he almost made heehaw watchable

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

He was also a tireless fund raiser for Special Olympics, a point made in the obit.

Wrote his own comic material, too. That's pretty rare. Now and then.
