As someone who "grew up in the 1960's" watching Art Linkletter, I can honestly say a great entertainer has left us. Rest in peace and thanks for all the joy you've brought into our lives over the 60 plus years that you've been in the business!

I thought he was already dead.He was old back in the 60s when I was a kid.He must have been close to 150 yrs old by now.Maybe it was the Viagra that kept him young,chasing around all the young nurses that where changing his diapers.
