Aww... I grew up with him.

I remember the show "Dinosaurs" spoofed him weekly in their series. They had a "Mr Lizard", where in every episode.. 'Timmy' would get some type of explosive carnage unleashed upon him. Then Dr. Lizard would say "We're gunna need another Timmy!"

To be spoofed on a Prime time TV show when you're on PBS... WOW !

Rest in Peace Don!
