    May I approach the bench, your honor...?

    He was younger than me - and had more talent. How is this even fair...

    From Cheers to Night Court to Dave's World, Harry was a huge part of my TV diet growing up. May he rest in peace.

    Wow... even though I haven’t heard of him in years, this is shocking news :(

    He always seemed to have that regular nice guy attitude... kinda like Johnny Carson, I guess...

    RIP Mr Anderson

    'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson Dead at 65

    Exclusive Details
    [​IMG]Harry Anderson, who became a household name starring in the massive TV hit, "Night Court," has died.

    We spoke to Harry's son, Dashiell, and he tells TMZ ... his father passed away of natural causes. Anderson rose to fame playing Judge Harry T. Stone on the sitcom that ran from 1984 to 1992. Before "Night Court" he frequently appeared on "Saturday Night Live."

    The actor died at his home Monday in North Carolina. All authorities are saying is that no foul play is suspected.

    Anderson also appeared on "Cheers" and starred in his own sitcom, "Dave's World," which ran from 1993 to 1997.

    He was also an accomplished magician and even opened a magic shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans. He also had a nightclub in the French Quarter called Oswald's Speakeasy.

    In his later years, Anderson kept a low profile, only occasionally appearing in shows like "30 Rock," "Son of the Beach" and "Comedy Bang! Bang!"

    He's survived by 2 children and his wife, Elizabeth Morgan.

    Anderson was 65.

    I was just thinking the show would have a ripe candidate for a reboot...

    I loved him on "Night Court" when I was a kid and was always mesmerized by his skills when he'd pop up on a talk show doing tricks. He seemed like a good guy, too. I hope he has a table down in front and groovin' to his beloved Mel Torme. RIP

    I loved "Night Court" as a kid. It had a level of adult (yet juvenile) humor that was missing from most other sitcoms of the era, even "Cheers".

    Cosby Show->Family Ties->Cheers->Night Court->L.A. Law (or Hill Street Blues) = best 3 hour block of network TV programming in the history of the world.
