HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

While a reunion with Penny Marshall can no longer happen, the other cast members are open to it, even in an informal fashion.

At the Emmy Awards earlier this year former “Happy Days” castmates Henry Winkler and Ron Howard reunited. They took a photograph together and posted it on Twitter.

Their followers were delighted to see them together again. In the picture, they are both grinning broadly, and in the caption, they refer to each other as pals.
