Not a single mention of Sanford, Subby?

Why did you even bother?

He's been 67 since 1979.

Couldn't place the name, but as soon as I saw the pic, I remembered him as the guy who replaced "Big Dummy Lamont" (Demond Wilson) on Sanford & Son, as Fred's (Redd Foxx) new partner at the junk yard.

The episode where Hank is a wood shop teacher has a ton of great Carl Moss (the principal's name) lines.

Carl Moss: We don't have money for all these fancy teaching aides... like wood.
Hank Hill: You know, the Carl Moss I knew wouldn'-
Carl Moss: Give it a rest, Hank. All parents care about these days is zero-tolerance drug policies and literacy. "Why can't Johnny read?" "Why can't Johnny read?" God, that gets old.
Hank: But Carl, shop is the foundation of all learning. And I'll tell you what, a youngster with a tool in both hands has no hands left to do drugs.
Carl Moss: (exasperated) They'll just put the tools down if they want to do the drugs bad enough.

one of my favorite episodes!

i had no idea cal (sanford) and carl (koth) were the same guy! but since reading this article, i can't stop hearing the similarities in their voices! dude was on a lot of stuff, and he always seemed like a likeable guy having fun on screen

Well, well, well.  What do we have here?  Another citizens who ISNT' READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

He was great in 'Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman', played a good-ol boy trucker named Mack Slattery.  He was one of the best characters in the latter part of Season 2 of MHMH, after Louise Lasser had become so unstable that she could barely hold her own and they brought in other actors like Dabney Coleman, Marian Mercer, Sid Haig.

Please tell me that Eddie Deezen is okay.

kronicfeld: Please tell me that Eddie Deezen is okay.


Breathe easy. He's OK.

Strangely, I just found this on MST3K wiki:

On a rather grim note, both actors who played the lead characters are deceased: Kim Milford (Billy) died of heart failure following open-heart surgery in 1988; Cheryl Smith (Cathy) passed away in 2002 from hepatitis and liver failure due to long-term heroin use.


Damn

Once had a junkie in Dallas follow me around convinced I was him.

I remember he played a member of a biker gang in an episode of "Rockford P. I." who beat up Jim and kidnap his date. As they grab her, he says "Come on mama, you're gonna pull a train..." and she did. Thought that was pretty bold for '70s TV.

Holy shiat, my dad owned Laserblast.  Not the MST3k episode, the actual movie.  On VHS.  For the lulz.  I think it affected my mental stability, and now I'm a regular poster on Fark.

Made my wife watch it so she could better understand my childhood.  She thought it was hilarious.

The only show I'm familiar with him being on was "Sanford".

I like pizza.  I think it makes a great hat.

OMG! Thanks for that link! I need to watch that episode!

Sad for this guy's passing, but honestly, I'm sick of every single referral to MST3K being about a "classic episode".  If every episode is a "classic episode", none of them are.  MST fans are just like Dr. Who fans...yes, some are good, but the majority of them are giant horse turds.

Maybe if you assholes would have bought more delicious J-bone steaks, this wouldnt have happened!

No, the movies shown therein were mostly giant horse turds. The show itself was about 75% gold, 20% good, and 5% poopie.
