    Sad to say we lost one of Station 51's crew over the weekend. "Emergency!" was my favorite TV show when I was a child so this is a punch in the gut for me. Tim was also known to the fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 as Richard in the episode "Parts: The Clonus Horror". He also appeared in several episodes of "Dragnet".

    I loved Emergency as a kid as well as Adam 12. Always liked the character of Chet Kelly. Rest in Peace Tim.

    I always liked the character of Chet Kelly. Tim was in several episodes of Adam-12 and Dragnet including "The Big High". The shocking ending of that one is difficult for me to watch, even today.

    Aaaw man. "Emergency!" was one of my favorite shows as a kid, and I loved Chet's comic relief. A really fun character, great memories.

    That’s pretty cool. Also, Mantooth was quite a good amateur photographer it seems!
