Cunningham Family Fears - Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard), the editor of the school newspaper decided to do an article on "Why people are afraid of things." on the sitcom HAPPY DAYS/ABC/1974-84.

The Cunningham Family - Richie, Marian, Howard and Joanie - HAPPY DAYS

During a discussion at the kitchen table, each member of the Cunningham family spoke of their own fears.

  • Richie was afraid of flowers (well, just smelling flowers) every since that "bumble bee incident."
  • Marion (Marion Ross), his mother feared taking a shower every since the movie Psycho.
  • Joanie (Erin Moran), his sister was afraid of the Boogie man;
  • Howard (Tom Bosley), Richie's father didn't like worms because they were squishy, (this didn't keep him from enjoying squishy jelly donuts.)

 Later, talking to his pals, Richie discovered his friend Ralph Malph (Donny Most) had some 50 fears, giving him Phobo Phobia (fear of everything.).

To cure his fears of a suspected tornado strike at 6.22 PM that evening, a local scientist hypnotized Ralph to be "brave courageous and bold." See also "The Fonz & Liver"
