1) Groovy Guy: David Ogden Stiers
The actor, who died March 3 at age 75, was best known for his 1977-83 role as Major Charles Emerson Winchester III on the CBS series, M*A*S*H, which earned him two Emmy Award nominations. Other television credits include the second season of the CBS sitcom, Doc (1976), the 1984 NBC miniseries, The First Olympics: Athens 1896 (which earned him a third Emmy nomination), the 1985 ABC miniseries, North and South (and its 1986 sequel), the first season of the ABC sitcom, Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place (1998), the 1999-2000 CBS sitcom, Love & Money (as Swoosie Kurtz's husband), and the recurring role of Reverend Purdy on the 2002-07 USA Network series, The Dead Zone.

He also appeared in many films, including Drive, He Said (1971), Oh, God! (1977), The Cheap Detective (1978), Magic (1978), Better Off Dead (1985), Creator (1985), The Accidental Tourist (1988), Another Woman (1988), Beauty and the Beast (1991) as the voice of Cogsworth, Doc Hollywood (1991), Shadows and Fog (1991), Mighty Aphrodite (1995), Pocahontas (1995), Everyone Says I Love You (1996), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Meet Wally Sparks (1997), Krippendorf's Tribe (1998), Tomcats (2001), The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001), The Majestic (2001) and Lilo & Stitch (2002).
