NEWS BRIEF: Happier Days
Posted on Aug. 17, 2012

Several of the cast members of the popular 70s show told CBS to “sit on it” after they discovered the existence of a “Happy Days”-themed slot machine. It seems that CBS had not been paying royalties for use of the actors’ images. Yahoo! News reported that the case settled in early July with payments to each of the actors for about $60,000. To make your day happier–or not–the Smithsonian has switched the display Fonzie’s jacket for Farrah Fawcett’s red bathing suit.

Williams v. CBS, Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. BC459841.
