    Henry Winkler as a child abuser??? That's a hard one to believe... also hard to believe that Ron Howard would be friends with a child abuser. Of course one never knows,,,,, but....
    I met HW briefly on a plane...he was at the back of first class, I was at the front of tourist, and I had to stow stuff in his overhead bin,and he helped me stuff it. Told him I always enjoyed his work and he thanked me. He was very nice with all the folks asking for autographs etc. Went home and looked for my old Fonz poster!
    Also met Tony Danza (Taxi, Who's the Boss, etc.) and Dean Cain (Lois and Clark) in the same seating arrangement. Almost makes up for having no place to store your stuff.
    PS Please someone tell me what happened in the first hour, and remind me who Pinky was...

    PWS, the first hour was mostly clips, with some bits of cast interviews in between. A nice trip down memory lane.

    Pinky Tuscadero was the Fonz's only real *girlfriend*. She had her own motorcycle, and people called her Pinky 'cause she liked pink. She wore shorts with cowboy boots, and did this weird little finger snap in her palm move. And, of course, she's Leather's older sister.

    Someone remind me who Pinky was please...sounds familiar but no image is coming up.
    The hour I saw was great--such a warm and fuzzy feeling from the cast.
    There was an episode where Fonzie was driving in a drag race of some sort (or a demolition derby or something) and Pinkie was the tall beautiful skinny girl who was the starter for the race. She was hit by one of the cars in that episode.
    Hey does anyone remember Fonzie's girlfriend with the little girl Heather?(Played by the deceased Heather O'Rourke) I remember one episode where Heather was hit by a car. That episode made me ball my eyes out. 'Cause I knew that the actress was dead and it was just so sad. Heather O'Rourke was only 12 years old when she died. Too young.

    I've never heard this. I googled but couldn't find anything on it. Henry Winkler seems like such a nice guy - not from his "Fonz" role, but from the things he's done since the show ended. I don't disbelieve that she said it, but unless there's some evidence out there to support it I don't believe it.

    I recall seeing her on some talk show...they went to her home...it looked like a ranch-type house, and she was grooming her horse. Then they went inside, and she started talking about how crummy her homelife was during the filming of Happy Days. She was pretty angry about it, and what I recall her saying was that she was really mad at the other actors for not helping her out of some tough spots at home. Then they cut to a tape of some of the other actors being told about this, and they said they had no idea she had had problems at home. I can't remember who was doing the interviewing, but they then played that tape for Erin, and she admitted she had never told anybody how miserable she was, but still felt they should have known.

    That's what I remember...maybe we saw a different show? But she didn't say anything about Henry Winkler...I got the impression she was talking about her family. I just remember thinking she seemed like she was pretty messed up, and should probably get some counseling. This interview was a long time ago, though.

    The actress was Linda Purl. I don't remember the character name, though.

    Ty for the info val & dagwood. The character name was Ashley Fister. Not sure I spelled the last name right. Too bad about Al Molinaro. (Al) That's so sad. I'm actually doing a 5 mile walk for MS in April. It's my 4th year doing it and my 2nd year doing it as a team (I've got some friends walking with me).

    They did have some clips with Al in them. But it might have been nice to say why he wasn't there, even if it ruined the upbeat mood a bit.... Or maybe "Al" didn't want them to.
    They didn't even bring "Arnold" in until the last 15 seconds which I thought was a shame also.
