Famed director and producer Garry Marshall has died. He was 81 years old. Marshall, who created some of the most popular 1970's TV shows -- including "Mork and Mindy" and "Happy Days," and directed hit films like "Pretty Woman" and"The Princess Diaries" -- died Tuesday in a Burbank hospital, his publicist Michelle Bega confirmed.


He passed due to pneumonia after a stroke.

He adapted the play "The Odd Couple" for TV in 1970 and created "Happy Days" in 1977.


After "Happy Days," Marshall created spin-off shows "Laverne and Shirley," starring his sister Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, and "Mork and Mindy," which jump started Robin Williams' extensive career.

I'm not religious( Well it's in the back of my mind ). And granted those that have left were due. Rapture comes to mind. But Garry Marshall was my happy childhood😊

Mork and Mindy was my favorite. I was barely in elementary school. 😊
