In Memoriam: Suzanne Pleshette and Allan Melvin

Classic television took a big hit last night by losing two of the most recognizable better halves in the pantheon of 70's sitcoms: Suzanne Pleshette and Allan Melvin. Both passed away quietly last night in different parts of Los Angeles but thankfully for us Emily Hartley, wife of Bob from The Bob Newhart Show and Sam the butcher, Alice's boyfriend from The Brady Bunch will live on in pop culture's version of the eternal flame - reruns.

Uh, that's EMILY Hartly, Paul. You're confusing her with James Garner's Polaroid comercial sidekick: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0366866/


Nice tribute, though!
