    So sad. I still have the doll that was given to me when I appeared on KIDS SAY THE DARNEST THINGS. A great man and wonderful memory for me.

    Yikes, no offense, but I had no idea he was still alive until now...
    RIP
    Just my opinion, of course.

    His book on public speaking was so very helpful to me in junior high - still ranks as one of the most important books I have ever read.

    RIP

    Me as well!
    He is/was so PRECIOUS!
    I remember seeing him on a late night show a few years back (he was already in his 90's) and he said he keeps his mind alert and fresh by remembering something--anything--everyday. I have tried to adhere to that everyday (sometimes I forget :-) ).

    God rest his soul and condolenses to his family and friends who were blessed to know him personally.

    R.I.P. Thanks for the love & the laughter.

    I remember being a little kid and faking illness to stay home from school and a staple of that "sick day" was, of course, lying on the couch and watching Art Linkletter. He made me feel better even when I wasn't feeling bad in the first place.

    What a wonderful man! He brought us a lot of joy and laughter. He will always be remembered as one of the most beloved people in show business.

    The video is so sweet. It was so nice to see him enjoying the tribute and seeing the audience was all made of people who had been on his show.
