This is popular because of the TV character. It is a good likeness, or even a remotely good piece of art. More like kitsch. That being said, if you are in the neighborhood, and you like kitsch, why not?

No trip to Milwaukee's RiverWalk is complete without a selfie with the Fonz. Famous from the 1970's TV show "Happy Day's" Fonzie has been a fixture on Milwaukee's Riverwalk across the river from the Rock Bottom Brewery for years.

A must if you are a Happy Days/ Henry Winkler fan. It is a simple statue but displays the characteristics of the Fonz. Good photo opportunity!

This doesn't look like Henry Winkler and it is lucky I knew what the statute was referencing. I guess I know why Milwaukee thought this was a good idea - no, actually I don't.

what more is there to say! It's a must stop for a selfie, which is pretty easy to do with it being right on the Riverwalk.

Since the show was supposed to be set in Milwaukee, a local group raised the funds and commissioned the ":Bronze Fonz" replica statue, which sits along Milwaukee's river... More

Get a selfie - this is the most fun you will have in Milwaukee! Post on FaceBook or Instagram. All your friends will know where you have been when they see you with The Fonz.

We were talking a walk and came upon the Happy Days Fonzie. It's a nice tribute but he has a goofy look on his face. Interesting to see if your in the area but don't think I would travel just to see this.

Do you like Happy Days? Do you think Fonzie is the coolest? This is a great photo op. Definitely need to give a thumbs up for the picture. Yea, we're all huge dorks but we also got a great group photo.
