Pretty sure that was Ann Sothern as Mister Ed, and she died in 2002, 2004 and is scheduled to die again next year. I looked it up.

Really? Ann Sothern was Rocky Lane? :dazed: :swoon:

So did Mr. Ed voice Hazel? :confused:

Ann Southern was the voice of "My Mother the Car", about which I will say nothing. It also starred Jerry van Dyke.

My grandmother insisted that Ann Southern got her real name, Harriet Lake, because she was a foundling - left on some church doorstep or something - and the local newspaper ran a contest to name the unknown baby, and the winning entry was the reversal of the name of the local landmark, Lake Harriet. My grandmother was from Minnesota and thought that Ann Southern was from there, where there is a Lake Harriet, but it turns out that Ann Southern was from South Dakota, which has its own Lake Harriet. But it don't know if the part about being a foundling is true.

Hazel was played by Shirley Booth, and I was really browned off when the Hazel newspaper cartoons, presumably still drawn by Ted Key, did not pay any respects when she died.

Sothern, not Southern, and she was born in N.D. Apparently no truth to her being born a foundling, either.

Veteran cowboy actor Shirley booth was actually the voice of Francis the Talking Mule. They smeared her teeth with peanut butter to get her to move her lips and used the mo-cap data to animate Francis, who was actually Kenny Baker is a zebra suit with the lines painted white.

Nah, TJ was originally voiced by Topo Gigio until Senor Wences took over.

Fyvush Finkel, Pillar of Yiddish Theater, Dies at 93
Fyvush Finkel, whose homespun moniker and putty face were comic statements all their own that helped him become a mainstay of what remained of Yiddish entertainment, and who later crossed over into the television mainstream as the cantankerous lawyer on the 1990s series “Picket Fences,” died on Sunday at his home in Manhattan. He was 93.

His death was confirmed by his son Ian, who said Mr. Finkel had been having heart problems for many months.

In 1997, Mr. Finkel, then 75, had a star with his name added to the 30 stars on the Yiddish Theater Walk of Fame, on the sidewalk outside the Second Avenue Deli in Manhattan.

“This star has added 25 years to my life,’’ he said at the time.

Fyvush Finkel, Emmy-winning actor of 'Picket Fences,' dies at 93
Veteran stage and screen actor Fyvush Finkel, best known for his Emmy-winning role as the expressive and often bombastic attorney Douglas Wambaugh on the comedy-drama “Picket Fences, has died. He was 93.

The New York-based Yiddish Artists and Friends Actors Club said in a statement that the actor, who had a career that spanned 80 years, died Sunday in his New York apartment.

Other notable roles for Finkel, who won the Emmy in 1994 for “Picket Fences,” included eccentric teacher Harvey Lipschultz on “Boston Public” and attorney Murray Chotiner in the 1995 bio-drama “Nixon.”

A son of East European immigrants, Finkel was born Oct. 9, 1922, in Brooklyn. He began his show business career at age 9, when he won a role as a boy soprano in a Yiddish theater production around the corner from his house. He formally joined the Yiddish theater circuit when he graduated from high school.

In last year's really, really wonderful movie, I'll See you in my Dreams, Sam Elliott dies. It's a big plot element. (Of course.) I could barely stand that, even fictionally. So, for once, I have to agree with Stern. No Sam pictures on this thread, PLEASE.

From the Washington Post -
John McLaughlin, provocateur of public affairs TV, dies at 89

John McLaughlin, a former Jesuit priest, speechwriter for President Richard M. Nixon and conservative provocateur whose pugnacious style as a host of a political chat show helped usher in the era of impolite punditry, died Aug. 16 at his home in Washington. He was 89.

The cause was complications from prostate cancer, said journalist Eleanor Clift, one of his on-air sparring partners. Mr. McLaughlin missed the most recent installment of his syndicated public affairs program, “The McLaughlin Group.”

John McLaughlin would want you to celebrate his life enjoying this parody.

IIRC, he was already long dead, having been killed in Roadhouse.
