    No. That was Gene Kelly. (Recall the 'end of the world' plotline.)

    Yeah, I thought of watching the one with Roger Moore as a tribute on my Timelife video, but I think that may be back at my parents' house, same thing with my season 3 DVD with Jean Stapleton. Seems like TMS guests are dropping like flies lately.

    Incidentally Kenny Baker, the tiny man who played Artoo Detoo in Star Wars also died sometime last year. However according to sources he never actually was a guest star officially. Apparently on the Star Wars episode they used a remote-controlled version of the robot character.

    Rest in peace to Sir Bruce Forsyth. His Muppet Show episode was a favorite of mines from Season One. My condolences to his close friends and family.

    Jim Nabors passed away at age 87. He is best known, of course, as Gomer Pyle from the Andy Griffith Show and Gomer Pyle USMC. He also was a frequent guest star on variety shows during the 1970's. So, he was a very good fit for The Muppet Show. Carol Burnett used to refer to him as her "good luck charm" and would have him as one of her guests the first show of each season.

    Thanks for sharing. I'll have to watch that ep as a tribute if I ever get less busy.

    *Adds another tombstone for the latest addition to the TMS Guest Star Graveyard.

    Auvoir Messieur Charles,
    Une pluss fantóm.
    Dormes vous peur eternite.
    Bon voyage a votre nuvelle meson.

    Please pardon if I misspelled any words in the epitaph, its been several years since my French lessons.

    :sleep: I love French singers.
    :boo: I love French fries!
    :sleep: French fries? I don't get it.
    :boo: That's because you didn't order any.

    This makes the 57th guest star who's now deceased. I have nothing else I can think of to say. :(:cry:

    Wikipedia agrees with her passing although no mention is made on the page at Muppet Wiki of Guests who have died. A Dead or Alive website says she's still alive too. On the other hand the article CBPuppets links looks serious and trustworthy.

    Until any new evidence comes to light confirming she's definitely still alive, I'm going to assume RIP Carol Channing. :(

    The Huffington Post is confirming it as well:
