Fonzie Eats a Can of Ravioli Over a Hot Plate. (Christmas Classic)

21 Dec

Christmas is a time of traditions. And nothing is more of a tradition here at Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride than this Christmas episode of Happy Days. And for the Grinch among you, who think this is just an excuse for me to post a rerun, that’s simply not true. This marks the sixth time I’m posting this and it is all because, year in and year out, this is one of my most searched and most viewed posts during the holiday season.  

New meme for the 2017 season!

From December 24, 2010

I can’t let the holiday go by without everyone’s favorite 30 year-old teenager, the Fonz, making an appearance. You can have your Frosty and your Rudolph, this is my TV yuletide.

This is a classic piece of Christmastime must-see television around my house. (I’m sure that says a lot about my house. We also love Godzilla at Thanksgiving. It’s a bit hard to fit in the oven but trust me, it tastes delicious.)  In this clip from the early days of Happy Days, everyone is getting ready for Christmas, except poor Fonzie, who has nowhere to go. This was before Fonzie moved in above the Cunningham’s and he was going to spend a lonely holiday in his garage. Watch as The Fonz sits on a greasy toolbox, heats up a can of ravioli on a hot plate, and sets out a pathetic little holiday card for company. Were the Aloha Pussycats out-of-town? Where was Paula Petralunga? And what about the Hooper triplets, Pinky Tuscadero, or a dozen loose cheerleaders? Ponder that as you watch with someone you love.

Merry Christmas! The Editors and Staff of Mr. Blog’s Tepid ride don’t care if you’ve been naughty or nice, we appreciate all of our readers. These are some awesome pictures from one particular house in Brooklyn. There is one house in Dyker Heights that is so well-known that it has its own special on PBS. This isn’t that house, this is one that I think is even better. Actually, it is three houses who get together and make one amazing display for charity. Enjoy!
