Ron Howard Then
If you’ve seen even just one episode of Happy Days, you caught a glimpse of Ron Howard’s character Richie Cunningham. He was the red-haired, freckled teen who was always trying to find a date.
Cunningham was an incredibly likable guy who always tried to do right by his family and friends — a common theme on the show.
Before Happy Days, Howard was already pretty famous for his role on The Andy Griffith Show where he played the equally adorable Opie Taylor.
