PHYLLIS DILLER - 1917-2012

Very sorry to hear that the legendary PHYLLIS DILLER has passed away.  So glad to have this Rankin/Bass MAD MONSTER PARTY postcard signed by Ms. Diller (thanks to my pal, R/B Biographer and Historian Rick Goldschmidt).
Love this publicity art for DILLER's 1972 "appearance" on Hanna-Barbera's THE NEW SCOOBY-DOO MOVIES.  Art by Jack Manning.

Sorry to hear that RON PALILLO passed away yesterday.  PALILLO is best remembered as Sweathog Arnold Horshack on the 1970s ABC-TV sitcom, "Welcome Back, Kotter".  Here's the "Welcome Back, Kotter" cast painted by the legendary Jack Davis for the cover of TV Guide.  8^)

Love these "behind-the-scenes" pics of BOZO's CIRCUS!  I grew up watching this show, which was on Chicago's WGN-TV...Monday through at 12 Noon.  Here's BOZO (Bob Bell) and COOKY (Roy Brown) posing with a couple of studio audience members, after that day's show.  8^)
