Joanie Louise Cunningham Arcola is a fictional character, played in an episode of the anthology series Love, American Style by Susan Neher and on the sitcoms Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi by Erin Moran. She was the daughter of Howard and Marion Cunningham, and the younger sister of Chuck Cunningham and Richie Cunningham. Chachi had a crush on her, and they moved off together into the spin-off show Joanie Loves Chachi. Later, after Joanie Loves Chachi was cancelled, she and Chachi returned to Happy Days and eventually married in the series finale.

Fonzie affectionately referred to her as "Shortcake."
