Larry Gelbart (1928-2009)

Larry Gelbart is best remembered for having written or co-written films like "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" and "Tootsie", and, of course, brought M*A*S*H to television all the way back in 1972, and we all know how that became a television icon.

Gelbart passed away Friday from cancer at 81. He started his career as a writer for Sid Caesar on Your Show of Shows, back in television's Golden Age, and has been hailed as one of the greatest----and funniest---writers of all time. Thanks for the memories, Larry. You will be missed.
