Horshack - A "very old and respected name" which meant "The cattle are dying."

Ron Palillo as Arnold Horshack - WELCOME BACK, KOTTER

This unusual last name belonged to an even stranger young man named Arnold Dingfelder Horshack (Ron Palillo), a member of a gang of hoodlums (The Sweathogs) who wandered the halls of Brooklyn's James Buchanan High School on the sitcom WELCOME BACK, KOTTER/ABC/1975-79.

His favorite expression was the annoying declaration "Ooh, ooh!" when he wanted to get his teacher's attention.

TRIVIA NOTE: On the sitcom LAVERNE & SHIRLEY/ABC/1976-83, Lenny Kosnowski's (Michael McKean) last name in English means "Help there is a hog in my kitchen."
