Why stop there?

I love this idea. Nothing says "Milwaukee" like The Fonz.

Correction, nothing says "Milwaukee" like The Fonz, except for Laverne and Shirley.

Fonzie is a great start, but Milwaukee needs a variety of TV icons placed in bronze on it's streets and other prominent locations (in front of snobbish art galleries in the 3rd Ward, yes!). What a fun diversion for the six tourists that come to the city each year. And as a positive unintended consequence, we may help rid the city of dour,
self important, no sense of humor residents, like these.

There were many great characters on Happy Days, I think the following also deserve their own statues.
  • Richie Cunningham
  • Howie & Marion Cunningham
  • Potsie
  • Ralph Malph
  • Al and Arnold
  • Lenny & Squiggy
  • The Shark
Anyone else from Happy Days and L&S deserve a statue?

Today Happy Days, tomorrow That 70's Show.

Not Donald Gramm, nor Liberace, nor....

Not even a statue of Mr. Harley, Mr. Briggs, Mr. Chalmers...

Yes. Yes. Yes... Any of these would beat the obscene guitar sculpture they are erecting in Waukesha.

I forgot about the Mork connection. Great addition.
