Oh wow!! I remember watching him with my son when he was on Shining Time Station, The Station Conductor. He was my favorite!

I was so sad when I read about his death, he was one of my favorite comedians and I remember watching him with my son too as the conductor.

I'll never forget his "Seven Words You Can't Say On Television". Great "forbidden" humor. Now, of course, just about all of them can be said on television.
