass TV conspiracy going on? For those who think there is…really?
