    Vacation curse strikes again - Ooooh ooooh! Horshack is dead.

    From TMZ...

    Ron Palillo -- the actor who played Horshack on "Welcome Back, Kotter" -- died this morning at his home near Palm Springs. He was 63.

    The details surrounding Palillo's death are unclear.

    Palillo was known for calling out, "Ooh ooh ooh, Mr. Kotter" as one of the Sweathogs on the show ... which he appeared on with John Travolta from 1975 to 1979.

    After Kotter, Palillo appeared in "Laverne and Shirley" and voiced a character on the Disney cartoon, "Darkwing Duck."

    Palillo's "Kotter" co-star Robert Hegyes -- who played Epstein -- passed away earlier this year after suffering a heart attack.

    In 2001, her fiancé, Port Authority police officer John Dennis Levi, died during the 9/11 attacks. In March 2005, Scott moved from Brooklyn, New York to Amelia Island, Florida, to care for her ailing elder sister Carol Anne, a producer who worked on many Robert Altman films and who went by the name Scott "Scotty" Bushnell. Her other sister, Jerilynn Scott, is a talent manager in Los Angeles.

    Soon after her arrival in Florida, she collapsed and lingered in a coma for several days. She woke up and when asked if she knew where she was, replied, "obviously in the hospital."[citation needed] Since doctors could not ascertain what caused the coma, she was released two days later (on April 2, her birthday), and her spirits remained high. Three days later, on April 5, 2005, she went to take a nap and never woke up. Despite an autopsy, the cause of death remained uncertain. Scott was cremated.[2] Her sister, Carol Anne, died of heart failure on July 13, 2006.
