RIP.

Now let’s see if this gets as many hits as the two threads on Russell Johnson’s passing...

“Laugh-In” alumnus, as well. He and Bonaduce were pretty funny together.

With his last breath he exclaimed, "Russell Johnson lives! Syndication and royalty checks forever!"

R.I.P. Dave Madden.

Actually, I thought he already was, One Step Beyond. Kept a very low profile.

OK, along with the Professor from Gilligan’s Island, that makes 2 today. They say these things always come in 3’s.

Rueben Kincaid and The Professor both died today.

Somebody is killing off all the old TV stars you thought were dead already.

Watch your six, Fish!

The Professor and Mr. Kincaid

Seems all the old stars from after-school TV of my youth are dropping like flies.

Getting old sucks.

Having grown up in a Christian household in the 90’s, I will remember Dave Madden as the voice of Bernard Walton on the radio show, Adventures in Odyssey.

I believe that they were friends well into Bonaduce’s adulthood.

Oh, I am so sad. He was good in The Partridge Family, but I LOVED his vocal work in The Adventures in Odyssey. Great series and he was one of the stars.

Beside making things, the Professor was good in making instruments. Perhaps Mr. Kincaid will become his manager =)

Just as well. Surely, he was sick of being asked if he used to call NFL games.

Then that would be a fourfer. Provided they are on my list. Speaking of, anyone hear from Al Molinaro lately? How about Doris Day?...

I actually loved Gilligan, but I think it was so bad it was good. Russell Johnson seemed like a very good actor to me.

I guess it does come in three’s. Just saw in the Daily Mail that the character actor who played the sheep hearder in the Vicar of Dibley died yesterday.
