    Just caught this one. The older crowd here will definitely remember him from Laugh-In. I was only 2 when the show was cancelled, so I don't remember it at all. However, my generation and those born in the 80s will definitely remember him as announcer on Sesame Street, The Electric Company, Blue Falcon from DynoMutt, and Space Ghost.. All you Ren & Stimpy fans will remember him as Powdered Toast Man.

    Great voice.

    I remember Gary Owens quite well along with Laugh In.

    RIP to real standard in an era that brings me fond memories of variety shows and fun TV shows.
