The only person I ever remember actually seeing Fonz hit was Howard. (Howard was facing the other way and Fonzie thought he was a low life older guy who was dating Joanie). In Mother and Child Reunion, Fonzie asks a trucker to step outside, and when they do you don't actually see what happens but when the two come back in the trucker passes out cold and Fonzie's fine. It is implied that Fonzie hit him. Other than that, I can only remember Fonzie acting tough and the other guy usually backs down. Although during that fight in the gym (which was acutally Richie's fight where he asked Fonz not to step in) Fonzie did some weird flying kick to some guy's chest I believe.

I just watched that episode when Fonzie did some flying kick with Carmine from Laverne and Shirley. All they did was kick their feet up in the air-they never touched the REd Devils

I think they didnt want to show Fonzie fight:

1.) because the network was already weary of his 'gang appeal and toughness' and didnt want to act out on it.
2.) he was a role model to kids.

Oh yeah, that's right. So does that mean the only person we ever actually saw Fonzie hit during the history of the show was Howard ??? That's pretty funny.

Default Fight the fight

How about the episode were Fonzie fights a guy at the diner that he believes he found his mother at. He fought a trucker in that episode but is was off camera in the kitchen. Then the trucker comes out and then falls to the ground.

If you're taling about punch for punch, as mentioned above, Fonzie does punch out Howard in the episode where Joanie is dating Marion's ex.

When Fonzie is acting dean at the school, he is at a hearing at the school whether he punched out the studend or not. Through one of the points of view, Fonzie punches out a student. But that was just filmed for that person's perspective on the way it happened.

When Chachi is boxing to impress Fonzie and breaks his hand when someone opens a door where Chachi is shadow boxing, during the fight, the towel is thrown in but Chachi's apponent won't stop, so Fonzie jumps into the ring and knocks the guy out in one punch.

Off camera again, Fonzie went out into the parking lot and cleaned Bernie's clock in the episode where the shrink suggests that Fonzie build birdhouses to work out his agressions.

I can think of one "fight" Fonzie had that was on camra...but the whole thing is, Fonzie never touched the guy...and still won!

I don't remember the name of the eposode, but it's the one where that one guy comes back to get back at Fonzie for pushing him off the swing in second grade or something like that...Fonzie wants to fight him but he's given up fighting...so instead he just dodges until the guy gets tired, lets him have one shot at him and gets knocked through the window...then walks back in without a scrach.

I remember it because it's one of my favrete eposodes and the only time I've ever actully *seen* Fonzie fight.

At the beginning of the episode where Chachi enters the city boxing championship (#239- Glove Story), the Fonz "rumbles" with the Bondini brothers - mostly he just grabs their arms and rolls backwards and flips them, then they hang their heads in shame and say that they will get him next year. (kinda pathetic, I know)

Hmmm....didn't Fonzie fight in the ep where Kat Mandu comes to town? I remember Father Delvecchio asked him not to fight until a certain time, but afterwards, I was thinking Fonzie fought those creepy guys.

I was thinking there were some shots of Fonzie with his gang kicking @$$ somewhere.....

I think what made Fonzie cool, was that he didn't have to fight. Everyone knew his reputation and didn't risk getting him worked up enough to fight. He was confident enough with who he was not to have to fight someone who didn't want to fight him (that would have made him a bully and hated-- rather than adored-- by millions). His whole persona served as a role model to kids, and the execs didn't want to push that fighting was cool. Now, Richie had to stand up for himself because a) he would be a coward if someone else (Fonzie) fought all his battles, and b) he would be a coward if he continually allowed others to push him around. The show's just making 2 very distinct points as illustrated by the characters of Richie and Fonzie. So, I don't know if it's fair to label one as cooler than the other, though opinions will certainly fluctuate.

You're right. I don't remember which ep it was but there where some guys that were ready to fight the Fonz. Fonzie told the one guy that he saved his brother's life.
Fonzie: "I'm Arthur Fonzarelli. I saved your brother's life."
Guy: "How did you save my brother's life?"
Fonzie: "I stopped hitting him."
Guy: "Oh, that Arthur Fonzarelli."

Yep , that was the ep where Roger became principal of Patton High and the students were harrassing him. Fonzie became super jealous that the school board hired Roger instead of him and spent the entire ep telling Roger how inadaquate he was. Then, just as a group of students were about to pound Roger in the end, Fonzie walked in and the kids scattered like hens.

BTW, we see Scott Baio's older brother in this ep. I think it's interesting how Patton High's "high school students" appear to be in their 30's.
