Arte Johnson, ‘Laugh-In’ Star, Dies at 90.

Laugh-In re-runs made a bit of an impression during childhood. Anyhow, RIP mate.

I've been rewatching them in order on Amazon Prime, which has all 6 seasons. Currently up to Nov 1968. I love it, and Arte is one of many fantastic performers. There is something ineffably iconicly brilliant about his 'Very interesting' German soldier character with the many variant wry and even wistful postscripts he adds to that catchphrase. If anyone's interested, (and I can understand why no-one would be) I've been 'reviewing' each show as I go along on the boomer-tastic Steve Hoffman Forum. I can send a link on request.
