Heart Is Marion Cunningham The Top TV Mom of All Time?

Oh, happy days. A perfect name for a perfect show, Happy Days showed us what it was like to be in high school in the days of Ford Fairlanes and poodle skirts. And when you have bad boys like "The Fonz" having a negative (but still so wholesome by today's standards) influence on your boy Ritchie, you'd better hope your motherly skills are top notch. And if you were Marion Cunningham, you had nothing to worry about!

Marion ran a tight ship and a tidy house. The kitchen was always clean, the living room could pass the white glove test, and if anyone stopped by unexpectedly Marion always had here nicest close on. Everyone’s favorite mom, Marion takes us back to simpler times where a good meal and sound advice can solve any crisis in under 30 minutes. Marion is known for her witty comments, raising wholesome kids and even dancing with the FONZ. She is the mom every kids wants to have.

Wow.

I do agree, though, that Marion certainly is one of the best television mothers of all time.

Marion was a great mom, but she didn't take any crap from Howie if he went overboard.

My favorite HD outtake is one where Marion comes down the steps from Fonzie's apartment, adjusts her hair and blouse and blows Fonzie an affectionate kiss.

Marion to me was also (dare I say it? ) quite sexy in her own way as well. Howard was one lucky man.

Marion was definitely one of the top TV moms of all time.

I think Henry Winkler would agree with you. He had the hots for Marion Ross. There's an outtake which demonstrates this -- it was shown on the first HD reunion special in 1992.

IMHO...she played much better characters on "Gilmore Girls"..."The 70s Show"...and any other show where she gets to play Evil Marion Ross...along with Chloris Leachman she is enjoying a great second career where she is stealing the show.

I always thought the scenes where she & Howard were "getting frisky" were very believable. I think Howard and Marion liked doing the "wild thing." She had that twinkle in her eyes whenever they were about to go upstairs.
