It's Christmas and the Cunninghams are all full of festive good cheer. They have a wonderful tree, a warm fire and presents galore and they are justifiably contented.
Fonzie is going to be going out of town to spend Christmas with relatives and he wishes the family a "Merry Christmas" before supposedly heading off on his journey. So why then does Richie find him sitting alone at the garage eating cold food out of a can? When Fonzie realises he has been caught out, he makes excuses about having missed his transport but Richie isn't fooled and the Fonz ends up spending Christmas with his real family - the Cunninghams.
This is a true 'feel good' episode and features an excellent performance by Henry Winkler. One not to be missed.
