Art Linkletter: One Last Laugh

Posted by Suzanne Murray
on May 26, 2010 at 8:34 PM

    Art Linkletter (Arthur Gordon Kelly), the radio and television talk-show pioneer who was know for, among other things, the popular "Kids Say the Darndest Things" segment of his long-running show "House Party," died today at his home in Bel-Air. He was 97.

    Linkletter put smiles on a lot of faces for many years.

    This cute exchange with one of his funny little guests will put one on yours. (YouTube)

    How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong, because sometime in life you will have been one or all of these. George Washington Carver

    Wow.    I hate to say this, but I thought he died in the 1980's....

    I remember when his daughter died by jumping off a building while under the influence of LSD.... I remember because it happened just a few weeks after the Manson killings and as a nine yo, I thought she was pretty - just like Sharon Tate.   1969.

    He seemed such a nice man.

    The legend is gone.  I do remember him, fondly.
