The Fonz is an American television character who originated in ""Happy Days"" as an irreverent, tough-talking usher. The character's popularity grew over the course of the television show, especially after he acquired his trademark leather jacket, and led to other merchandise such as dolls, lunchboxes, comic books and breakfast cereals. The character also appeared in the series finale of the show, entitled ""One Last Fling".

Despite his aloofness, Fonzie had more whimsical traits, such as a devotion to the Lone Ranger, whom he excitedly meets in an episode (played by John Hart). While confident with women, he blushed whenever Marion ("Mrs. C." to Fonzie), who became like a surrogate mother to him, kissed him on the cheek. She was the only person Fonzie allowed to address him by his first name, Arthur, which she always did affectionately. Richie's sister Joanie also became attached to Fonzie; his pet name for her was "Shortcake." In one episode, when it is revealed that Fonzie had never been christened as a baby, the Cunninghams stood by him at church so that he could finally be christened. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
