Not to be confused with our lovable fellow forum member "Big Tony", Al Molinaro, best known for playing "Big Al", on Happy Days, passed away today, at 96.

I grew up on shows like Happy Days, The Love Boat, Barney Miller, The Odd Couple, etc., so, whenever one of the stars from these things pass, it makes me think back to simpler times. Remember "rabbit ears"? Lol Chuckle Tongue

Great show. He also played Murray the cop on The Odd Couple. He'd play poker with the guys. I could be wrong, but I believe aside from Penny Marshall, he's the only one left from that show. Geez, talk about another time, and another era.

RIP Big Al.

Terrific actor and show for sure. The shows back then were enjoyable and made family time better.

I miss being a kid watching those old shows. I remember the rabbit ears on the big old console with the vhf and uhf knobs that you had to get up and go turn with your hands to change channels. Click click click click

Bending the rabbit ears helped as well, until they broke. Or even tying wire from one to the other.

I remember getting something like this from a relative way back when, it it wouldn't work, we found other uses for it.

Ha! That's crazy. As primitive as those times were, man, they were GOOD times. There's something to be said for simple Yes
