Here's what Al from Happy Days was doing after the show ended (1991)

In memory of actor Al Molinaro, who passed away at 96, we take you back to the 90's, when Al was a pitchman for On-Cor frozen dinners.

It's safe to say Molinaro had a full career. The original Odd Couple (he was Murray the Cop) led to his eventually being called in by producer Garry Marshall to replace Pat Morita on Happy Days when Morita left for James Komack's short-lived Mr. T & Tina, and pulled double duty on the spin-off, Joanie Loves Chachi. His last gig of note came when he appeared with Kenosha, Wisconsin homeboys Weezer in the Days tribute video, "Buddy Holly", in 1994.

Rest in peace, Al. The card game is probably waiting for you.
