He had an extensive acting career but I'll remember him the most from the "Boy-Scoutz 'n the Hood" episode of the Simpsons.

What a legend. Seems like he's been around forever, and that for the past 30 years, he still looked the same.

RIP.

pretty impressive celeb death trio:

nora ephron
andy griffith
ernest borgnine

--

we were trying to guess how old Borgnine was when he died. I mean, he was middle aged when he won the Oscar for Marty and I think that was 1955. And he seemed to be a middle aged guy when he starred in McHale's Navy.

I would rank his memorable roles as:

Dirty Dozen/Wild Bunch 1 and 1a
McHale's Navy
From Here to Eternity
The Simpsons
Escape from New York
Airwolf
Bad Day at Black Rock

And being married to Ethel Merman

I meant to say memorable roles for me.

I didn't know about the Spongebob thing until I read the obit.

Despite being an animation dork, I don't know if I've seen more than 1 complete episode of the show.

And, of course, even more important than "Airwolf..."

"Super Fuzz"

As Herb Stempel could tell you (unless he was ordered not to), Borgnine's most famous and greatest role was the title role in Marty.

His turn as the storyteller in "Merlin and His Magical Shop of Mystical Wonders" cannot be overlooked.

You're all forgetting his role as the greatest journalist of all time:

Harry Booth, aboard USS Palomino in The Black Hole.
