    Oh, that's really sad. Such a sweet lady and wonderful comedienne.

    Sam the Butcher...Suzanne Plechette...Looks like it's open season on 70s sitcom co-stars. Anybody got Isaac from Love Boat in their dead pool?

    First Audrey Hepburn, now Suzanne Pleshette; I'm left with Sandra Bullock. Shoot.

    Jesus, what is this... dead sitcom stars day?

    Aw, Suzanne was gorgeous. And she had a hand in one of the funniest sitcom finales ever on Newhart.

    One of the more memorable voices.

    Of course loved here on the Bob Newhart Show, but also in one of my favorite "guilty pleasure" movies, "Hot Stuff."

  10. Damn, so many of my favorite 70s icons leaving us. As best I can tell, Newhart is still chugging along at nearly 80.

    Suzanne was also in Hitchcock's "The Birds." She was so great in The Bob Newhart Show. And the finale of Newhart where Bob wakes up next to Suzanne is maybe the best sitcom finale ever. And of course late in life she was married to Tom Poston, who starred in both Newhart shows and died within the last year or two.

    Mary Frann, who played Bob's wife in the 80's show, died several years ago of an undetected heart defect in her 50s. Let's hope Bob keeps ticking on into his 90s. His autobiography from a few years ago is a great, quick read.

    RIP Suzanne.

    She was offered the role of Catwoman on Batman before Julie Newmar, but turned it down. [Supposedly she wanted more $$$ than they were offering.] Although I don't think she would have been as good as Julie [and there's certainly no shame in that], I think she could have done well in the role with her seductive voice.

    At least she went on to plenty of success afterward, so that decision certainly wasn't a career-ender. She will be missed.

    I hope she didn't die being pissed at us for neglecting to mention her on the prime-time hottie thread.
