The first day at a new school is hard for anyone. Even back in the 1970s. Of course, being from a foreign land only makes it tougher. In fact, Fez ran into a group of bullies on his first day. He was lucky when Eric, Hyde, and Kelso found him. It worked out for them too. Indeed, he was the missing piece of the group. Well, they might regret saving him now. Turns out Fez is one crazy dude. His friends even point that out.
Without Fez, That '70s Show isn't the same. He completes the gang and the show. Fez is a good and loyal friend. He often stands up for the gang. He's sweet, innocent, and a bit naive. Regardless, he's a caring friend that's always there for them. They can depend on him to help them out. However, his friends overlook his many flaws. As noted, his friends often point out that he's weird and crazy. He does a lot of things that most people might find odd. In fact, he's lucky his friends were cool with it. In some cases, he could have ended up in jail.
Fez might be strange but he's still their friend. To be fair, nobody's perfect. They're all misfits that end up as a group. Fez is the ultimate misfit but he's their misfit. It's time to take a closer look at Fez and his friends. Here's That '70s Show: 25 Things Wrong With Fez We All Choose To Ignore.
25 HE YELLS AT KITTY THAT SHE'S NOT HIS MOTHER
Obviously, Red and Kitty are Eric's parents. However, Kitty's a mother to the group. In fact, the Foreman's let Hyde move in. They also feed the rest of the kids. Kitty and Fez have a close relationship. She understands him better than most. However, in the last season, they get into a huge fight. Kitty thinks he needs to stop with the constant dating and over-abundance of relationships. Instead, he yells at her that she's not his mother. Kitty is only looking out for him and trying to protect him. She really is the closest thing he has to a mother in the U.S.
24 HE SECRETLY WATCHES HIS FRIENDS RELATIONSHIPS
The gang views Fez as being harmless. However, he does have a pretty strange side. Initially, Fez struggles to meet girls. On the other hand, his friends have girlfriends that they can constantly be close to. Since Fez can't get his own girlfriend he secretly watches his friends being close to one another. He hides in the background while they are together. His friends often catch him and kick him out. Well, Kelso actually doesn't mind if Fez watches. As a matter of fact, he let him hang out a few times, knowing he was there. Clearly, they're really good friends.
23 HE TRIES TO CHARM JACKIE'S MOM
Fez openly flirts with his friend's moms. He's not very good at it and usually makes them feel uncomfortable. In other words, he's no Kelso. Like the other guys, Fez had a crush on Jackie's mother, Pam. At one point, he even tries to charm her. To be fair, Donna and Jackie make him do it. It didn't take much convincing, though. Of course, she turns him down. It's odd that a teen could make the comments he makes to Pam. In the end, he's lucky that Bob didn't hurt him. Fez needs to be careful about the things he says to people.
22 HE'S JEALOUS OF KELSO'S DAUGHTER
Fez and Kelso become best friends. In fact, Fez basically looks up to him. However, Fez is angry when Kelso doesn't pay attention to him. Fez even gets jealous of Kelso's daughter. When Brooke is due, Fez is clearly jealous. He doesn't like how much attention Kelso's paying to the baby. He even calls Kelso as a prank when he's waiting to hear from Brooke. Instead of being a good friend, he makes it all about Fez. He doesn't care that Kelso's about to go through a life-changing moment. Fez can be very self-centered at times and usually needs to be in the spotlight with his friends.
21 HE MAKES A MOVE ON JACKIE WHEN SHE'S DATING KELSO
Fez always had a huge crush on Jackie. It was just a crush and nothing serious. In fact, it was always about Jackie and Kelso. Indeed, Kelso and Jackie were pretty serious. Regardless, that didn't stop Fez from flirting with her. He tried to steal her away from Kelso many times. As a matter of fact, he even kissed her once. While at the movies, Fez kissed Jackie because he thought she was flirting. Clearly, Fez isn't being a good friend in this case. It's not cool for him to do that to Jackie. He needs to learn to treat his friends better.
20 FEZ AND HYDE STEAL A COP CAR
Fez and Hyde enjoy pranking Kelso. Of course, he deserves it for all the times he got them. However, Fez and Hyde take it to a whole new level. At one point, Kelso actually made it into the police academy. While in training Fez and Hyde took advantage. For instance, they stole a cop car from Kelso while he was gazing in a mirror. To be fair, Kelso forgot the keys in the car. Plus, he actually took it without permission. Fez and Hyde later stash the car in Red's garage. Fez wasn't exactly being a good friend to Kelso and it could have ended really badly for everyone involved.
19 HE GAVE RED A HEART ATTACK
At one point, Fez goes to jail for vandalizing the water tower. He gets out but has to leave the country. They found out his Visa expires with graduation. He gets together with Eric's sister Laurie but they do way more. In fact, Laurie marries Fez so he can stay. Moments before Eric leaves for Madison, Fez and Laurie tell Red, which causes Red to have a heart attack. Not only does Red have a heart attack but Eric has to stay. This all happens because of Fez trying to stay in the country. Later, he moves in with The Foreman's and doesn't seem to care he gave Red a heart attack.
18 HE TRIES TO DANCE WITH HIS TEACHER AT PROM
Fez seems to not understand the basic rules of dating. There are some women he just can't go after. For instance, his high school English teacher. Clearly, there's something not right about a student and teacher hooking up. Luckily, the teacher is aware of the reasons not to. Of course, that doesn't stop Fez. Even when the odds are against him he still tries. He does get to tear up the dance floor and have a good time. Regardless, he needs to learn that teachers are off limits. In fact, Fez needs to learn that a lot of people are off-limits. He's not very good at keeping to himself.
17 HE Attacks A RABBIT TO IMPRESS A GIRL
Fez struggles with flirting with women. In fact, he struggles with being around them and talking to them. He can't hide that strange and overbearing side to him. That might be the reason he's single for so long. For instance, he once had a crush on cadet Suzy Simpson. Of course, she has a crush on Kelso. Kelso tries to make Fez look good but there's only one problem. Fez himself. Fez tries to show off his shooting skills and shoots an innocent rabbit. However, Simpson actually likes rabbits and is sad to see it perish. Fez should definitely stay away from firearms.
16 HE'S BAD AT MAKING FIRST IMPRESSIONS
Fez actually has a few girlfriends in the show. In fact, he's pretty serious with Nina. He's nervous the first time he meets her parents. The guys point out that Fez is bad at making a first impression. He usually comes across as strange and inappropriate. In fact, he often flirts with his friend's moms the first time he meets them. The gang is cool with his strange comments but other people are different. He just has a hard time acting normal. To be fair, Nina's parents like him until they realize they're dating. It does work out for Fez in the end, though.
15 HIS HOST PARENTS DON'T APPEAR AFTER SEASON 1
Fez spends most of his time in Eric's basement with his friends. In fact, they all pretty much live there at one time. However, Fez actually lives with his host parents for the first few seasons. They even appear in season 1. His parents don't like the music he listens to or the friends he hangs out with. Oddly, his host parents never appear again in the show. He still lives with them and mentions them from time to time. It's possible they just gave up trying to control him. It would definitely be difficult to keep Fez in line all the time.
14 HE KISSES KITTY THE FIRST TIME HE MEETS HER
As noted, Fez isn't very good at making a first impression. As a matter of fact, it's usually awkward and weird. To his friends it's normal but to anyone else, it's just bizarre. For instance, the first time he met Eric's mother, he kissed her. It wasn't just a peck on the cheek either. He fully went for the lips. That wasn't even the worse part. He then tried to kiss Red on the lips. Fez also seems to have a bit of a crush on Kitty. He even claims she kissed him back. There he goes again being full of himself.
13 HE HAS A CRUSH ON KELSO
Fez and Kelso have a special friendship. They're closest to each other in the group. However, it seems that Fez has a crush on Kelso. He often remarks on Kelso's good looks and charm. In fact, it seems like he flirts with Kelso. He even gets angry when Kelso doesn't pay enough attention to him. To be fair, Kelso only seems a little bothered by it. For the most part, he enjoys hanging out with Fez. It might be that Fez has a crush on Kelso. On the other hand, he might just look up to him as a hero.
12 HE MAKES STRANGE COMMENTS TO HIS FRIEND'S GIRLFRIENDS
Clearly, Fez doesn't know how to act around women. He makes them feel uncomfortable with his comments. In fact, he often crosses the line with his friend's girlfriends. He doesn't seem to understand how things work at first. For instance, he asked for a hickey from Donna or Jackie after seeing the one that Donna gave Eric. He seems to think Donna's just giving them out for free. He also makes strange comments about staring at them from afar. It's a bit odd his friends never explain to him how to behave around people.
11 HE USES WOMEN
By the end of the show, there are two Fez's. In later seasons, he becomes a ladies man with a different woman every night. In the early seasons, he's awkward and desperate to be with a woman. Regardless, he seems to mistreat women. Kelso and Hyde are not saints but Fez takes it down a level. He's strange and a bit obsessive sometimes. He just wants to use women and have his fun. He doesn't care if it's a one-time thing or if they're his girlfriend. In addition, he gladly shares intimate details with his friends.
10 HE SUDDENLY BECOMES A LADIES MAN
Fez was always bad with women. He didn't know how to talk to them and rarely went on dates. He was the nerdy and strange guy that most women would avoid. However, that all changes in the final season. Fez suddenly becomes a ladies man in the last season. Apparently, he learned very well from Kelso. He starts dating a different girl every night. He even starts dressing better. He's no longer the crazy guy that can't get a date. Instead, he basically becomes a version of Kelso but remains slightly strange. To be fair, Kelso could be strange at times too.
9 HE MARRIES LAURIE TO STAY IN THE COUNTRY
Fez and Kelso both liked to make advances at Eric's sister Laurie. In fact, they often made comments that made Eric feel uncomfortable. However, Kelso dates Laurie while Fez just watches in the background. Later, Fez gets a lot closer with Laurie. At one point, Laurie returns with a different attitude. She's nicer to Eric and his friends. At the same time, Fez's green card expires and has to go back home. Fez and Laurie end up together and marry. Not only does he spend time with Eric's sister but he marries her to stay in the country. In addition, Fez ends up moving in and makes life miserable for Red.
8 HE BLINDLY LISTENS TO HYDE
Clearly, Fez is gullible and naive. In fact, he often believes anything his friends tell him. In particular, he seems to listen to Hyde blindly. This is actually a bad idea. Hyde enjoys giving Fez misinformation that makes him look like a fool. The first few times he falls for it is understandable. However, Fez should learn not to listen to Hyde. Hyde lies to him many times and Fez still believes him. Even when it's obvious to everyone else. Hyde isn't a very good friend but Fez is a bit too gullible.
7 HE'S DESPERATE TO GET A DATE
Fez is like any teen boy his age. He wants to meet girls and go on dates. However, he struggles with women, unlike his friends. As time goes by he becomes more and more desperate. In fact, it comes to the point where he'll end up with anyone. He doesn't care who it is or where it is. Even when he ends up getting together with someone for the first time he's desperate about it. Indeed, he even makes up a little dance. He remains that desperate until the final season. Thankfully, Fez ends up becoming much better at dating.
6 HIS CONFLICTING BACKGROUND
Fez gives very little information regarding his background. In fact, his homeland remains a mystery to the very end. He never reveals his background or his homeland. Fez gives conflicting information that only makes it more confusing. At one point, he claims to have Latin pride. He clarifies that he's not Latin but his pride is. Later, his good friend arrives and speaks with a British accent. Rumors suggest he might be from Indonesia. Regardless, it's unknown where Fez really comes from. It's one of the show's biggest mysteries. It's likely we will never know exactly what part of the world that Fez originated.
5 HE TAKES PICTURES OF DONNA
At one point, Bob forces Donna to go to an all-girls school. Initially, Eric is strongly against the idea. That is, until he sees Donna in her uniform. He's not the only one who likes it. In fact, the guys fawn over her in the uniform. As always, Fez has to take it one step further. He often attempts to get a better look at Donna. Indeed, he even takes pictures. He pretends to take pictures to take back home and snaps a few of her. That means he plans on taking pictures of Donna with him. Clearly, he's very strange and a bit overbearing.
4 EXCHANGE STUDENT
Fez is an important part of the gang. They truly enjoy having him as a friend. He's the last one to join but fits right in. However, his friends can't pronounce his actual name. Instead of learning his name they come up with one. They actually call him Foreign Exchange Student, which they shorten to Fes. Over time, the name transforms into Fez. It would have been nice if his friends could pronounce his actual name. He's such a good friend but they didn't take the time to learn his name.
3 FEZ AND JACKIE
The show features many famous couples. The most famous couples were Donna and Eric and Jackie and Kelso. Later, Jackie also dates Hyde. Most fans didn't enjoy the final season. One of the problems was a sudden couple. Fez goes through his ladies man phase and Jackie starts to have feelings for him. Fez had a crush on her for the entire show. However, this was one couple the fans didn't want to see. In fact, he pretty much spies on Jackie for the first few seasons. Fez is also okay with the fact that she dated two of his best friends.
2 FEZ LOVES CANDY (Too Much)
The '70 were all about love, peace, and rock and roll. On the other hand, for Fez, it was all about the candy. Fez loves to eat candy. In fact, candy is the only thing he would choose over a woman. He eats a large amount of candy just for fun. As a matter of fact, he once ate a box of chocolates meant for his girlfriend. He even made his friends take him trick or treating on Halloween. There's no way he would pass up the chance for free candy. Clearly, he eats too much candy. We can understand though, candy is good.
1 FEZ SPIES ON DONNA AND JACKIE
As noted, Fez is one overbearing dude. In fact, he often spies on Donna and Jackie. This isn't something a friend normally does. He often spies on his friends being close to each other. However, this is slightly different from that. Fez often hides in Donna's closest and spies on her changing and being close to Eric. Later, he even hides under Donna's bed when Jackie moves in. Donna kicks him out but he promises not to make too many sounds. Donna and Jackie seem to let this slide. However, it's strange that he hides out in the closet and under their beds.
