    Never thought Todd Bridges would be last man standing from the Drummond household

    I remember when these clips with Charlotte were brand new.
    In Season 3 there were a number of minor characters (including Raul Julia) who didn't last beyond the season.
    At least they retired Molly's character before she got disgruntled.

    I mean, we really only have 2 season 3 episodes surfaced.

    By coincidence Charlotte Rae passing away, if Will Lee (Mr. Hooper) was still around he'd be 110 today.

    Every time SST adds a bunch of new cast members, there's always the one person that really stands out that doesn't last. For Season 25, it was Ruthie, for season 3 it was Molly. Charlotte was a very funny and charming person. There was something about her that made all of her characters endearing.

    Glad she lived a nice long life. May she rest in peace.

    It was still early morning, so I wasn't really awake yet.
