Shouldn't this be moved to "Star Wars TV"?

Really, this still isn't in one of the Star Wars-related forums by now?

Three whole Star Wars roles, and no credit?

I hope Bea Arthur and Wilfred Brimley get more respect when it's their time to become one with the Force. :mad:

(On a serious note, though, this is sad news indeed. He was a very funny man, Star Wars Holiday Special notwithstanding.)

I actually laughed at some of those SWHS scenes. But I still chuckle and even LOL (before there was such a thing as "LOL" even) at clips of the Carol Burnett Show. For my money, that is (will be?) the funniest show EVER on television.

The dentist and the Hitler puppeteer can't hurt you now, Mr. Korman.

One thing about him, he used his tongue prettier than a twenty dollar *****.

Watching him try to keep a straight face in sketches with Tim Conway was pretty funny in itself. Is that show still on anywhere? I wouldn't mind watching some of those again.

There's a weekend infomercial that loops every few weeks or so around here that's a DVD set of the series, with outtakes, famous scenes, interviews during the sales pitch.

It'd be nice if one of these bazillion cable stations would play GOOD old reruns. Sure, you can find Lucy, Andy Griffith, and Sanford & Son, but where's the stuff like Carol Burnett? All in the Family? Gilligan's Isle (and I don't mean that unfunny remake currently airing on ABC that stars Racer X and that hobbit guy)?

TVLand used to air all this, but all I see there lately is Roseanne. I didn't watch that regularly the first time.

I confused him with Roger Corman when I first heard about his passing.

Sorry for the late post. Blazing Saddles is one of the funniest movies ever.
