The best comics are either gone or leaving soon.

He lived more years than most people. I'm sure a lot of people who heard the news said "I didn't know he was still alive!".

I never watched F Troop much. Or McHale's Navy. But I watched a lot of Hogan's Heroes.

I also watched McHale's navy but only really remembered Ernest Borgnine's character (couldn't remember the others).

Hogan's heroes was a classic. There was some rumor that Bob Crane was killed because his character made the Germans look like imbeciles. I don't know if there was any truth to that?

I remembered Captain Binghamton the most because of his funny voice. The routine between McHale and Binghamton was a lot like the one between Major Nelson and Dr. Bellows in I Dream of Jeannie.

Barbara Feldon who played Jeannie is 90 years old if you can believe that.

Just kidding, I know it was Barbara Eden. Feldon (Agent 99 in Get Smart) is 89, Eden is 90.

A little personal trivia. When I was about 10, a school friend lived near Barbara Eden. One I day went with him to an intercom, and he said "Mrs. Ansara, can Matthew come out to play?" And Barbara Eden explained that he couldn't. During that I exclaimed "wow it's really her!" and my friend elbowed me in the ribs.

I thought his murder had something to do with weird sex stuff he was into.

I think it was drug-related.

I watched all those shows, though McHale’s Navy not as much.

Agent 99, Jeannie and Samantha the witch will forever type cast those actresses in my mind.

Indeed. Elizabeth Montgomery didn't share in their longevity though. I remember she died a long time ago. Bewitched was another show I watched a lot. One day when I was little I came across Richard X. Slattery, who played a cop in the show a few times, in a grocery store. I asked him "haven't I seen you on TV?" He said yes, and then mentioned "I can't find my rice".
