Happy Days' Al Molinaro Dead at 96

Yepppp, yep, yep, yep.

Al Molinaro, who is well-remembered for his runs as both Happy Days drive-in owner Al and the original Odd Couple‘s Murray the Cop, died on Thursday at age 96.

Molinaro’s son Michael told TMZ that the actor had suffered from bad gall stones.

In addition to his decade-long run on Happy Days and five years as Murray, Molinaro’s TV credits included the Happy Days spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi, Get Smart, the short-lived CBS sitcom The Family Man and episodes of Punky Brewster and Step by Step.

    I remember him starting with ‘The Odd Couple’. Sorry to hear he’s passed but happy he lived such a long life and was beloved by many a TV viewer.
