From Variety:

"Happy Days" are here again at ABC.



Alphabet has given the thumbs up -- Heyyyyyy! -- to "The Happy Days 30," a two-hour reunion special marking the 30th anniversary of Garry Marshall's classic laffer. All of the show's original cast -- including Ron Howard (Richie) and Henry Winkler (the Fonz) -- have signed on to appear in the special, which Winkler will exec produce with Michael Levitt.


No airdate has been set, though special seems a natural for a sweeps appearance, possibly as soon as November.


Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, aka "Laverne & Shirley," also will take part in the reunion. And, in a "Happy Days" first, Gavin O'Herlihy and Randolph Roberts -- the two actors who played long-lost Cunningham sibling Chuck -- will appear together on the same show.


Also set to appear: Garry Marshall, Tom Bosley, Marion Ross, Erin Moran, Anson Williams, Don Most, Scott Baio, Pat Morita, Crystal Bernard, Linda Purl and Cathy Silvers.


"It was an absolute no-brainer," said ABC alternative topper Andrea Wong. "We've wanted to do this for a long time, and Henry Winkler recently called up and said the whole cast is willing to do it."


In addition to the usual assortment of clips and interviews, "Happy Days 30" will feature footage from a cast/crew softball game to be played this weekend (Sept 11). Tradition was initiated by Marshall 30 years ago to foster a sense of family on the set; highlights from the game will help introduce clips.


The games "were so much a part of our culture that we felt it would be a great centerpiece for the reunion," Winkler told Daily Variety.


Winkler said the softball games grew so big that the "Happy Days" gang began playing games for charity, even taking their softball act on the road.


"We played for the troops in Germany and Okinawa," he said. "We just moved as a unit. Garry felt that it could not help but make the team that worked together on the show stronger."


Winkler and Levitt, who teamed to produce the final two seasons of the recent "Hollywood Squares" revival, are also set to produce CBS' upcoming "Dallas" reunion.


Another portion of the special will be shot in front of a studio audience at CBS Television City, where the original series was produced.


"Happy Days" bowed in January 1974 and ran for 11 seasons, exiting ABC's sked in 1984. It gave birth to three spinoffs: "Laverne & Shirley," "Mork & Mindy" and "Joanie Loves Chachi."


In addition to Winkler and Levitt, Greg Sills will serve as supervising producer for the special, with Gary Tellalian, Fred Fox and Stephen Pouliot onboard as producers. Linda Mendoza will direct.

This reunion sounds great -- it looks like they've really tried to bring everybody back. A few names are missing, though. I would really like to see Lynda Goodfriend and Al Molinaro (although he's 85 now, so maybe he's not well enough to participate).

Can't believe they managed to snag BOTH Chucks!

I don't think Al Molinaro has been in anything since his 1992 appearance on Step by Step. Ted McGinley is also missing. I'm guessing he will be busy working on Hope & Faith.

Oh yeah -- never even noticed that Ted's name was missing from the list. Billy Warlock, too (not that I'm fussed about that).

Would also be nice if the Tuscadaro gals would show up -- maybe they could come with the Malachis.

Great line-up, though. Wonder if the special will be included as an extra on a future DVD release.

I just found out McGinley will be at the softball game (since ABC is having their Primetime Preview Weekend at Disney Sept. 10-12), but no idea about the reunion taping.

He was in the Weezer video ('95).

So is the special they are taping (apparently today) going to be just like a cast/crew reunion, or will it be an actual episode as Fonzi and Richie, etc. I mean, will the show be as characters or actors?

So does anyone know if the show will be just actor interviews with a look back or if it will actually be an episode as characters?
