My favorite scene with Jonathan Winters ever!

Jonathan Winters passed away earlier today. He was truly one of the greatest entertainers of the Twentieth Century and beyond. He was not only a comedy legend, but he possessed some serious drama skill as well. I'm thinking especially of the episode "A Game of Pool" - one of my favorite episodes incidentally - from The Twilight Zone. I guess he's up there now with Jack Klugman in a pool hall in Heaven.

But it was laughter which was Winters' true forte. And of all the work that he did, this is the one bit that always, always most comes to mind when I hear the words "Jonathan Winters"...

Here is Jonathan Winters destroying a brand-new gas station with his bare hands in the 1963 comedy classic It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!

Rest in peace, Mr. Winters. Say hello to Mrs. Fickert for us...
