  1. OMG, I don't believe it….as much as I resent the 1980s, I always liked him on Square One TV, he always was SUCH a cut-up, a real card if there ever was one…..math never was my forte, but still, it gave new meaning to intelligent comedy, when it comes to kids and families….honest , no lie…..one of the few, if any, bright spots when I was going to middle school in the mid-80's. Also, since it came from the creators of Sesame Street, but then again, just what do THEY know????? Or when it comes to drivel like Full House or Zoobilee Zoo, OMG, I feel like I want to puke, you have no idea…..

    My condolences go out to Reg's entire family right now.
