End Scene

Goodbye to a generation of memories...



Farewell to Kolchak, who stalks the night no more...



The faces that were staples of my childhood TV are fading away...



It's time for the old man to collect his major award...


Darrin McGavin, 1922-2006


I wonder if he would have made it big in today's plastic perfect Hollywood...


Don Knotts, 1924-2006

I know, to most he'll always be Barney Fife...



But, for me and my siblings, he'll always be Mr. Chicken...



Or the heroic Mr. Limpet...



Time to go, Mr. Limpet, Ladyfish is waiting...


Rest well, gentlemen. Be at peace.

To this day if "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" comes on I HAVE to watch it. He was the ultimate comedic actor - a true original. As clumsy and dense as some of his characters were, he always imbued them with a humanity and humility that is missing from so many of today’s "silly" actors.

Somebody had to say it. RIP

And I'm really going to miss Mr. Furley. And McCloud. Sheesh, make it stop!
