He may have found fame as ‘The Fonz’ in the iconic 70s show Happy Days but decades on Henry Winkler has shown he’s still got the moves after posting a video on TikTok of him and his three grandchildren dancing to a remix of the Pussycat Dolls’ song “When I Grow Up.”

In the 15-second clip, the kids stand in a line before their grandfather, spinning away from the camera as Winkler struts out of the frame as the beat dropped. The group then hopped back in front of the camera to jump and dance as the music continued. Winkler captioned the video, “My grandchildren”.

The video marks the debut of his grandchildren on the social media platform since Winkler joined TikTok in November 2020. In a 2014 interview with Parade, the Happy Days star revealed his grandchildren were not aware of his fame or that he was an actor.

“They’re too young. They know me only as Papa!” he said.

Since joining the platform Winkler has posted a number of lighthearted videos dancing around his house and spending time with his dogs.

It’s not the first time the 76-year-old has shown off his dance moves for his fans, in 2019 he proved he’s still got the moves when he stepped onto the stage of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a spur of the moment performance of his iconic ‘Fonz dance’.

Winkler rose to fame as Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli on the American television series Happy Days. Following his run on Happy Days Winkler established himself as a character actor in roles such as Arthur Himbry in Scream, Coach Klein in Adam Sandler’s The Waterboy, Dr. Stewart Barnes in Out of Practice, Barry Zuckerkorn in Arrested Development, Uncle Joe in The French Dispatch, and Gene Cousineau in Barry. He has received seven Primetime Emmy nominations (winning one), five Daytime Emmy nominations (winning two), six Golden Globe nominations (winning two), two Critics Choice Award nominations (winning one), and four Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations.
