I never really appreciated his work, but I watched the tribute to him last night on ABC and got choked up.

The best part was the montage of his clips at the end set to music. Man, I am the biggest sucker for that kind of stuff.

Yup. Mr. Horton.

He also played the maternal grandfather on Growing Pains, as well as George's boss (Mr. Thomassulo) on Seinfeld when George was faking his disability.

:( My tribute to George:

Will: Do you find it hard to hide the fact that you're gay?
Henry Lipkin, Psychologist: [Stammers] What are... talking...about...What?!?
Will: Look buddy, a few seconds ago you were ready to give me a jump!
Henry Lipkin, Psychologist: A jump?!? I...I'm terribly sorry...I....
Will: Hey, I don't have a problem with it. I don't care if you putt from the rough!

Its a pity that most people will remember RP for this period but he was making class music for a good 15 years before.

Remember Vinegar Joe with Elkie Brooks??

I don't know what he did after the 1999 Oscars, but I certainly remember him getting booed then.
