Fire! Chachi or Urkel Did It?; Fonz Statue Coming August 19 in Milwaukee; Remembering Mitch Mullany

We are back online! Our server had a fire causing 9,000 servers and 700,000 websites I believe to go offline. We were offline since 6pm ET Saturday and finally came back online 5am ET Monday, but we still did the blog on Sunday, as some of you probably saw on the live feed or one of your news readers. If you didn't, please check yesterday's blog today when you get a chance. Anyway, SitcomsOnline is back and better than ever! This situation is just like a sitcom plot, isn't it? The classic sitcom fire! Arnold's (hangout on Happy Days) and Edna's Edibles (Mrs. Garrett's bakery on Facts of Life) went down and came back with a new look, so why can't we? I think the culprit of this fire could be Chachi or Urkel, I mean they caused Arnold's and Leroy's (the burger joint on Family Matters that later turned into Rachel's Place) to go down, so they have experience in this sort of thing! Seriously, if you want to know what happened really, click HERE.

Back to some real news...
A bronze Fonz statue coming to Milwaukee is finally confirmed! Happy Days stars Henry Winkler (Fonzie), Marion Ross (Mrs. Cunningham), Tom Bosley (Mr. Cunningham), Erin Moran (Joanie), Don Most (Ralph Malph) and Anson Williams (Potsie) will return to Milwaukee on August 19 for the dedication of a bronze Fonzie statue on the RiverWalk in downtown.
Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, stars of the Happy Days spin-off Laverne & Shirley, are also expected to attend, along with both show's creator, director-producer Garry Marshall.

Mitch Mullany is probably not a name you all know by heart. He was a comic. He died May 25 in Los Angeles from a diabetic-related stroke. Mullany started his standup career in the Bay Area in California and then appeared as a recurring character on The Wayans Bros. as White Mike. He starred in his own sitcom Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher, from 1996-98 on The WB. His only other sitcom credit was a guest appearance in 1995 on Hangin' with Mr. Cooper.
In 1999 he wrote and starred in the feature film The Breaks, released by Artisan Ent. He also appeared in the feature film The Sweetest Thing starring Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, and Selma Blair and then he hosted the short-lived ABC reality series All American Girl in 2003.
Mitch Mullany was only 39.
