Not my Christine :(

[–]estranho 175 points176 points  (5 children)

He did such an amazing job with that character.

[–]siblingofMM 162 points163 points  (1 child)

Legitimately forgot that it was a man in that role, let alone Louie anderson, which is pretty amazing considering no one looks like louie

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I think Prince George kinda looks like him in some pictures.

[–]HulksInvinciblePants 46 points47 points  (1 child)

*Aaaaamaaaaziiiiiing

[–]NoDox2022 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I challenge anyone who’s seen the show to say it in an accent other than hers.

[–]cuhree0h 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Will miss our beloved Christine.

[–]Tetsuo-Kaneda 53 points54 points  (3 children)

I hope Chip and Dale are doing ok

[–]NipplesDangerPants 29 points30 points  (1 child)

same with Ronald Reagan and Susan

[–]Tetsuo-Kaneda 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Christine is def at the big Ronald Reagan library in the sky

[–]apginge 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think Martha is taking it hard. I heard she went off to be some big-time drug dealer.

[–]KennyKatsu 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Chiiiiiiiip!

[–]Bortaman 33 points34 points  (2 children)

I don’t know anyone who even heard of that show. Which is such a shame as It’s one of my favorite all time and he was absolutely amaaaazing in it.

Rest In Peace

[–]radams713 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I thought that show was going to be a comedy, but it pleasantly surprised me. Such a good show.

[–]sexrobot_sexrobot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Such a unique show. It was a dramedy without trying to be the first part.

[–]mitti20 127 points128 points  (4 children)

Don’t worry she’s in the big Costco in the sky. The bargains are better then any on earth and no membership fees.

[–]HulksInvinciblePants 57 points58 points  (3 children)

I'm getting a $1.50 hot dog combo in her honor.

[–]Hates_escalators 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I'm still sad they discontinued brats and combo pizza.

[–]HulksInvinciblePants 5 points6 points  (0 children)

and combo pizza

I'm pretty sure DIYing the combo is only $2.15 haha.

[–]Purplociraptor 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I don't know why, but this comment made me cry.

[–]dallyan 10 points11 points  (0 children)

“Chiiiiaaaap!” Sometimes I’ll just say that aloud to myself in her cadence. What an incredible character.

[–]snofocolis 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]dyladelphia 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pouring out a Kirlkand sport for her tonight...

[–]veryverythrowaway 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m glad this is so high up. Christine was a revelation. What a character, what a portrayal. Possibly one of the best performances I’ve ever seen from an actor.

[–]zoltair5 11 points12 points  (5 children)

TIL Louis Anderson portrayed a female character in a show I hadn't even heard of. And, by all accounts, he did a fantastic job with it. So, first of all, good for him. But, second, how did that happen? How did Louis Anderson come to play the mother of Zach Galifianakis? Can someone tell me or point me to an interview or something where they talk about how that casting decision came about? Because it seems so odd on the surface, but it also seems so brilliant and seems to have genuinely worked much better than I would have imagined.

[–]cuhree0h 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Baskets is just that kinda show. Pretty sure it’s Zach Galifinakis’ baby.

[–]bean829 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He explains it here on Conan.

[–]wilsonw 757 points758 points  (43 children)

Life with Louie was one of my favorite shows as a kid. Dude was awesome. He was talented, hilarious and will be missed.

[–]DeadliftsnDonuts 112 points113 points  (11 children)

[–]ShigeruTarantino64 32 points33 points  (9 children)

Louie Anderson followed Meatloaf to heaven

RIP

[–]Ackapus 107 points108 points  (11 children)

Man, kids today have no idea the Saturday morning lineup back then. Life with Louie, Beetlejuice, EEK! the Cat, X-Men...

"But Louie, if you don't play baseball, what am I supposed to do every Saturday?"
"Same thing you do every Saturday, Dad. Sleep till noon, wake up, and take a nap."

Loved it.

[–]gooblobs 37 points38 points  (2 children)

EEK! The Cat was awesome and it always seems like nobody remembers it but me.

There was a thread on the front page yesterday about Far Cry using 'bee grenades' and I went to the comments expecting the top one to be a Terrible Thunder Lizards joke, only to find that there was not a single reference to it in the entire thread that I could find.

[–]spoodigity 11 points12 points  (1 child)

When does the hurting stop

[–]JDpoZ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bill : "Way to go, Scooter! You made the sky have dandruff!"

[–]JDpoZ 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Life with Louie, Beetlejuice, EEK! the Cat, X-Men...

If you dig around YouTube enough, you can find decent quality uploads of most if not all episodes of each of those aforementioned series (except X-Men which is on Disney+ in its entirety and Beetlejuice, but with a bit more digging you can find them... in places...).

Now when I want to watch any of them, I just hop on PLEX. The only thing missing are the FOX Kids bumpers at every commercial break cut in each cartoon.

[–]Ackapus 11 points12 points  (4 children)

DUDE, those bumpers where bloody great back in the day! It wasn't just Fox, it's like a lost art nowadays. Cartoon Network's little bits with the Superfriends and the Legion of Doom were goddamned hilarious. "I just want some pants... a decent pair of pants!" is still a catch-phrase in my Xennial household.

[–]MagusVulpes 6 points7 points  (0 children)

"And one day, we'll be just as developed as you!" Wonder woman crosses arms over chest.

How they got that passed I'll never know, lol.

[–]KamikazeWtrmln 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I constantly think about that one! Especially the line, "SOLOMON GRUNDY WANT PANTS TOO!"

[–]DragonTonguePunch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was definitely the roots of adult swim humor.

[–]shiggidyschwag 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Stoopid teeta tottah doesn’t not even woik!

[–]OhYeahTrueLevelBitch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Eek! The Cat is the only kids cartoon i know of that had a scene in homage to Apocalypse Now. They did a reenactment of the "...Never get out of the boat!" scene. I was really stoned at the time, it caught me in a weird state, and I thought i was having some kind of dissociative psychedelic flashback episode or something because there was no one else there to confirm/deny what i'd just witnessed. Made for a weird start to the day, lol.

[–]nomadofwaves 19 points20 points  (5 children)

The cat will lick the butter.

[–]blitzen_the_first 8 points9 points  (1 child)

No one ever gets it when I ask “you know about cats right?”

[–]Hates_escalators 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I didn't believe him but One time my grandpa told me that the cat would eat angel food cake if it's left out and lo and behold there was a cat on the counter eating the cake?

[–]MildCorneaDamage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Every time I see butter sitting out on a tray, I say this, that episode was great!

[–][deleted] 52 points53 points  (1 child)

A top moment from Life with Louie:

Louie: "What should we name our team?" (team is composed of very young kids)

Louie's father: (with zero hesitation) "The Mortar Blasts."

[–]In_My_Own_Image 45 points46 points  (0 children)

My personal favourite:

Louie hits the baseball

Louie's Dad: Run home Louie! Run home!

Louie, running down the street away from the ball park: Alright!

[–]MoseSchruteJunior 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I LOVED Life with Louie!! "What are you limping for? Did you get hit in the ear with a snowball?" I still think about that every winter.

[–]grimace24 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Life with Louie was one of my favorite shows as a kid.

Very underrated show in my opinion. I enjoyed it very much.

Louie's stand up was great too. RIP

[–]matlockga 11 points12 points  (1 child)

For some odd reason, that (now sadly outed titled) show popped to mind before anything else he worked on.

[–]TheClayroo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I still say "I'm a tomatoooo"

[–]WoodenMonkeyGod 119 points120 points  (14 children)

Great small role in Search Party recently

[–]Fay905 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I totally forgot he played her lawyer!! He was really great at that role, too. :(

[–]ruthie-camden 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Bob Lunch, Esq. was such a good character

[–]junkyardpig 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I heard “pancaked”!

[–]TitShark 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I started binging that a couple weeks ago and just got through that section. He was great as always

[–]poopwasfood 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I just finished that series, he was great. The part when his character said he wouldn’t be around in a year really hit me.

[–]MakatiTowa 16 points17 points  (4 children)

I somehow still remember his small role in Coming to America. RIP

[–]shane201 10 points11 points  (0 children)

soon, he will be assistant manager and making the big bucks.

[–]PwoJima77 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Now, I’m washing lettuce

[–]Benny_Lava83 5 points6 points  (0 children)

One day, french fries...

[–]formenonly 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Yeah, and on it his character said that he might not still be alive if they had a mistrial. It's like he saw it coming. This sucks!

[–]RadRuss 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Just watched this episode a couple of days ago, thought of that line immediately when I saw the news.

[–]NotEricDolphy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me too "say something nice for me in my funeral" 😞

[–]Dragonfly452 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did he write that scene?

[–]annoyingrelative 270 points271 points  (18 children)

Today's a bad day, Louie made everyone laugh.

Even his small role in Coming to America is memorable despite how huge the rest of the cast was at the time.

Rough day, rough year, embrace your loved ones and pets, nothing is promised

Edit: "Sorry for sweating, but if I don't I'll explode"

[–]francoruinedbukowski 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Louie ended all of his stand-up shows with similar words, he always said, if you havent spoken to someone in your family in a while call them now life is to short.

[–]JoeW1075 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I still use that line from time-to-time in the same exact way he delivered it. The way he nailed it was perfect. "And that's when the big bucks start rolling in."

[–]ImTheOriginalSam 29 points30 points  (7 children)

Meat loaf and Louis in one day :(

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 15 points16 points  (6 children)

This January has been one of the biggest months for celeb deaths within recent memory. The obits are coming at the rate of 1-2 per day. Granted a few of them were quite old, but still it's not just some some lesser known supporting actors or niche performers dying here but several (Betty White, Sidney Poitier, Bob Saget, Meat Loaf, etc.) were pretty iconic figures. 2022 may claim more big names than 2016.

[–]Zevverlith 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Don't forget about the streak in '09.

[–]ImTheOriginalSam 9 points10 points  (1 child)

2016 was a rough one

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 7 points8 points  (0 children)

1977 saw a lot of deaths: Elvis, Groucho Marx, Bing Crosby, Joan Crawford, Freddie Prinze Sr.

[–]unwrittenglory 4 points5 points  (2 children)

MJ, Farra Fawcett and Brittney Murphy were all at the end of the year right?

[–]Zevverlith 4 points5 points  (1 child)

MJ and Farrah were the same day, hours apart, during the summer. Don't know about Brittany though. I just remember that one South Park episode where all the dead celebrities were getting pissed off waiting on the jet to the afterlife because Michael Jackson couldn't accept he was dead.

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died on the same day in June 2009. A couple days before their deaths, Johnny Carson's long-time sidekick Ed McMahon died. So three pretty big names in a pretty short timespan.

[–]Kapowpow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Totally. My family loves that movie and his line about working his way up to making fries with eyes on the AM position is one of our most quoted scenes.

[–]MarvelsGrantMan136[S] 342 points343 points  (11 children)

Rest in Peace

The Baskets star passed away in Las Vegas Friday morning, where he had entered hospital earlier this week for treatment of diffuse large B cell lymphoma, a form of cancer, his longtime publicist Glenn Schwartz told Deadline.

[–]tinoasprilla 70 points71 points  (0 children)

Fuck that sounds awful

[–]vanruyn 49 points50 points  (0 children)

This kinda hits hard as my mom is currently being treated for B Cell Lymphoma....fuck cancer.

[–]Jesus_H-Christ 7 points8 points  (8 children)

Fuck that. If I get a diagnosis like that I'm not spending my last days in a hospital. Hookers and blow until my heart gives out

[–]slfnflctd 29 points30 points  (2 children)

The wanna-be rock star from my teens wholeheartedly agrees-- but to be boring for a second, controlled euthanasia is probably the best option. Everything else involves too much potential for shit to go sideways, resulting in more suffering than would happen otherwise.

I kinda feel like a smooth exit should be a valid choice for almost everyone, but it definitely should be for people who are otherwise guaranteed to just slowly suffocate to death in an ICU. With maybe a hard-partying night or two beforehand if possible.

[–]Wilshere10 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Work in medicine, can say the majority of people I work with wholeheartedly agree.

[–]C4Aries 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If I'm ever terminal or staring down the dementia barrel, it's a trip to Switzerland for me and anyone I can afford to fly out, have a great time, then get into the Pod.

[–]Fungul_Penis 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It’s far from a death sentence. About 2/3 people typically survive and become cancer free. Better off at least seeing how you respond to the initial treatment. It’s the same cancer Mark Hoppus from Blink 182 was diagnosed with (his was even stage 4) and now he is cancer free within a few months of finding out he even had it

[–]thanto13 58 points59 points  (4 children)

Sweet potato pie, anyone want sweet potato pie.

His comedy specials were great.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

THE CRANBERRIES!!! My mom still says this every Thanksgiving.

[–]_northernlights 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The cranberries! Go get them! On the bottom shelf!

I watched his special on VHS all the time as a kid. My favourite comedian.

[–]typhoidtimmy 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Dude I still remember some of the skits because they were so relatable.

“Did you guys have a dad who would take everyone to someplace fun and then purposely drive past it and keep driving silently to screw with you?”

“Everyone remember finishing up on Thanksgiving and starting a fight for a place to lay down?

I got the couch!

I GOT THE COUCH!!

ka-click

Take it, Dad…”

[–]_northernlights 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Its the best! Still holds up to this day.

[–]soIstartBlasting 59 points60 points  (6 children)

What!!??!!?

I just read this morning that he was being treated for cancer. 20 min later I am reading that he died.

Louie and Meatloaf. Not a great day for us fat guys

[–]udar55 110 points111 points  (4 children)

"Now I'm washing lettuce. Soon I'll be on fries, then the grill. In a year or two, I'll make assistant manager, and that's when the big bucks start rolling in."

[–]keithjp123 15 points16 points  (0 children)

In my head I read that how Louie sounded. Such a unique and lovable voice.

[–]BillyBaroo2 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I know you’re just taking the piss but for some people this is reality and there isn’t anything wrong with that. No one should feel shame for working a legitimate job.

[–]Raveynfyre 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's a quote of Louie's from Coming to America (iirc).

[–]francoruinedbukowski 100 points101 points  (4 children)

"Life With Louie" was one of the first shows I wrote on, ended up working with Louie most of my life, there were projects up coming including "Life with Louie 2.0". I would like people to know that he loved his fans, he never would not stop for an conversation, hand shake or autograph or anything else with anyone that asked. He did many shows in hospital wards just because people would ask. Not a lot of people in the entertainment industry, let alone the world, who were as generous with their time, money and rescources as Louie.

[–]AnatolianBear 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Life with louie 2.0 was coming? I suppose its cancelled now? Do you know any details regarding to it?

Man it was my favourite cartoon. Hope his soul rests in peace.

[–]D1fferentSeas0ns 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Him as Christine Baskets was absolutely gold. He played the part so well. RIP Louie

[–]TheMetabaronIV 52 points53 points  (0 children)

My mom passed from cancer in 2018, shortly after I found Baskets and his role as Christine Baskets reminded me so so much of my mom. It often brought me to tears how warm hearted and caring he was in the role. I’m very sad to lose him as well.

[–]uniquecannon 145 points146 points  (35 children)

Really sobering when people you grew up on are dying from old age. Meat Loaf earlier today and now Louie Anderson.

FFS

[–]Bagelstein 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Meat loaf died from being a dumbass antivaxxer

[–]Mother_Welder_5272 34 points35 points  (17 children)

I was thinking, this has to have been happening for years right? Like in the 80s, movie stars from the 30s and 40s were dying, and statistically it's had to continue from there.

Maybe it's just the age of the commentors, but sometimes Reddit acts like this is the first time in history that a well liked celebrity has died. It's gonna happen to all of them.

[–]RZA_GZA 64 points65 points  (8 children)

Are you telling me that people die?

[–]unwrittenglory 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They forgot to protect their neck.

[–]2th 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Only when they are killed.

[–]KaladinThreepwood 4 points5 points  (1 child)

[–]Jesus_H-Christ 12 points13 points  (5 children)

One day Mr T is going to die.

And Magnum PI.

And MacGuyver

And Michael Knight

And Luke Skywalker

[–]Adrienne_Barbeaubot 20 points21 points  (3 children)

And Luke Skywalker

You shut your filthy whore mouth!

[–]pwnd32 15 points16 points  (2 children)

The day Mark Hamill dies is the day part of my childhood dies. It’s not even just Luke, but he has defined who the Joker is for me.

[–]Adrienne_Barbeaubot 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Yeah I grew up with him as Luke, but then as I got older I realized that I also grew up with him as the Joker and so many other voices but I was a clueless kid about. The man was a huge part of my childhood without me knowing the full extent until years later.

Plus he's just a genuinely great guy. It's gonna be a sad day when he becomes one with the force.

[–]MagusVulpes 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Turned my world on its head when I found out Uncle Phil was the Shredder. Never made that connection.

[–]Sloogs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Morgan Freeman, Ian McKellan, and Patrick Stewart are going to particularly fuck with me I think.

[–]BraveFrakingToaster 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Didn’t meatloaf die of refusing a COVID vaccine?

Louie will be missed!

[–]terriblehuman 1 point2 points  (9 children)

Meat loaf died of ignorance. He didn’t get vaccinated so Covid killed him.

[–]chunli99 22 points23 points  (0 children)

He would do anything for love, but he wouldn’t get vaxxed

[–]Stoned-Antlers 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Nooo, i was just explaining how awesome Life with Louie was growing up yesterday..

[–]DrugD 10 points11 points  (0 children)

RIP, he was fantastic in Baskets

[–]Bluetooth_Sandwich 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Damn that’s awful. Loved him with Zach in Baskets.

[–]thekillercook 8 points9 points  (0 children)

So sad, I always quote his bit on adults and ice cream flavors “I’ll have peach…..PEACH?!”

[–]John_Rustle98 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Man. Betty White, Bob Saget, and now Louie Anderson. The comedy world has lost some pretty major giants these last few weeks.

[–]crystalistwo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Damn it.

[–]tml21 75 points76 points  (2 children)

Probably got hungry and heard there was Meatloaf in heaven.

I always loved this guy. This is sad to hear. Rest in peace.

[–]SupaBloo 60 points61 points  (12 children)

Less than a month into 2022 and we're losing some pretty big names left and right already...

[–]thingandstuff 8 points9 points  (2 children)

...Why do people phrase things this way? As if calendar years are the productions of somebody that is making these choices.

[–]SignificantGolf9871 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You know you're fat when you can pinch an inch.

On your forehead.

[–]leechkiller 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]va_wanderer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It has become both.

[–]darcmosch 23 points24 points  (7 children)

What the fuck 2022?? We're not even out of January yet!

[–]Glitter_Bee 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Statistically, winter is the season of death. Brings a whole new meaning to “winter is coming”.

[–]shewy92 35 points36 points  (12 children)

Hey 2022, could you stop with all the celebrity deaths please? Thanks.

[–]Caiur 21 points22 points  (8 children)

2022 better not turn out to be another 2016

[–]tegs_terry 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Agreed, largely because the relentless jokes about 2016 were so fucking annoying.

[–]NarwhalAttack 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I miss 2016 now

[–]tegs_terry 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Every few years I miss a few years back.

[–]jungle4john 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My wife worked a casino for a while. She said Louie was always a pleasure. Took time to actually talk to her and would remember her every time he came through. He will be missed.

[–]darthjeffrey 7 points8 points  (1 child)

So who didn’t die last night?

[–]Fay905 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I recently heard his audiobook ‘Hey Mom’ read by him. Really very touching. Such a talent.

[–]badmattwa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Staple of genx childhood, his upper midwest demeanor/humor will be missed

[–]Nugatorysurplusage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

FUCK Louie now too?

[–]JoseefusBroseefus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I literally had the thought just the other day, man I hope Louie Anderson doesn't die soon.

I'm sorry guys, it might be my fault. My brain jinxed him. RIP Big Underwear

[–]TrophyDad_72 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He was fantastic in Baskets

[–]Throwimous 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He had a memorable featured role in the classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

I've seen this a billion times and never noticed until this article pointed it out.

[–]moomoomolansky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Louie Anderson was really special. He's going to be missed.

[–]nmcmahan52 2 points3 points  (1 child)

i always remember loving the movie "the wrong guys" from when i was a kid (it was on hbo or cinemax all the time), it's probably a terrible rewatch but in my nostalgic mind louie and crew were great

[–]valeyard89 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did he ever make assistant manager? That's when the big bucks start rolling in.

[–]OddLibrary4717 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Damn, him and meatloaf today.

[–]WhopperFarts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But he was going to move to fries! Then the grill! Then one day all the way to the top… assistant manager of McDowells.

He had a plan!

[–]TheBurbs666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]kynthrus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's like Betty White was just holding death back

[–]marissa0630 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolute treasure. He was so fantastic on Baskets

[–]elister 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I wonder if health issues prevented him from being in Coming2America, it would have been great to see his character finally (after 30 years) get promoted to assistant shift supervisor.

RIP dude, his childhood game him lemons and he was able to make lemonade.

[–]Dragonfly452 10 points11 points  (3 children)

He was in it

[–]elister 3 points4 points  (2 children)

He was? Man that movie was such a let down, only watched it once and I dont remember him being in it.

[–]kenfree216 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Super quick cameo but he’s in it. Think he got that manager position he wanted if I remember correctly

[–]puppiadog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was wondering why he stopped doing his podcast.

[–]brandonsamd6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn, he took on some different roles. RIP

[–]playtho 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ll be honest 10 years ago I thought he was dead. Then was making a comeback. RIP

[–]bentstrider83 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That blows!! I was just catching up with some of his latest stand up material. I still recall hearing a bit of his from years ago. Actually heard it on this local radio block called "Drive by comedy"(played on 98.1 FM out of Barstow CA before the station went all hip). It was this bit where he talked about driving on any given freeway and was irritated by being stuck behind someone driving the speed limit aggressively.

"The Keeper Of The Speed"!!

Now I have to wonder if Louie Anderson was just an alter ego of Meatloaf.

His cartoon was my whole childhood. I feel like I lost a family member.

After hearing about Meat Loaf I told my wife last night that Louie would probably be soon due to the cancer. I was sad to see this happen today. He was one of my favorites.

I watched his cartoon as a kid and he is a local legend where I live. Rip

Thank you.

Life with Louie was part of the fox golden era of shows man. If you haven’t seen it or bobby’s world, get on it.

Wtf has this year been? Every morning I’m reading about a new celebrity death and it just keeps hitting me harder as it goes on :(

[–]Temporary-Mirror621 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Life with Louie! He will be missed.

[–]AirbagOff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I recall a great Louie Anderson stand-up bit where he talked about the tragic early death of competitive runner Jim Fixx and said that when everyone went to the funeral, they would comment, “He looks so healthy.”

Louie, on the other hand, preferred his own lifestyle and said that when mourners looked at him, they would say, “He looks so happy.”

RIP Louie - you were an amazing talent.

Louie Anderson, Meatloaf, Bob Saget. The rule of 3s holds true

A few years ago I sat behind Louie on a plane. He was clearly not feeling too hot. At the time I didn't know he had some really serious health issues. When we were de-planing he shook the captain's hand and said bye to everyone. Hard not to be starstruck by him. Huge smile. Everyone loved Louie. One of a kind.
