Ralph Waite, Patriarch in TV Series ‘The Waltons,’ Dies at 85



Quote:
Ralph Waite, a multifaceted actor who became etched in the American imagination as the craggy-faced, big-hearted patriarch of a rustic, Depression-era clan in the popular 1970s television series, “The Waltons,” died Thursday. He was 85.

The death of Mr. Waite, a resident of the Palm Springs, Calif., area, was confirmed by his manager, Alan Mills, The Associated Press reported.

In September 1972, CBS premiered “The Waltons” against two already popular shows: Flip Wilson’s irreverent comedy show on NBC, and “Mod Squad” about hippie undercover police officers on ABC. What some saw as a cornball newcomer was expected to be buried, but within two seasons it had driven its competitors off the air....

Thanks for finding the thread for me. Search (and the whole site) was a little slow, so i figured if I made a Funkee thread someone would find it for me and bump it to the top.

Dear Mods: Can we now merge this thread into the Mega-Funkee Thread?

Kaythnx, bai!!!

It used to drive me nuts how they would cover his mustache with makeup when he was the Joker instead of shaving it.

Comedian David Brenner passed today, at 78!

I remember watching him with my Mom on the old Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin shows, not to mention many appearances on the Tonight Show with Carson!

RIP!

Also jazz drummer Ralph Penland passed away this morning. He's probably not a name you fellows all know, but he played with a ton of big name artists over the years, and I had the fortune of playing with him a couple of times when I lived out there.

Swing monster, and one of the nicest individuals I ever met. LA's jazz community has really suffered a great loss!
