This is so devastating. He was such a warm, engaging and generous man. He was one of a kind and will be -- and has been -- extremely missed.

I was just thinking of him last night before Critic's Choice.

Was the 20/20 Debbie Carrie special his last appearance?

Yes. I think his last new TCM intro aired was back in May 2016 in a Guest Programmer segment with Matthew Broderick. I think the last time he was seen regularly on the network was last March.

Robert's old stomping grounds, The Hollywood Reporter, has a great tribute.

I have one objection, though. It was clear Robert had groupies of all ages.

My parents claim that TCM was playing on the hospital TV when I was born. Robert could have very well been one of the first faces I ever saw. He was on my short list of people who should receive honorary Oscars. I've missed his presence since his retirement and now I'll miss it even more. He was as much a part of classic movies as the people who made them.

That was lovely, short but sweet.  Would have been nice if they'd included a picture of the two of them together! :blink:

This one hurt.  Wondering how Miss Cook is doing with the news... they were pretty close if I'm not mistaken.  He was I would imagine her last "contemporary" left from the Lucy era.  Sad. -_-

Let's not forget his great cameo on Kimmey Scmidet.


"And that's how the 1938 musical train wreck Daddy's Boy ends--mid-song, after the crew refused to continue working on the production. Coming up next . . . an encore presentation of Daddy's Boy. What? No! We had a deal!"

Tom shared a picture on FB of Carole and Tom for their 54th wedding anniversary. I knew Lucy was matron of honor, but I forgot Bob served as best man.
