The TV icons are even happier to have settled out of court, without a trial, for an undisclosed amount that has the stars singing "Happy Days Are Here Again."
"We have settled our lawsuit with CBS and Paramount," said Jon Pfeiffer, attorney for the actors. "The terms of the settlement are confidential, but we are satisfied with the outcome."
Petitioners in the "Happy Days" lawsuit were actors Marion Ross, 83, Anson Williams, 62, Donny Most, 58, Erin Moran, 51, and the widow of Tom Bosley, Patricia.
Mr. C, Mrs. C, Potsie, Ralph Malph and Joanie Cunningham had filed their lawsuit against show owner CBS, claiming they were owed royalties from the use of their images on DVDs and other products promoting "Happy Days."
After Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White refused to grant CBS a summary judgment motion to dismiss the lawsuit, a trial date was scheduled for July 17th.
The 'Happy Days Trial' has been CANCELED.
"I'm very satisfied with the settlement, and that's all I can say," declared cast member Anson Williams, who played Potsie.
Fonzie, Richie Cunningham, Chachi, Pinky Tuscadero and Leather Tuscadero were not parties to the "Happy Days" lawsuit.
