His Bitter Days With “The Happy Days”
Anson and his four more friends who had been a part of the “Happy Days” television series once sued CBS, the only owner of the show, as they allegedly complained that the CBS Network is not paying the due money they deserved for acting in the show. Even the guaranteed cash they should have received is being jammed by the owner, not giving them any payments for their hard work. According to the contract, they must have received at least five percent each from all the show’s profits. After the case went to court, CBS said that all owe nothing but only 9000 dollars each. The case ended, however, with each of the five people receiving 65,000 US dollars each, and along with that, it was made sure that CBS will have to continue to pay them 5% from their total Happy Days merchandise sales.
