No mention of him being "Scrooge" (Mr. Slade) in An American Christmas Carol, 1979? If you have never seen it, you need to. Very good retelling of the story.

"Did you have the magic touch like the Fonz?"

If by "magic touch" you mean IMDB, then, yeah, sure.

15/16; I did not know Fonzie's middle name and guessed wrong.

It was first mentioned in a later episode. Something happened at the garage that could have killed him and he decided he wanted to get baptized (imagine a nice Italian Catholic boy never got baptized!). Al's twin brother, Father Delvecchio, performed the service and Howard and Marion were his godparents...and he was presented to the congregation as Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli...

15/16. I didn't think "Arrested Development" was still airing in 2019.
They did the original 3 seasons on Fox from 2003 to 2006, then they came back and did a season on Netflix in 2013 and fifth on Netflix from 2018 to 2019.

I thought sorry seems to be the hardest word. Wrong!
Yep, I remember the Fonz had one heck of a time trying to say "wrong". It was like pulling teeth! 😂

13 out of 16, although a couple of my right answers were guesses. I didn't really pay much attention to Happy Days when it was on. I also liked Henry Winkler in the more recent comedy created by Rob Corddry, Childrens Hospital.

That was terrible. But I didn't watch it religiously.

Aren't you worried that one of us will swoop in and steal your 'job'? I mean, come can't even use proper grammar or write an actual sentence. The rest of us commenting here CAN. Now who do you think your boss would prefer to have working for him? I'll give you a hint...the correct answer is NOT you! Your mother must be incredibly disappointed in you.

Foreget about that. It's all just a scam anyway.
