    He was associated with some of the worst TV shows on Record (Green Acres, Petticoat Junction). Did not know he was still alive. I guess you have to be a certain age to appreciate this particular character actor. RIP

    Damn. I loved Sam Drucker.

    I think I'll play some Cabbage, or maybe Monotony, tonight in his honor

    Clearly you meant to say "best" instead of "worst" when you were talking about Green Acres.

    Don't forget, he was one of us: publisher of the Hooterville World Guardian.

    Also appeared in The Beverly Hillbillies as Granny's love interest. RIP

    Newspaper publisher, businessman, postmaster.

    The Ben Franklin of his time.

    The show did have its moments (and a handful of good characters, too).

    But Arnold Ziffel was the Cpl. Klinger of the show. Amusing in small doses, but the shows got progressively worse the more airtime they receive.

    Take that back. Arnold never wore a dress.

    Green Acres was great. Petticoat Junction was great. Beverly Hillibillies was great. And Frank Cady was great.

    Outlived Eddie Albert by seven years, Eva Gabor by 17 years.

    Lori Saunders was great.

    All the girls were great. My family had three pet squirrels named Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo and Bettie Jo.

    Interesting to note that, while Frank Cady did outlive Eddie Albert by seven years, Eddie actually lived to an older age. He was 99 when he died.

    Sam Drucker was also the Postmaster of Hooterville. I wonder if he got a govt pension when he retired.
