Missing in Wisconsin is a popular bronze statue of a famous television star.

"The Fonz" From "Happy Days" Has A Bronze Statue In Milwaukee

In 2008, "The Fonz," a character from the popular TV show, "Happy Days," was immortalized with a bronze statue on the Riverwalk in Milwaukee. The program was set in the Wisconsin city and helped to make it famous. There was a huge celebration to go along with it.

I have been lucky to do many cool things in my life thanks to my job in radio. Attending that event is right up there. I was able to interview "The Fonz" himself, along with "Mrs. C," "Joanie," and "Potsie." It was an amazing day. The funny thing is I never got to see the actual statue because I had to head back to Rockford before the unveiling.
