    He was very funny on Match Game...

    Robert Donner, a character actor who specialized in playing eccentrics, including the crazed prophet Exidor on the popular sitcom "Mork & Mindy," has died. He was 75.

    Donner, who appeared in more than 100 films and television shows, died Thursday of a heart attack at his Sherman Oaks home, said Michael Belson, his former agent.

    On "Mork & Mindy," which aired from 1978 to 1982, Donner led an invisible cult called the Friends of Venus. Whenever the friends whom only Exidor could see got in the way, he uttered his signature phrase — "Mork! Is that you?" — to series star Robin Williams.
    Among Donner's film credits are "Cool Hand Luke" (1967), "Vanishing Point" (1971), "High Plains Drifter" (1973) and "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing" (1973). His final film, the family comedy "Hoot," was released last month.

    Franklin Delano Romanowski? Fine.
    Gunther from Friends? Fine.

    Exidor from Mork & Mindy? There ya go, Jim.

    You're with me, leather.

    I think this is one of the PIR models that Bob nailed.

    Boy, it's strange to see him in anything other than the green fatigues. That's the way it is when someone is so identified with his character.

    Gary Burghoff had one great game-show moment and it was on Bert Convy's "Tattletales," the show that had celebrities on with their significant others, and questions were asked Newlywed Game-style, with the offstage group being shown on monitors. The wives were on stage when Convy asked Mrs. Burghoff if either of them would be willing to be photographed nude for money. She gave her answer, and when the monitor came on, there's Radar with his shirt already off. It got a big laugh, and then one of the other husbands came over and started playfully pawing at Radar. That other guy: None other than Match Game host Gene Rayburn.
