Where are these Happy Days Actors now?

Happy Days is a sitcom that ran from 1974 to 1984 on ABC network. All eleven seasons of the show produced 255 thirty-minute episodes that mainly presented an idealized version of American mid-west life during the 1950s and 60s. The show influenced the style of TV at its time and is a major international hit. The series’ creator, Garry Marshall, was initially a sports reporter who also did stand-up and gag-writing for comics Joey Bishop and Phil Foster. He became a TV comedy writer in 1960 when Jack Paar hired him to write five jokes per day for The Tonight Show. He later wrote for sitcoms such as The Lucy Show and The Dick Van Dyke Show. He created Happy Days as an Italian-American kid from the Bronx’s imagined version of how middle class life was in the American midwest. The sitcom’s first two seasons focused on the teenage problems of Richie Cunningham and attempted to depict the innocence of adolescent life. Though it was a moderate hit, the show had to be retooled when ratings started to fall during the show’s second season. It was at this time when the show began to focus on the character of Fonzie, a biker and high school dropout that eventually became the sitcom’s iconic and most popular character. The show eventually made actors Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, and Robin Williams household names. Other actors from the series similarly enjoyed immense popularity.
