    Key part of the great ensemble cast in Hogan's Heroes.

    He owned the Feud, and I loved his reprise in Running Man.

    I always think of him as the kissing host, and remember thinking how odd it was. Still, he was (and remains) the best host that Family Feud ever had.

    I also remember him on Hogan's Heroes (which I liked back then, but realize it's a sorry ass example of a time period show).

    Plant a lollipop tree in his memory.
    I like The Feud. Dawson is the best, but I think Richard Karn is underrated. By the way, contrary to widespread lies on the internet, there have only been five hosts. Louie Anderson never, ever hosted The Feud. [​IMG]
