I hope that little bell that his Big Al sportscaster character loved so much rang heartily when he passed to the next world.

Awww... It saddens me to read this.

He was terrific. Just thinking of his nuttiness makes me smile.

Uncle Al,
The kiddies' pal,
Goodbye little friends, goodbye.

The clip below does not have it, but I remember either Uncle Al or some other Sues character who arrived in his usual kid show fashion, but then shut the door, loosened his tie, lit a cigarette and it was this creepy "this is our little secret" adult dark humor moment. Pretty daring for those times.

Yep I remember him such a shame that we are losing all our childhood actors now . You know you are getting old when people you remember from your childhood are dying off .

I didn't hear anything about this in the news and just now spotted the thread.

RIP Alan



Are you sure you're not thinking about Ken Shapiro in "The Groove Tube" as the TV clown who sent the adults out of the room for "Make-Believe Time", then lit a smoke, poured a drink, and read selections from "Fanny Hill" to the audience?
