    He was funny on Laugh-In playing the dirty old man after Ruth Buzzi and the German WWII soldier.

    As I've said before... So many great talents lost and so few to replace them.

    Thanks for all the laughs, Mr. Johnson.

    Maybe my favorite skit of all time on Laugh-In...

    Some episodes of Laugh-In, he was the best part. Always felt sorry for him being on the receiving end of Ruth Buzzi's purse hits. "Very Interseting, but stupid". RIP.

    I so enjoyed Arte Johnson's work. He had so many memorable parts through the years. One of my favorites is when he played Renfield in Love At First Bite with George Hamilton.

    He was so great. I especially loved his two appearances on The Partridge Family.
