"Name something people take to the bath with them besides soap and a towel?"

"A duck"

What was even funnier is that it was worth 11 points.

I guess now he'll find out if all that evolution stuff was true, or if he's got a front-row seat in a classroom with SATAN.

To me he was a guest star on The Odd Couple.

I liked him.

"September" was possibly the funniest moment in TV history. You'll be missed, Richard. Have a martini or twelve in heaven.

There was a Predict a Celebrity Death thread on TFD. I said Richard Dawson, or one of the Family
Feud hosts, because the Hatfields & McCoys had just been on History Channel.

Huh.

EllenTheBad: I literally ran into Richard Dawson on the studio lot where he was shooting The Running Man. I was rounding the corner of the sound stage on my way to the copy center and came upon Dawson and a young fan posing for a picture. To my surprise (I had never met him before), Dawson gently reached out and put his arm around me and pulled me into the picture. He kissed my cheek as the kid's mom snapped the shutter. Dawson then turned to the boy--who was grinning--and said "I just thought I'd add some nice scenery to the picture." I was so stunned! Dawson released me and said "Thank you, love! Very nice of you." I only just laughed and continued on my way.

To this day I have wondered at my presence in some stranger's photo album. I can just see the kid, now grown, sitting with the book on his lap showing his kids: "...and here's me and Richard Dawson kissing some blonde who accidentally walked into the shot..."

Grables'Daughter: jbull217: skinink: Damn, I loved all those old shows. Match Game, Family Feud, $10,000 Pyramid, Newlywed Game. My favorite was the80's Price is Right only because Barker's Beauties were awesome. Holly, where have you gone?

Holly went batshiat crazy.

Really?


Indeed. Has spent recent years trolling various game show/Price Is Right fan site message boards ranting about what a bastard Bob Barker is. Not much empirical proof of this out there, kind of a "you had to be there and know the board admins" sort of thing.

In more depressing news, there are game show/Price is Right fan site message boards. And I've visited them. Pity me.

He used to creep me out as a kid. Combs must have had some ladies' footwear fetish (and tiny feet), because I remember him often trying on the high heels of female contestants.

Ray Combs, Louie Anderson and Richard Karn wish they had 1/10th the natural talent to host the Feud that Steve Harvey does.

Well... that sucks. I liked Richard Dawson (from what I've seen of him) on Family Feud and Celebrity Match Game. I read he was a 'jerk with a heart of gold', and was extremely fussy about the minutia.

Dang...

I hope this gets TVLand or another network to do a Hogans Heroes marathon weekend.


I have never seen any Family Feuds with Dawson as host on TV Land. Not sure why, but maybe it's airing rights or copyright something.

A few months ago, I was re-reading John Christopher's Wild Jack (young adult dystopian sci-fi), and realized the author had put Richard Dawson himself in there. His character was a former TV actor, best known for his role as a wise-cracking British POW in a sitcom set in a WWII German prison camp. Christopher must have been a fan.

RIP funny smoochy man.

TV's Vinnie: [robertclary.com image 203x203]
There's some irony that the sole remaining survivor of the ENTIRE "Hogan's Heroes" cast is Robert "LeBeau" Clary, who was THIS close to being exterminated in the Holocaust (he still has his inmate identification number tattooed on his arm, which was why he was always filmed wearing a long-sleeves on the show, regardless of the weather).


Werner Klemperer was a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany.

John Banner was a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany.

Leon Askin was a Austro-Hungarian Jew who fled Nazi Germany.
and one of the glorified extras who had a few lines during HH run was a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany.

Robert Clary spoke at my high school a few times and mentioned this one of our teachers was a fellow survivor.

BS. Harvey's Feud needs to be burned. The contestants are brainless, and Harvey clearly is only doing this for the money/exposure. Ray Combs and John O'Hurley have been the only worthy successors to Dawson.

I couldn't stand watching O'Hurley either. He rarely "bit" when they threw the really dumb answers out there. Dawson and Combs had a way of letting the viewers know just how ridiculous people were and made some pretty funny jokes of it. Also, O'Hurley insisted on reacting to the buzzer the exact same way, every single show! It really got old after 2 times. After 20, he became unwatchable.

In fact, I believe the hosts got worse each time by some large order of magnitude.

The_Sponge: Pandora's Litterbox: Oldiron_79: Marisyana: My sixth grade teacher was named Richard Dawson. On the first day of school he announced "I'm not English, I was never on Hogan's Heroes and I don't host a game show so don't ask."
One of my teachers in school was named Michael Bolton. Completely serious not just an Office Space joke/reference.
The professor of my required college Psychology course was named Bruce Campbell. This was before that Mr. Campbell was a recognizable pop culture reference.
One of the professors at my college was named Michael Jordan. I never took any of his classes, but I think it's a safe bet that he would do a better job of running the Bobcats.


Now that we're completely off-topic... in college, we had husband and wife professors in the English department named Carroll and Carol O'Conner.

I am thinking Barbara Steel, Katheryn Hepburn, Pam Grier.

Between him and Davy Jones, I turned into a complete fool for British accents. And to think they both died this year.


Neither of them are typical British accents. There are some English people who speak like that but outside London most of the British are not very articulate.

My grandmother for example is forever ranting about how Americans can't speak English properly yet she habitually says me when she should say my. Example: I got me laundry back. There are other examples of her appalling use of English, and her hypocrisy, but that's the first that comes to mind.
