Wow, a person I hadn't thought about once since Remote Control was canceled. The first time I ever got cable and tuned into MTV, Remote Control was the first thing I saw (i.e. Kari Wuhrer.)

Kenny wasn't like the other kids (Remote Control!) TV mattered, nothing else did (Remote Control!)

RIP

I also remember him being in a series of Jerry's Pizza commercials when I lived in Maryland.

He introduced me to the greatest game show, to pop culture trivia, to Kari Wuhrer, to the running pope to Adam Sandler and Colin Quinn...you will be missed Ken!

And yet Bob Barker, Wink Martindale and Art Linkletter are still shambling across the landscape, life ain't always fair.

Here's hoping that Ken went as comfortably as possible, in a Craftmatic Adjustable Bed.

Aw, what sad news! Wonder if they'll have some sort of big funeral or event like they did when Macdonald Carey passed away in the mid 90s? [And hopefully it's better done than Mickey's "funeral" ;)]
