I'm looking at old SNL reruns. This guy was absolutely great! I really miss his brand of humor.
I miss Troy McClure...
Truly gifted comedic actor. I first saw him on the original Pee Wee HBO special, as Captain Carl.
Not only do I miss Phil Hartman, but I also miss John Candy and Chris Farley.
Not a single episodes of post-Hartman Simpsons goes by without me missing him.
My favorite Hartman persona was that of Ed McMahon on "Carsenio." "Yes! You are correct, sir!"
I miss Chris Farley so much I sometimes become Matt Foley the motivational speaker. To bad I don't really live in a van down by the river. Oh well....people do really miss him though as well as Phil Hartman. I can't count how may times people have said that to me after my little skit....the memories.....
I also miss Phil Hartman, Chris Farley, and John Candy. They were all funny, but in different ways. They'll be sorely missed and can't be replaced.
I'll show my age and say that I miss John Belushi. - Steve
Ah, yes ... the Simpsons. And SNL. Come to think of it, I LOVED the tv show with Phil as a radio news anchor. I can't remember the name of it right now, but I watched it faithfully when it was on. It was truely sad when he left us ...
What a tragic end for a great comdeian. Phil Hartman is sorely missed. I loved his impression of Clinton, and everything else he touched turned to gold. May he rest in peace.
Yep, Phil was a funny man. Troy McClure was a favorite. I remember him from such films as "The Greatest Story Ever Hula'd".
I'll always laugh out loud every time I get to see Hartman's spoof of Ross Perot's runningmate Admiral James Stockdale.
Phil was a great actor, comedian, and had been an accomplished graphic artist before SNL. His Clinton was great, and his cheesy "TV guy" voice that eventually became Hugh MacAttack (remember those McDonald's commercials?) and the great Troy McClure (you might remember me from...)always made me smile. Captain Karl (from the HBO Pee Wee special) was one of the icons from my childhood. I even sat through that living toy movie because of him. He is most definitely missed.
I miss Phil. His voice of Lyle Langley in the Monorail episode is great, too. I remember Troy McClure from such educational films as One Minus Two Equals Negative FUN!!! And who can forget the classic driver's ed film 'The Decapitation of Larry Leadfoot.' Troy: 'Now here's an appealing fellow, in fact, they're a-peeling him off the road.' Homer: Hee-hee, it's funny cuz I don't know him.
The show where he was a news anchor is called Newsradio. Great show. It went downhill after Phil Hartman died. They replaced him with Jon Lovitz, who could never fill Hartman's shoes.
I miss him too.
There was a webpage a while ago that listed all of Troy McClure's acting gigs.
It was called the Stellear Acting Career of Troy McClure.
Sadly, that page is gone.
but thanks to the web.archive.org project, it's back and it's here!!!
