  • MeTV went off the air for about 15 minutes, right during one of the last Svengoolie segments up until it was time for the news (which I get in my area instead of Star Trek).

    Must've just been your feed because mine stayed on.

    I get feeds for Boston and New Hampshire (I live in southern NH), both of which were off during that time. Regional, maybe?
    I decided not to get any candy for Easter this year, mostly since I still had most of what I got on Christmas left over.

    Yeah, I'm pretty bad (or good?) with procrastination.
    I don't know if I'll be doing much, if any, April Fool stuff on here (my avatar notwithstanding). I did, however, do something for the Garfield Wiki on its Facebook page.

    I've been all day. Timezone perks.

    Author Norton Juster, best known for the 1960s children's books The Phantom Tollbooth and The Dot and the Line, has passed away at the age of 91 due to complications from a stroke.

    Both books were adapted into animated features by Chuck Jones at MGM, with The Dot and The Line winning an Academy Award.

    BTW, what forum should be used to talk about books? I wasn't sure where to put this.

    Cafe Subforum. I could've sworn we had a general thread to memorialize deceased artists and celebs.

    Thanks. I didn't see "books" in the description for Cafe, but I did see "ereaders", so I guess that's good enough.
    R.I.P. Robert A. Altman, lawyer and video game executive who co-founded ZeniMax Media, the company involved with franchises such as Doom, The Elder Scrolls, Commander Keen and Fallout.

    For a second i thought you were talking about the Robert Altman the director of MASH, The Long Goodbye, and the live action Popeye movie. I almost thought wait that guy died in 2006.

    But overall R.I.P

    Yeah, I thought that name sounded familiar elsewhere.
    A bit of morbid trivia I discovered a few nights ago:

    Four of the voice actors on The Brave Little Toaster (the original) have died...in their 40s.

    Phil Hartman (Air Conditioner, Hanging Lamp)- 49
    Joe Ranft (Elmo St. Peters, Clown)- 45
    Jonathan Benair* (Black and White TV)- 47
    Judy Toll (Mish Mash, Two-Face Sewing Machine)- 44

    *Also appeared in the "to the Rescue" sequel.
    R.I.P. David Richardson, writer and producer who worked on shows such as Empty Nest, The Simpsons (he wrote "Homer Loves Flanders" and produced 11 other episodes for the fifth season), The John Larroquette Show, My Big Fat Greek Life, Malcolm in the Middle, Two and a Half Men and F is for Family.
    R.I.P. to musicians Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Beck, Bogert & Appice) and Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls). Both passed away on January 13.
    Happy 98th, Larry Storch! For those who don't know, Storch was the first to voice the Joker. He is also known for voiceover roles such as Mr. Whoopee in Tennessee Tuxedo, Koko the Clown in the '60s revival of Out of the Inkwell, Cool Cat in WB7A cartoons, and Drac and Ratso in Groovie Goolies.

    Onscreen, he may be best known for playing Charlie in Car 54, Where Are You? and Corporal Randolph Agarn in F-Troop.

    To my knowledge, he is the oldest American voice actor (on a regular basis) still alive. His final voiceover roles were recorded in the late 1980s (Foofur, Garfield and Friends and a Beetle Bailey TV movie).

    I heard recently that he doesn't remember making the Cool Cat cartoons (well, it's a handful of six-minute shorts from a pretty constant 60 year career from a near-century of life, so probably not surprising!) but they're what I know him best for
    R.I.P. to Alto Reed, saxophonist for Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band, and Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers, known for songs such as "How Do You Do It?" (which was almost released by the Beatles).
