Born. November 11th. 1925,. Dayton Ohio. Passed Away April 11th, 2013. Montecito California. Can Still Remember when this Comedy Gem of a Human Being Passed Away. Happy Birthday, You Goof.

The 2013 TCM Film Festival was held just a couple of weeks after he passed away, and he was scheduled to appear at the screening of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World at the Cinerama Dome, joining Mickey Rooney, Karen Kramer, Barrie Chase, and Marvin Kaplan.  They left an empty chair for Jonathan Winters, and had a special tribute video prior to the film screening.

Comedy wise was ahead of his time.  We "boomers" loved him in the '60's and beyond.  I know many who STILL pronounce it "Gar-BAHJ" ! ;) 

Was also it seemed, a huge influence of Robin Williams'.

No doubt.  You might remember he was on WIlliams' sitcom Mork & Mindy...

I Did a Bit of Leg Work and Elbow Grease with Mad World a couple weeks prior now.

As Far As "Main" Ensemble Characters Go. i think (Unfortunately) there are only two remaining Performers/Artists from aforementioned Behemoth Comedy, Still With Us today.  (Madam) Barry Chase. And (while i dont/cant remember the fellows name at present); a Fellow Office In Arms with Culpepper

"They love it when you touch them on the leg a little bit"

"My fourth wife ... the first three, they were rotten ... teenagers, all of them, kids, but fun ... no brains, you know, but from here on down, gangbusters!"

Ah ha ha ha ha "I happened to be a cannon outfit in World War II" ... Dean has to cover his face to hide his laughter.
