Gingers unite! Ron Howard reunites with his on-screen <i>Happy Days</i> mother

Ron Howard might be missing his trademark red hair these days, but his Happy Days on-screen mum Marion Ross sure isn't! Look at that hair!

Ron, now a world-renowned director, played Richie, while Marion was iconic as Mrs Cunningham. The pair met up on Monday night for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' 22nd Annual Hall of Fame Induction Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Marion is now 84, but that didn't slow her down. The TV mum and son hugged it out for the cameras, clearly delighted to be seen together again.

Check out some pics from yesteryear below! They've changed a lot, but you can still pick 'em!
