Henry Winkler Checks in to Adult Swim's Childrens Hospital

Someone forgot to tell Henry Winkler about typecasting. You'd think after playing one of the most iconic characters of a generation, the Fonz on Happy Days, Winkler would have had some trouble getting new roles. But the parts just keep on coming.

The series, which mercilessly skewers the medical show genre, was created by The Daily Show alum Rob Corddry during the writers' strike of 2007-08, and streamed online at thewb.com in five-minute segments. Now graduated to Cartoon Network's late-night block (where the initial shorts have been airing since July), Hospital begins a run of 12 original, 15-minute episodes on Sunday at 10:30/9:30c.
