Actor Henry Winkler has unveiled a statue of his iconic Happy Days character Arthur "Fonz" Fonzarelli in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The bronze Fonz sports a trademark black leather jacket and slicked back hair, and strikes the character's classic two thumbs up pose.
Winkler told the crowd: "To see it in real life and that it exists it's just unbelievable. It really is."
The series was set in Milwaukee, although it was filmed in California.
The unflappable Fonz was the most iconic character in the long-running sitcom, which centred on the life of the middle-class Cunningham family.
Other members of the cast present at the unveiling included Anson Williams (Potsie), Don Most (Ralph), Marion Ross (Mrs Cunningham), Tom Bosley (Mr Cunningham) and Erin Moran (Joanie).
Film director Ron Howard, who played straight-laced Richie Cunningham, was unable to attend as he was on location.
