I remember Norm Crosby. He was a comedian and talk show and game show regular in the 70's. His popular act was all about playing with malapropisms, using the wrong word in place of a similar-sounding word. He was a hit with linguists. That's for sure. It must've been tough developing material for a routine on a regular basis.

I was just talking about him with my mom yesterday and a friend and I talked about him last year. His style of comedy was unique. I'm sorry he's no longer with us.

Rest in peace, Joe Ruby, of the famed Ruby-Spears animation studio that began with Hanna-Barbera in the 1960's where Ruby co-created the iconic animated character (and popular non-sports card subject) Scooby-Doo. As HB faded with the 1970's, Ruby-Spears went out on their own and made numerous well-remembered (by me, anyway) 1980's animated series like Thundarr The Barbarian, Mr. T, Alvin & The Chipmunks, and Fangface.

In addition to Scoob and the gang, Ruby also co-created Dynomutt.



Sadly "bumping" this post as Ken Spears, the partner of Joe Ruby has also passed away, reforming the Ruby-Spears team in the afterlife. Mr. Spears passed away on November 6th at the age of 82, so a little over two months after his long-time production partner.

Thank you, gentlemen, for the countless fond childhood memories you provided generations of kids, myself certainly included, who grew up with your cartoons.

David Lander, best known for playing "Squiggy" in Laverne and Shirley, has died at age 73. His later career was mostly voice work, including "Smart ***/Wiseguy" in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, possibly because multiple sclerosis limited his movement. He had a second career as a minor league baseball scout.

I agree with you guys. Between his service in WWII and Vietnam he was a test pilot flying experimental aircraft to determine their flaws and without an ejection seat. If God is an astronaut, I hope he has something special for Yeager to try out.

Yeah Richard Corben's passing is a real loss. He's been one of my top favorite artists since I was a little kid. A fantastic style that he was able to continue in his final years. His later Edgar Allen Poe stuff for Dark Horse was amazing.

A once in a lifetime artist. There'll never be another like him.
