Cool cat The Fonz is 'just as nice as pie'

HE was the coolest cat in America for years, but seems to spend more time filming in Yorkshire than Hollywood these days – and last week ‘The Fonz’ was out and about in Dewsbury.

Henry Winkler took time out from shooting a new Christmas special in the town centre to pose for a picture with Kirklees employee Brendan Cummins.

Former Batley and Dewsbury Celtic rugby player Brendan said The Fonz – star of the American TV hit series Happy Days – was as nice as pie.

“He just came over, chatted and couldn’t have been nicer,” said Brendan. “There were tv trucks and cameras all over – it seemed like a big operation. He explained they were shooting for a children’s Christmas film from a character he helped create.”

Mr Winkler is making a 90-minute feature-length special inspired by the book series Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Underachiever, which he wrote with Lin Oliver.

The film, Hank Zipzer’s Christmas Catastrophe, is a CBBC production.
