According to the Los Angeles Times, Anson Williams (Potsie), Marion Ross (Mrs. C), Don Most (Ralph Malph), Erin Moran (Joanie) and Patricia Bosley (widow of the late Tom “Mr. C” Bosley) filed a lawsuit alleging that the TV network failed to pass along their share of royalties on sales of products featuring their images.
Products include lunch boxes, t-shirts, board games, greeting cards and even “Happy Days”-themed slot machines. Ayyyy!
“‘Happy Days’ epitomizes what is best in America with the Cunningham family exemplifying the best of what a family can be,” the lawsuit reads. “As will be proven at trial, defendants’ actions epitomize what is worst in Corporate America.”
“We agree that funds are owed to the actors and have been working with them for quite some time to resolve the issue,” the company’s consumer products unit said in a statement.
Sounds like a compromise could be possible. Maybe they can all just step into Fonzie’s office to resolve this?
