    9 years ago, today, Grandpa Al Lewis passed away. I always enjoyed him the show. Especially, the FCC rally and this pic of him with shit-breath Booey.

    Luckily he died before he could get the Gilbert Godfried treatment on the show and Howard pretends that he doesn't exist.

    He was one of the characters that made the old HSS show great.

    I wonder if Al was still alive and saw The Howard of today if he would pull a Pat Cooper on him and call him out as a Fraud.

    I love Grandpa Munster's genuine look of revulsion when he looks at Monkey Breath.

    Heard on a podcast that his comedy club was all mobbed up. Obvious in retrospect I guess.

    Al did get treated badly by Stern towards the end of his life if I recall.

    Didn't he even refuse to come on the air?

    His words "FUCK THE FCC" were disgraced when Wiggy became his own biggest censor.

    Wiggy hid behind the issue of financial disclosure when he backed out. We now know he had a closet full of skeletons that would have destroyed his life and career.
