Henry Fonda, stands at over 6 feet tall and weighs in at 170 lbs. He’s got Winkler beat here. In Fort Apache (1948) Fonda, as Lt. Col. Owen Thursday went toe-to-toe with Big John Wayne. Fonda was known to be modest, and self-effacing but could also be steadfast. This last trait will give him the edge. Considering his size advantage and discipline, I pick Fonda for the win in the ring and on the streets.
Henry Winker is a little over 5’ 5” and weighs in at 127 lbs. It seems Fonda has the edge. Winkler was the Fonz. If he manages to hit Fonda with his elbow Rock Around the Clock will probably start playing out of his ears. In the ring, with its strict rules, it looks like Fonda has the edge but on the streets where there are no rules, and use of the elbow is encouraged, my money is on Henry “the Fonz” Winkler!
Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli, known as Fonzie or the Fonz is one of only two characters, the other being Richie Cunningham, to appear in all 255 episodes of Happy Days. He wears a leather jacket and rides a motorcycle, however, Winkler crashed the bike on day one of shooting and so whenever we see Fonz on a bike, it’s being pulled along on top of a skateboard. In the show Fonz is depicted as extremely tough, knowling martial arts and capable of seeing off formidable opponents. In the first season, producers thought he may appear too tough and so switched out his leather jacket for a gray windbreaker. He was only allowed the leather when standing next to his motorcycle. Henry Fonda was tough in real life. In WW2, not wanting to seem like a Hollywood phony, Fonda signed up to the United States Navy and took part in D-Day. He reached the rank of Lieutenant before being age-discharged. He was 37 when he enlisted!
