He has always seemed like such a good guy.

I could never understand him shilling reverse mortgages. It's made me skeptical about him ever since.

That was very nice. Thanks for the share Subby.

Funny thing... Henry Winkler is dyslexic, and when he read the script, it called for Fonzie to say "yyyaaaa" with a big thumbs up. He misread that, using the now famous "aaayyy" but the director loved it, and history was made.

That made me a bit misty.  Potsy even.

I used to like Anson Williams, but then I realized I liked Donny Most.

According to all stories I have ever heard about him, Henry Winkler is one of the nicest guys in entertainment.

Fonzie has been awesome for over 40 years.

By comparison, Chachi regularly gets into fights with people on Twitter over politics.

The Fonz is better.

My father was at Emerson College at the same time as the Fonz, and said even back then, he was a super nice and chill dude.

Chachi didnt' take Fonzie's advice, obviously, all those years ago. Scott Baio is not a good person.

Because Fonzi is smart.

Not too long ago, he was on an NPR show that thinks it's far funnier than it really is, and he credited all of his success to two things: gratitude and tenacity. That really stuck with me.

If that doesn't establish a certain level of awesomeness/coolness/good-peopleness, I don't know what does.

I began to hate the show after the first season (that cliffhanger and everything after has been tonally preposterous), but it's still worth watching for Winkler alone.

Oh yes and Mr Winkler is quite a delightful part of it.

I tweeted at him once long ago in the early days of twitter, just said "you're awesome." And he tweeted back "thank you."

I tell ya, my inner ten year old is still deliriously happy. The mothafarkin fonz, yo!!!

it was announced before the end of season 2 that there would be a season 3, but pandemic. So who knows when we'll actually see it.

Great freaking show and Hader and Winkler are awesome in it.
