    Neither has mine, but she's French, so...OTOH, she does know who Chrissy Snow and Jack Tripper are...

    Born in 79. That's the clue, mate.

    Unless she trolled Nick At Night as a teen, chances are good she never ran across Arthur Fonzarelli. :eek:

    My wife watches King Of The Hill and distinctly can recall the episode "A Rover Runs Through It" where her family was losing their ranch in Montana because Henry Winkler--"The Fonz"---bought the adjacent property. His refusal to yield his road for their use as a cattle trail to move the herd "up in them mountains", along with "all you Hollywood folk" moving in and raising property taxes, were causing them to lose the ranch.

    But has she seen grease?

    Because I have never met a chick that hasn't.

    10 times.

    I know the show ran until the mid 80s. I stopped watching after Richie left. My kids don't know the show. Do realize this show is 40 years old!

    Happy Days ran from 1974 to 1984. I was born in '73 and have seen every episode, multiple times- whether I liked it or not, mostly repeats.

    Arthur Fonzarelli is an Americon Icon, much like Ronald Reagan.

    And don't get me worked-up about Pinky Tuscadero.

    :)
