He was a very good stage actor--there were some clips on youtube for awhile
I remember watching an interview with him where he talked about Soleil Moon Frye and I got the impression that the less he had to do with her the happier he was during the filming of their series. While people saw him as this warm and cuddly character he admitted he was a strict disciplinarian in his house. Not sure if it was aimed at Frye.
What many people do not realize is he was an Opera singer for many years
**Avatar approved by the powers that be***
Was looking him up recently and couldn't believe he was still alive.
Ditto, thought he had passed awhile ago....
Anyway, he was a terrific actor, great singing voice, his small but hilarious role in 'Tootsie' was my favorite of his film acting roles, though he was awesome in the Police Academy flicks as well.. RIP.
