1 review about The Truth About Fonzie

A pleasurable recapitulation of one of the best characters ever on television

  • Jan 29, 2010
"Happy Days" is one of the few television shows that I ever developed a strong affection for, so when this book first came out I had to read it. Henry Winkler made the character of Fonzie a household word; he was cool and made it cool to be cool. Now the book would have almost no appeal outside of people that remember the seventies, my teenage daughter has no idea what the word "Fonzie" means.
Winkler made the character attractive to all, "Fonzie" was a guy from hard times, a high-school dropout working as a mechanic. He was a tough guy, yet the most attractive feature was the softness. When the character of Mrs. Cunningham called him Arthur and then kissed him on the cheek, "Fonzie" would twist his head slightly and appear to blush in happiness.
One of the most memorable characters in television, "Fonzie" was easy to idolize and emulate. Reading this book was a trip back in time for me, I still consider "Happy Days" to be one of the best shows ever on television.
