In Memoriam 2012

As we enter the new year, I would like to spend just a few brief moments remembering some of the actors/artists/personalities that we lost in 2012.  Click the names below to return to a blog post about their participation in holiday entertainment.

Hemsley as George Jefferson in a 1977 Christmas episode of The Jeffersons.

Borgnine dressed as Santa Claus on 1962 Christmas episode of McHale's Navy.

Andy Williams singing "O Holy Night" during one of his TV variety series' Christmas episodes in the 1960s.

Spending the evening watching Dick Clark has been a New Year's Eve tradition for many.

Tony Randall and Jack Klugman dressed as Marley and Scrooge in a 1970 Christmas episode of The Odd Couple.

Andy Griffith sings during the 1960 Christmas episode of The Andy Griffith Show.

Robert Hegyes and Ron Palillo as Juan Epstein and Arnold Horshack on the 1977 Christmas episode of Welcome Back Kotter.

They will all be missed.
