The Fonz does Tchaikovsky

It's the 40th anniversary of the first episode of Happy Days - here's a classic moment, literally.

Happy Days first arrived on television screens on 15 January 1974 and ran for ten years.

Set in Milwaukee during the 1950s the series revolved around Richie Cunningham - played by Ron Howard - and his friend, the high school dropout, biker and ladies' man Arthur "Fonzie"/"The Fonz" Fonzarelli, played by Henry Winkler. 

You might be thinking that Happy Days was all about Rock'n'Roll and there was little scope for classical music. Well, to celebrate Happy Days' 40th birthday, take a look at this extraordinary dream sequence where Fonzie becomes Tchaikovsky!
