The Fifties Family In 1974, one of our favourite TV families was introduced to America. They were the Cunninghams...and surrounding them were a slew of high school friends, family, and a very special greaser named the Fonz who would become America's favourite heartthrob and a TV phenomenon. Originally rejected by the networks, 'Happy Days' struck gold after '50's nostalgia swept the nation, sparked by the film 'American Graffiti' and the musical 'Grease'. It would become an American television icon.
