Video~Tribute Art Linkletter~1912-2010


art linkletter tv icon 293x300 Video~Tribute Art Linkletter~1912 2010Art Linkletter passed away at 97 last month. He was known as one of the earliest and longest performing television personalities starting on radio in 1944. He was a television icon and a tv personality that we as the boomer generation grew up with.

Art Linkletter, whose ”People Are Funny” and ”House Party” shows entertained millions of TV viewers in the 1950s and ’60s with the funny side of ordinary folks and who remained active as a writer and speaker through his ninth decade.

Of course, what he will be most remembered for, is his “Kids Say The Darndest Things.” Of course, those kids were us, the baby boomer generation!

I can still remember my mom watching his “House Party Show” every afternoon. Occasionally, we would be inside during the heat of the day during the summer eating lunch and we would see his show. I can still remember when he had as a guest the tallest man in the world who stood 8’9″ tall.

Here are two of my favorite quotes by Mr. Linkletter:

“Each child has been an education for us in different ways. The first child-with-bloody-nose was rushed to the emergency room. The fifth child-with-bloody-nose was told to go to the yard immediately and stop bleeding on the carpet.”

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.”

Trivia: He grew up in Canada as “Gordon Arthur Kelly.”

Here are a couple of video interviews one with Larry King and one with Bill O’Reilly.
