    Wipe On, Wipe Off...

    I know many made fun of the movie, but I liked him as an actor and person. He will be missed...

    Thanks for the memories & laughs (Happy Days).

    He was a colorful and memorable character from his various comedy roles. Rest in peace, Pat.

    In the 1960s and 1970s, he was a role model of sorts for me because there were so few Japanese on t.v. He was quite the comedian. In "The Karate Kid", he brought some dignity to some nasty issues.

    Karate Kid was pretty cool. The one where the girl had an eagle and stuff. Good Guy.

    Did'nt know he was American born, turns out the movie studios wanted to make him sound more Japenease and play down his real first name.

    Wax on...

    I particularly remember him from Happy Days - always enjoyed that show. Too bad, but life goes on, we all have to go at some point. At least he enjoyed a full, successful life. :)
