Not So "Happy Days"

Four "Happy Days" cast members and the estate of one deceased cast member" are suing CBS over royalties they say they have never received, even though the studio has licensed their images for comic books, apparel, dolls, and most significantly, casino games. Erin Moran ("Joanie"), Marion Ross ("Mrs. Cunningham") Don Most ("Ralph Malph"), Anson Williams ("Potsie") and the estate of Tom Bosley ("Mr. Cunningham") have filed suit over what they allege is millions in revenue the studio should have paid, but has not. The actors say this failure to pay for the use of their images is systemic in the industry.
