    Makes more sense, but I swear I saw a caption that said wife Annie. I stand corrected.

    That episode was one of my alltime favorites, with Alan and his toupees. Also I think it's the one where I decided I wanted to take Mary Tyler Moore home with me and keep her.

    You saw a caption, I saw a caption. Who knows which one is right? Maybe it was his wife....

    What a great shot of Mel and Carl!

    The Dick Vandyke show was my favorite show as a kid. What an all-star cast!

    Carl and Mel Brooks did some of the greatest standup comedy ever!

    RIP; I loved the Dick Van Dyke Show and the 2000 Year Old Man albums. Speaking of which, Mel better stick around for another 1,906 years, for truth in advertising! :)

    Another "little" masterpiece that many aren't familiar with is The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming. A wonderful US/Russia/cold war send-up......but much subtler and "small scale" than something like Dr Strangelove. Rather than hitting its audience with a sledgehammer.....it tickles them with a feather. ;)

    Condolences to Rob and Mel and his family.

    people that make us laugh or blow our minds with music - especially pro’s pros like Carl Reiner And Petty and the like -it’s like a holy calling and I hold them in the highest esteem.

    Rob, please know that almost everyone who saw your Dad's work, loved him for it.

    I didn't watch TV nearly as much as some, but I just loved everything your Dad was involved in.

    Your family will always be Royalty, to me.

    That one had my mom's favorite comic, Jonathan Winters, and a whole bunch of others. Good flick.
