He spread a lot of joy in his eight and a half decades.

The various Bob Newhart series and the Steve Allen man-in-the-street "interviews" spring to mind most clearly.

I always dug that cat.

I just learned that he was married to Suzanne Pleshette, whom I thought was so hot when I was a kid in the 70's.

Not a bad run, 85 years.

Power to ya, Tom.

Alot of people don't realize that he was the voice of The Capital City Goofball on "The Simpsons"....he also did a ton of voiceover work.....
