Vulnerabilities - Food

Liver - Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli (Henry Winkler) the ultra-cool garage mechanic on the situation comedy HAPPY DAYS/ABC/1974-84 was just about the toughest guy on the block.

The Fonz at Al's Diner - HAPPY DAYS

But, in the presence of a piece of wet, drippy brown beef liver, the Fonz withdrew in horror much like a vampire in the presence of a crucifix. As he said "I don't like that. I don't eat that. And I don't go out with guys who eat it."

 On episode No. 72 "The Muckrackers" the Fonz's friend Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard) decided to expose Fonzie's phobia of beef liver in a front page story in the school newspaper.

At first, Fonzie asked Richie not to run the story and even resorted to threats, but integrity ridden Richie would not bow to the pressures that would curtail the freedom of the press.

Not the kind of person to let a weakness control him, the Fonz finally got the nerve to eat liver and overcame his fear.

Fonzie also had a hard time admitting he was "wr-wr-wrong." See also  PERFUMES & FRAGRANCES:" Mr. Musk"
