Fonze statue to be unveiled this week in Milwaukee

It's being called a "celebration of cool."

The statue known as the "Bronze Fonz" will be unveiled in Milwaukee this week, when TV character Fonzie from "Happy Days" is immortalized.

Dave Fantle from Visit Milwaukee.org says characters from the late '70s, early '80s television sitcom joining the celebration include Mr. and Mrs. C, Joanie, Potsie, Ralph Malph, Laverne, Shirley, and "Happy Days" creator Garry Marshall.

Richie Cunningham -- superstar movie producer Ron Howard -- will be there via video tape.

Fantle says the show with a positive message set in the '50s has a sort of "timeless innocence" about it.

The celebration to unveil the bronze fonz takes place Tuesday.
