In the season 2 opener episode, "See Dad Throw a Birthday Party", Janie's birthday venue cancels at the last minute and David (Scott Baio) becomes party planner. To top Janie's friend Charlotte's amazing party, David plans a birthday bash complete with a famous monkey (guest starring Crystal the Monkey, "The Hangover"), but things quickly turn too wild!

The episode, expected to premiere during Fall (Autumn) 2013, will be directed by Marshall's son, Scott Marshall. Garry Marshall helped launch Baio's career, casting him as Arthur "The Fonz/Fonzie" Fonzarelli's (Henry Winkler) younger cousin, Chachi Arcola, on "Happy Days". He went on to win a Young Artist Award for his comedic turn in the long-running series. Marshall filmed the "See Dad Run" episode on Paramount's Stage 19 -- the same soundstage where "Happy Days" was filmed during its 1974-1984 run!

Original Nickelodeon Press Release:

See Dad Run returns to Nick at Nite beginning this Sunday, Sept. 8, at 8p.m. (ET/PT)!

In this Sunday night’s episode, “See Dad Throw a Birthday Party,” Janie’s birthday venue cancels last minute and David (Scott Baio) becomes party planner. To top Janie’s friend Charlotte’s amazing party, David plans a birthday bash complete with a famous monkey (Crystal the Monkey, The Hangover), but things quickly turn too wild

In See Dad Run, now in its second season, David Hobbs (Baio) has spent the last decade playing the perfect father on one of TV’s biggest sitcoms. But when the series ends and his wife (Alanna Ubach, Legally Blonde) resumes her own television career, he finds himself cast in his most challenging role to date: handling the day-to-day needs of three kids who’ve grown accustomed to not having him around. David soon learns that playing a dad on TV is child’s play compared to the real thing. Rounding out the cast are Ryan Newman (Zeke and Luther) and Bailey Michelle Brown as David’s daughters, Emily and Janie, and Jackson Brundage (One Tree Hill) as David’s son, Joe. Mark Curry (Hangin' with Mr. Cooper) also stars as David’s friend.
