There is only one teenager that comes close to Archie Andrews in defining what the all American Teenager looked and acted like during the 1950's and that is Richie Cunningham. Part of the original MEGO CORP line up, the gang from Happy days resonated with 2 generations separated by twenty years. Kids from the 1970's still have this show in high rotation on television channels across the nation.

Richie Cunningham from MEGO CORP.

Richie Cunningham was the quintessential example of the All-American, 1950s teenager. He was exceedingly wholesome and, with his red hair and freckles, he bore more than a passing resemblance to Howdy Doody (as noted in the episode “The Howdy Doody Show”). Occasionally he got into trouble, usually in some scheme designed to attract women, but he did not seem to have a malicious bone in his body.

Many of the episodes revolved around Richie’s attempts to pick up women, and there was little that the clean-cut teen would not do to land a date. If buying a new car or joining a local gang was what it took, Richie was ready and willing to give it a shot. Whenever he was feeling particularly lucky—especially when he spotted a prospective girlfriend—he would sing Fats Domino’s, “I found my thrill … on Blueberry Hill.” On the occasions that he would become angry or annoyed, he would call any nemesis “bucko,” even going as far as calling Fonzie this on several occasions.
