Mary Tyler Moore Statue In May 2002, actress Mary Tyler Moore was present as cable TV network TV Land dedicated a statue in downtown Minneapolis to the television character she made famous in the sitcom that bears her name. The bronze statue is located in front of the Macy's department store, near the corner of 7th Street and Nicollet Mall. (It was a Dayton's Department Store at the time of the dedication.) The statue depicts the iconic moment in the show's opening credits where Mary gleefully tosses her tam o'shanter into the air in a freeze-frame at the end of the montage. The message on the statue asks, 'Who can turn the world on with her smile?' Mary, of course!

Mary Tyler Moore was one of television's finest sitcoms. The cast was magnificent and the writing was superb. The shows got better with every season.

I would rather watch a rerun of MTM than any show on TV today.

They should have added a statue of that gloomy looking old lady in the back ground of that freeze frame.

Here in the Twin Cities that old lady briefly became a celebrity but she rejected the limelight in order to live a quiet life.

I remember watching an interview with Mary. She said when the puzzled old lady in the background of the opening credits died, her 'role' in MTM was mentioned in her obituary.

What a great talent! I loved that show! She is an Icon in my book. Still looking good in her twilight years.
