I've spent many hours laughing at the characters Kenneth Mars portrayed in Young Frankenstein, The Producers, and Malcolm in the Middle. There are certain pieces of celebrity news that my father is actually interested in and this is one of them. Bummer.

If this is the wrong place for a thread like this, please move it, mods.

I enjoyed many of the characters he played though the years. I especially got a kick out of his "Fernwood Tonight" character--W.D. 'Bud' Prize and the "chinodontics" contraption he had strapped on his chin to reduce the size of his chin.
