    The Munsters where way cool. RIP Al.
  6. I probably shouldn't, but when I see him, I think of Peter Boyle from Raymond. I'm not sure why; they just seem similar imo.

    RIP Grandpa.

    I know I shouldn't...Grandpa Munster reminds me of my aunt Lucy.
    (I think it's the hair).

    Anyone remember Lewis & Gwynn's 'other show', was it Car 54, Where Are You?
  9. Yep, Car 54 was funny. That's where Lewis first got paired with Fred Gwynne (played Herman on Munsters). Of the two monster comedy shows of my youth -- Addams Family and Munsters -- the latter was always my fave. Goodbye Grampa.
  10. Al used to own a restaurant on Bleeker St. in The Village about 10 years ago, and would hangout outside and smoke cigars on nice days. I stopped and talked to him twice; he was a real regular guy. :)

    Stupid me never brought my camera with me. :rollno:

    He was a credit to vampires everywhere! :D

    Rest In Peace, Al. :(
