Sorry, Fred, never heard of him. Must be an American thing.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I remember him and his 'antics'. Quite an actor!
Parkinson's is a debilitating disease.

Sorry, UA, Fred, that still doesn't explain who he is and what he is famous for. Obviously unknown outside of the US of A.

A few years before my time, but he was in a popular early 60's sit-com...watched it a bit in re-runs. Bob Denver (later on Gilligan's Island) was also in it.

I was born 1954 so sitcoms were not exactly my thing then. I also don't think it was ever shown over here but I could be wrong as it was a long time ago.
