There's a good chance that I'm much older than you, but I cannot remember a time when Don Pardo's voice was not familiar to me. When someone dies at 96, it's not that unexpected, yet some people have been around so long they seem like they should be immortal. These clips , shich span more than 50 years, should give you an idea of how broad and and varied Don Pardo's career was. This is all stuff I found on you tube, yet a lot of it is video that I actually watched years ago, back when it was live TV. The editing style is rough and ugly.

In Memory of Robin Williams: The Funeral of Chuckles the Clown from THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW (1975)
"A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer in the pants."A classic scene about laughter and death. I think this is the kind of tribute he would have appreciated. To be honest, I hated many of Robin Williams' movies, yet I am deeply saddened by the loss of this deeply humane artist whose persona was too big for any human role, especially in these circumstances.

Today is Sunday, and today I'm going to get caught up watching this thing so maybe I can provide some commentary.
