Vewwwwy Intewesting. But sad.
Your friendly neighborhood racist. On the waiting list to be a nazi. Designated an honorary 'snowflake'. Trolled by the very best, as well as by BJ. Always typical, unlike others.., Fulminator, Hopelessly in the tank for trump... inappropriate... Flocking himself... Probably a tucking sexist, too... All thought comes from the right wing noise machine(TM)... A clear and present threat to The Future Of Our Democracy.. Doesn't understand anything... Made the trump apologist and enabler playoffs

^^ beat me to it.

I always liked his character of Tyrone F. Horneigh (the dirty old man who was always giving Ruth Buzzi the business on the park bench; his name was never said on the show because the censors didn't like how it was pronounced -- "horny.")

One of my favorites from the show. RIP.
In the end, they will all pretty much taste the same.

I may bear some responsibility for this. A couple of weeks ago I watched a show on Netflix saluting the 50th anniversary of Laugh-In. I knew of the Dead or Alive (copyright vandal) status of many cast members, but didn't know if Arte was still around or not. Googling his name, I saw that, indeed, he was still alive.

Unfortunately, I fear that my curiosity may have changed that.

I had just reffed his "falling off the tricycle" gag in a blog post last Wednesday, so I'll take some blame for Tangredi cursing him as well...

I read that that's exactly how he died. You deserve ALL the blame...

RIP, Arte!

Well, 90 year olds should not be riding tricycles... or anything other than Mecca scooters.
