I'm thinking Billy(if they even asked him) had prior commitments, from what I've read, he was doing a play in New York. He recently left General Hospital(idiots let him go )

He's such a great actor too

It was "That '50s Show," really. In 1974, movies like American Graffiti and Grease set off a '50s nostalgia boom, and ABC rushed out a series that revived doo-wop during the decade of disco. They had no idea its popularity would stretch right into the era of hair bands. Now, the original cast reunites for the Happy Days 30th Anniversary Reunion Special (airing Thursday, Feb. 3 at 8 pm/ET, on ABC). Here are some exclusive behind-the-scenes anecdotes they shared with TV Guide.

How it all began
Anson Williams (Potsie): We had done a pilot that didn't sell, which aired on Love, American Style. Tom [Bosley] and Erin [Moran] weren't in it. The parts of Fonzie and Ralph weren't there. Then, a year later, American Graffiti came out. Once that became a hit, ABC said, "Hey, didn't we have a show like that? Let's do another pilot."

Henry Winkler (Fonzie): You didn't even imagine then that any of what happened to us would happen. When we went on the air, we were No. 48 in the ratings. Everything that the show experienced was a surprise.

Backstage pass
Erin Moran (Joanie Cunningham): My first day on the job, Tom, Marion, Ron and I were in the hall of the Cunningham house, waiting to do our first scene. I knew who Ron Howard was and I was so nervous. He recognized that and said, "Would you like a piece of gum?" I said yes. That set the mood. It was so sweet and a good way to deal with a scared 12-year-old.

Marion Ross (Mrs. Cunningham): We'd sit together an hour before the show. Tom would be saying something to one of the boys and then say, "You know your mother said..." And I'd have to go, "Tom, I'm not his mother!" For a moment, you'd forget the characters weren't real.

Moran: Marion and Tom were almost like real parents. They were very open and honest about whether they liked a guy [I was dating] or not. Right before I turned 18, I met a motorcycle cop, and nobody liked this guy. They were adults and knew darn well he wasn't good for me. And, turns out they were right.

Bigger than the Beatles?
Don Most (Ralph): Henry and I were making an appearance in Paramus, N.J., and thousands of teenagers were there, a lot of whom were girls. We were supposed to sign autographs, and the police couldn't control the crowd. All of a sudden, it was getting scary and the police said, "We have to get you out of here." There was this fountain behind us that was the only way out. So we climbed up it in our clothes to get away from the madness. They whisked us away, made us lie down in the car, used a decoy limousine. And suddenly I thought, "OK, something is going on here that's a bit different."

Ron Howard (Richie): I remember I had a hat that was particularly precious to me. I thought it was my lucky hat. We were surrounded by this big mob once, and it got ripped off my head. I chased the guy down and got it back before we jumped into a limo to get away. It was like a scene from the Beatles movie Help! I thought at that moment, "I have to be a director. They don't get chased down streets."

Aaaay!
Winkler: People connected with the Fonz at age 3. I'd get little children coming up to me, who knew nothing about the world, and giving me the thumbs-up.

Moran: In the middle of being the No. 1 show, I did an interview on the set, and the interviewer said, "Do you know how big this show is?" I said, "Yeah. Sure." Then he said, "Do you know what the two most popular words in the world are?" I said, "Hi, mom." He said, "No, it's 'the Fonz.'"

Williams: Even when Henry was the No. 1 star in the world, he kept the same crappy green dressing room. He never changed. He was so opposite to the character, a sensitive and sweet guy.

Play ball!
Most: The Happy Days softball team started off when Ron and I joined a serious softball league and we brought Henry in. Garry [Marshall, the series executive producer/writer] loved to play ball and saw we were doing this. So he created a team with the whole cast and had us do charity games. I think Gary saw this as a way to get us more bonded than we already were. It grew to the point where we started going on the road to play in Wrigley Field and Shea Stadium in New York.

Ross: On a Monday morning, there was so much baseball talk we could barely get through the script.

Howard: The most exciting game we played was in the old Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. There was a packed crowd, an absolute sellout. We were playing against a bunch of celebrities from a local sports station, and some ex-athletes. We were leading 2-1, and they had two runners on and two outs in the last inning. Hal Greer, the former 76ers guard, hit a long fly ball high in left to me, and I heard the whole crowd going crazy. I was sweating it out, saying to myself, "Drop it and you look like a horse's ass." But I caught it! It was a great moment! We expected to get killed in this game. It felt so rewarding. I'd compare it to the first couple of times the show cracked No. 1.

For more Happy Days memories, pick up a copy of this week's magazine, on newsstands Thursday.
