The Golem's Top 25 Deaths of 2011 (Part 2 of 5)

20. Alan Sues
One of the funniest of the talented cast of Laugh-In.

19. Jackie Cooper (left)
Former Little Rascal; demonstrated greatness in The Champ, and other roles throughout his decades-long career.

18. Don Kirshner
The villain of The Monkees story, although he was responsible for much of the band's early success.  His Rock Concert was a TV favorite.

17. Sherwood Schwartz
Creator of Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch - two shows I watched almost to the point of total recall in the 1970s.
16. Andy Rooney
His "tell it like it is" commentaries on 60 Minutes were frequently amusing, and always worth watching.
