Here is a short article from cbsnews.com about this sad occurance:

Jonathan Winters died Thursday night of undisclosed causes.

A genius of comic improvisation, Winters made no bones about the source of his gift:

"You gotta admit that I am strange," Winters told CBS' "West 57th." "And you know what? I'm proud of it. I'm so proud to be weird and so happy to be crazy."

The only child of an abusive alcoholic father, Winters grew up to create a galaxy of imaginary characters, including Maude Frickert, based on one of his aunts.

Winters' multiple personalities assured him of multiple guest spots on TV talk shows, including Johnny Carson.

Winters had movie roles as well, including the 1963 film "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World."

But in truth, he was best at ad-libbing his own scripts, drawing on his own experiences, including his hospitalization after a nervous breakdown in 1959.

"Reality, as frightening as it is, is very, very funny," he said.

Jonathan Winters was 87.


If you didn't know, Jonathan Winters was the voice actor for Grandpa Smurf in the Smurfs cartoon series and Papa Smurf in the two live action movies and the related Christmas special released with the first Smurfs movie.

When people say giving is better than receiving they are talking about me. Giving someone one of my exploding presents is WAY better than receiving one. ;)
