Wow, The Fonz is still as hip today as he was in his heyday. Well, today may not be this character’s official birthday but it certainly is for the actor who played him. Henry Winkler turns 68 today and he could not look any better. Happy Birthday Henry! You have paved my way to defining what I thought was “cool” ever since Happy Days.
I have throughly enjoyed the television shows you produced over the years, namely MacGyver and Sightings. And you did not even stop with your exploration into the unknown when you became a co-producing partner of the television show Unexplained Mysteries.
But thankfully your time away from the small screen did not mean you wanted to cease acting. I was glad to discover that you would return to television once in a while. But nowadays, I can enjoy new regular shows with you on. Viewers can find Mr. Winkler on Children’s Hospital, playing the role of Sy Mittleman.
