Even if you weren't a diehard "Happy Days" fan, you know who Fonzie is. Henry Winkler played Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli, the quintessentially cool motorcycle-riding, leather-jacket-wearing high school dropout who ends up working as an auto mechanic. So what's Henry up to today?
Henry Winkler continued to work steadily in Hollywood after hanging up the Fonz's leather jacket. From an episode of "MacGyver" to TV movies like "The Only Way Out" and "Dad's Week Off," he spent most of the '80s and '90s on the small screen. In the last two decades, he had recurring roles on shows like "Out of Practice," "Numb3rs," "Parks and Recreation" and "Arrested Development." But it was his role on HBO's "Barry" that got him the most attention. In 2018, Henry won his very first Primetime Emmy Award — for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his work as acting coach Gene Cousineau on "Barry" — after five previous nominations for other projects. His performance on "Barry" also earned him a Critic's Choice Television Award in 2019 and a Golden Globe nomination. Henry has been married to Stacey Weitzman since 1978. They share two children, Zoe and Max.
Ron Howard played Richie Cunningham, the all-American teen and devoted son. The girl-obsessed, clean-cut kid was always surrounded by his pals including Fonzie, Potsie and Ralph.
Once "Happy Days" ended, Ron Howard continued to act for a time, mainly voicing characters — like himself on a few episodes of "The Simpsons" and a 1999 episode of "Frasier," plus he was the narrator on "Arrested Development" (on which he also occasionally appeared as himself). The last notable time he was in front of the camera? A few episodes of "This Is Us" in 2017 and 2018. Ron's far better known for his work as a powerhouse director. 1995's "Apollo 13," 2001's "A Beautiful Mind" (for which he won a best director Oscar), 2006's The Da Vinci Code" and 2018's "Solo: A Star Wars Story" are just a few of his biggest flicks to date. Ron's been happily married to writer Cheryl Alley since 1975. Actress Bryce Dallas Howard is one of their four kids.
Marion Ross starred as Marion Cunningham, the matriarch of the Cunningham clan. Aside from being a homemaker and mother of three, she was also somewhat of a surrogate mom to son Richie's pal Fonzie, whom she calls by his given name, Arthur.
After "Happy Days," Marion Ross moved on to "The Love Boat," where she had multiple roles off and on for over a decade. She did stints on shows like "MacGyver" and "Night Court" before starring on the short-lived series "Brooklyn Bridge" from 1991 to 1993. She most notably landed recurring roles as Grandma Forman on "That '70s Show," as Sophie and Emma on "Touched By An Angel," as Gran on "Gilmore Girls" and as Ida on "Brothers & Sisters." She also found success as a voice actress, lending her skills to the family film "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" and cartoons like "Handy Manny" and "SpongeBob SquarePants." Marion has two children with former husband Freeman Meskimen — Jim Meskimen, who's an actor, and Ellen Plummer, who worked as a writer and producer on "Friends."
The show's resident dad? Tom Bosley played Howard Cunningham, a hardware store owner and all-American father in the '50s.
"Happy Days" was Tom Bosley's most iconic role, followed closely by his next big recurring character on "Murder, She Wrote," on which he played Sheriff Amos Tupper for 19 episodes from 1984 to 1988. From there, he did a string of TV movie and show appearances on projects ranging from "ER" to "That '70s Show" to "One Tree Hill" and then later had voice roles on the cartoons "Johnny Bravo," "Rugrats" and the children's movie "Santa Buddies." Tom passed away in 2010 from complications of a staph infection. He was survived by his wife, actress Patricia Carr, and his daughter, Amy, from a previous marriage.
The youngest Cunningham in the crew, Joanie, found plenty of ways to get herself in trouble. From spying on brother Richie to ticking off her parents, she was no stranger to being sent to her room. Erin Moran played Joanie, who later starred on her own spinoff, "Joanie Loves Chachi."
Erin Moran landed the role of Joanie at 13 and grew up in front of viewers' eyes. She left "Happy Days" briefly to star on spinoff "Joanie Loves Chachi," but after it was canceled, she returned to "Happy Days" in 1983 for its final season. She went on to land a recurring role on "The Love Boat" in the '80s and had one-off appearances on "Murder, She Wrote" in 1986 and "Diagnosis Murder" in 1998. A decade later, she scored an acting role on "The Bold and the Beautiful" in 2009 and in "Not Another B Movie" in 2010, but she was more active in reality TV. She served as a panelist on "Hollywood Squares" from 2001 to 2003, competed on "Celebrity Fit Club" in 2008 and appeared on "Celebrity Ghost Stories" in 2012. Erin — who married second husband Steven Fleischmann in 1993 following a brief first marriage — died in 2017 at 56 from complications of throat cancer, her husband confirmed.
Scott Baio played Charles Arcola — better known as Chachi, Fonzie's cousin, who joined the show during Season 5. Chachi quickly fell for Joanie Cunningham and ended up landing the spinoff "Joanie Loves Chachi."
Like love interest Joanie, the character of Chachi returned to "Happy Days" for the final season after "Joanie Loves Chachi" was canceled. Scott Baio bounced from one successful series to the next in 1984, wrapping up "Happy Days" and then moving on to "Charles in Charge" that same year. He played the titular character from 1984 to 1990. He landed various TV projects in the '90s, most notably "Baby Talk" and "Diagnosis Murder," before landing a string of appearances on shows like "The Nanny," "Touched by an Angel" and "Arrested Development" over the last two decades. He moved into reality TV with VH1's "Scott Baio is 45… and Single" in 2007, which was followed by by "Scott Baio is 46… and Pregnant" the following year. He also co-hosted "Confessions of a Teen Idol" in 2009. More recently, he starred on the short-lived Nick at Nite series "See Dad Run" from 2012 to 2014. Aside from acting, Scott has long been active in politics, campaigning for Ronald Reagan in the '80s and continuing to support Republican candidates over the years. In 2007, he married Renee Sloan, with whom he shares daughter Bailey, who was born that same year.
Warren Weber was one of Richie Cunningham's best pals. He got the nickname Potsie after making things out of clay as a kid. Anson Williams brought the gullible (yet super-lovable!) character to life.
After acting on "Happy Days," Anson Williams transitioned to a successful career as a television director. He started with short programs geared toward teens in the mid-'80s and ended up directing episodes of many popular shows like "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Melrose Place," "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Xena: Warrior Princess," "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," "Charmed" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." In 1992 and 2005, he got back together with the "Happy Days" cast for reunion specials and has occasionally returned to acting a few times, including for a 1996 episode of "Boy Meets World" on which he played himself. His most recent acting gig was subbing for close friend and "Happy Days" co-star Don Most (who played Ralph Malph) in a Delaware Theatre Company production of the Dan Clancy play "Middletown" in 2019. In September 2019, Anson filed to divorce his wife of 30 years, Jackie Gerken, with whom he shares four kids. He also has a child from a previous marriage to Lorrie Mahaffey.
Every group of pals needs a jokester, and that was Ralph Malph on "Happy Days." Don Most played the funny friend on the show.
Don Most appeared on all the seasons of "Happy Days" and continued to keep busy in Hollywood after the show wound down. He appeared on the series "Dungeons & Dragons" in the mid-'80s before landing a role on "Teen Wolf" in 1986. He made appearances on popular shows like "Baywatch," "Murder, She Wrote" and "Charles in Charge" in the '80s and '90s too. More recently, he had a recurring role on "Glee" from 2011 to 2013 and popped up on "The Bold and the Beautiful" in 2017. The actor, who's also done theater work through the years, has been married to actress Morgan Hart since 1982. They share two daughters.
