I haven't seen any of his work outside of Toy Story, but he will be missed. :( I just wonder who's going to voice Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story 4. :|

I'll miss him too. It just won't be the same hearing another actor try to impersonate him in Toy Story 4. Along with that, him dying is the final nail in the coffin for insult humor which was already a dying breed once meme humor took over.

I agree. Only he could deliver his jabs with such charisma and class. I would even go on to say that he defined insult humor. Sadly, he died, so we'll never be able to see his genius in the future.

If only they were on Youtube, I'd be watching them right now. Since they aren't, can you tell me what they were about?

Two that I know is that Don Rickles comes to the house and sees this teenage girl watch "Dr. Katz" and says "Oh Boy, Cartoons"! Then Rickles says "Why Me, God"?

The other is Don Rickles promotes Comedy Central and it's lunch break. Someone gives Rickles a suggestion...one was Mexican and Rickles says "blecch"! The next the guy suggests is German...Rickles says "who do you think I am, Colonel Klink"? Frustrated...the guy says "how about a bologna sandwich"? Then Rickles says "What, No Italian"?

But here's a vid where he's with Joe Pesci in a Snickers commercial...

Those commercials sound pretty funny. This was back when Comedy Central actually was good, before they started trying to recapture the success of South Park, and failing miserably.

Though I love South Park, I will agree CC isn't doing too well...I sooooo wish those Don Rickles CC Commercials show-up on YouTube!

I wish they were on Youtube as well. You'd think with all the retro commercials they have, that someone would have a copy.

I remember him mostly for his work as Mr Potato Head in Toy Story. It just won't be the same without him.
