In the last few weeks, we lost six actors who each made their mark in Television (some known more for their roles in the movie universe, but still....) and deserved the full Hat Squad treatment. But I just couldn't bring myself to delve into it, and as the year draws to a close, I'm finding I just don't have the time. (I'm toiling away on the annual Toobits Awards.)
And yet, I didn't want 2008 to end without giving them some sort of acknowledgement, so I'm presenting today as the Tiddlywinkydink a group Hat Squad, showcasing the character (in some cases, characters) for whom these actors were best known in Toobworld.
Barbara Harper Douglas
'My Three Sons'
'Columbo' - "Prescription Murder"
[seen here with Gene Barry]
Sgt. Stan Jablonski
'Hill Street Blues'
'I Love Lucy'
several game shows
MAJEL BARRETT RODDENBERRY
'Star Trek: The Next Generation'
In the new year, with many TV shows still on hiatus from the holidays, I'll have the time to present their TV credits for proper Hat Squad tributes.
