    "My World and Welcome To It" may be the most underrated, overlooked comedy in television history.

    Fond farewell to Mr. Windom and his work.

    My first memory of Mr. Windom is his portrayal of the Star Fleet captain who pilots the Enterprise shuttle craft into a doomsday machine shaped like a gigantic turd.

    RIP to a fine actor.

    Agree. I was just a kid but was fascinated by the Thurber-type cartoons within the live action sitcom.

    Gotta be a good actor to pull that script out.

    RIP to a wonderful actor. Was just a kid too, at the time, but liked "My World And Welcome To It" (Thurber-based comedy). Looking back, he was perfect for it.

    Any one familiar with Bill "The Fox" Foster, the beer-drinking guru, might know that Fox had a little pub in Santa Monica and William Windom was a regular. Not as a performer or celebrity guest, but as a member of the crowd drinking beer and signing dirty songs.
