Fonzie, Fonzie, He's Our Man

Fake Happy Days for your turntable!

"Fonzie for President!" "Fonzie, Won't You Please Be Mine?" "Do The Fonz!" Those are just three of the song titles on this crass 1976 release from London records designed to cash in at the expense of consumers in love with Happy Days -- as long as they weren't too particular about the authenticity of their music. He's Our Man, ostensibly by "The Heyettes", is basically a one-joke album extended to 11 songs filled with every imaginable reference to the television show. Of course, none of it is performed by, authorized by, or even remotely connected with anyone from the actual show. Whether they thought people would be fooled, or just didn't care, isn't particularly clear, but I figure anything was possible in 1976.

"The Fonz Song" appears to have been the biggest hit here. If after listening to this you really want to hear "Do The Fonz" or "Arnold's Theme", then all I can tell you is, "Sit On It".

I have a song titles "Cruisin' with the Fonz" by a group called R.B Zipper (1976 Alaska 2004) But differs a lot from the Pratt & Mcclain. written by Bruce Woolley,Rodney Thompson, and A. Finkelman. Lyrics are comical: "Hey look everybody, here comes the fonz. Hes tough good looking and his hair is just right, he love to cruise on his motorbike, he'll show you things, you wouldn't learn in school, He's the Fonz, he's super cool :) (12-29-2001)

moogyboy (billys@netwalk.com) says:
Potsie's right! That lp was one of the ones I grew up with (my brothers had a copy of it). It was called something like "Fonzie's Favorites" on Juke Box Records, and was mostly a compilation of fifties hits ("Splish Splash," "Rock Around The Clock," "Tears On My Pillow," etc.). The included non-50s goodies were: 1) the "Happy Days" theme (the real thing!); 2) "The Fonzarelli Slide," a bizarre concoction fusing The Fonz, Welcome Back Kotter, Laverne & Shirley (just a pinch), and disco; 3) the very same "Fonz Song" heard above, and 4) "Impressionist's Track" which is basically our Fonzie impersonator spouting his catch-phrases over a tape loop of the instrumental break from the "Happy Days" theme. Weird! Were these also on the London lp? If not, then "Fonzie's Favorites" is worth finding for the rest of the story!

The cover (suitable for framing) even had a built-in fold-out stand.

I think this might have been one of those TV-advertised albums so popular back then, although how many actually gave you bonuses like these?

Interesting parenthetical story: about ten years ago, this same brother who owned that lp back in the '70s visited a Hills department store and found a dozen unopened, mint copies of "Fonzie's Favorites" for $0.99 apiece, and bought every last one. Twilight zone... (07-17-2001)

Roman Pativ says:
The weird thing to me about the Fonzie mania was that Henry Winkler was totally miscast in the role. I mean, get real. The guy looks like a whimpy, fagotty ass actor-boy. He was probably running around in tights doing Shakespeare before he got that Happy Days role. In the Italian neighborhood where I grew up someone like The Fonz wudda got beat on a regular basis.
