Is it time for Will to meet Emma's parents?
Glee has cast Don Most and Valerie Mahaffey to play Rusty and Rose Pillsbury, the parents of guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays), TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
The Happy Days cast is decidedly unhappy about not winning the jackpot on merchandise using their likenesses on slot machines, comic books, lunch boxes and other collectibles.
Erin Moran, Donny Most, Marion Ross, Anson Williams and the estate of the late Tom Bosley claim that CBS, which owns the show, hasn't paid them money they're owed under their contracts, CNN reports. Their attorney, Jon Pfeiffer, filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Question: I'm in a bind here. I seem to remember a cartoon version of Happy Days that had Richie, the Fonz and the gang time traveling in a boat. But no one else can recall such a thing. Am I going crazy or did this cartoon really exist?
Answer: I'm tempted to tell you that you are indeed touched in the head and are well on your way to imagining other delusion-spawned shows, like, say, an animated Brady Bunch where Greg, Marsha and the kids run around with two pandas and a magical bird. The thing is, as whacked as those shows sound, Brady Kids and Fonz and the Happy Days Gang really did exist, the latter running on ABC's Saturday-morning schedule from November 1980 to September 1982.
