I have just heard that My Favorite Martian is no more.

I will miss his versatile ability, but at 86, I hope that Ray Walston had a full life.

Synchronistically enough, I had My Favorite Martian playing on TVLand in the background when I first read Sam's post.

Walston was quite a character, and a superlative actor, even on something as goofy as MFM. He'll be missed.

Oddly enough, I caught about 3 minutes of the show this morning because I couldn't sleep. I preferred his work in The Sting, but I thought he had died years ago. After Bill Bixby, but still years ago...
Real world is getting too much like comics, I can't tell who's alive or dead.

Boy, the landscaping at Starfleet Academy is sure going to suffer without ol' Boothby... we'll miss him.
