Art Linkletter Passes at age 97 Art Linkletter, whose "People Are Funny" and "House Party" shows entertained millions of TV viewers in the 1950s and '60s with the funny side of ordinary folks and who remained active as a writer and speaker through his ninth decade, died Wednesday. He was 97. Linkletter died at his home in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles, said his son-in-law, Art Hershey, the husband of Sharon Linkletter. "He lived a long, full, pure life, and the Lord had need for him," Hershey said. Linkletter had been ill "in the last few weeks time, but bear in mind he was 97 years old. He wasn't eating well, and the aging process took him," Hershey said. Linkletter hadn't been diagnosed with any life-threatening disease, he said.

Aw, darn.

Just yesterday I watched a clip of Art as the mystery challenger on What's My Line. I checked to see if he was still alive.

RIP, Art.

I remember watching his program back then and really enjoyed it. What a great loss!

I barely remember House Party, though somehwere I have a paperback of Kids Say The Darndest Things.

He was married to the same spouse for more than 74 years! That has to be a Hollywood record!

What a delightful man. I'm sure he got a few bear-hugs from kids who thought of him as a beloved family member.
