On the 30th anniversary special, Ron Howard said that he told Garry Marshall that if the name was changed to Fonzie's Happy Days, he wanted to leave the show.

I've also heard rumors that ABC president Fred Silverman wanted to spin Fonzie off into his own show, but Winkler nixed the idea, feeling that Fonzie was born on Happy Days and that's where he belonged.
