    Drop Dead Fred, weird movie about a girl's mischievous imaginary friend who is still with her when she's grown up. I remember the kiddos watching that when they were young. That's the only show I remember the guy in, though probably a lot of his stuff was British.

    He was my favorite in The Young Ones, probably because in a group of over-the top anarchists, he was the one the farthest out there. Those guys made me laugh, and made the Jackass guys look like preschool nap time. I always assumed he was much older than he was.

    Cause of death was released. He had a fatal heart attack after jogging.

    On a related theme, in my day (What day was that, Nicky?) 'jogging' didn't exist.
    We had another name for it. We called it running.

    Remember Jim Fixx, world-class runner who died mid-stride on a training run
    because he over-hydrated, diluting his electrolytes to a level where his body
    couldn't sustain function.

    Trust me, running (or jogging if you insist) isn't all that. On the other hand, sitting
    on one's ass all day isn't all that either. :shrug:

    Well said... Jogging/Running isn't good for your back or knees either.

    Which is why I am buying a pool table the day I retire. Aerobic? Hardly. But it will keep me moving and keep my mind active, without doing much damage. Join me...it'll be a movement. Everybody buy a pool table!

    Still, a bit of an ironic take from someone with that screen name. :grin:

    I'm not. Are you a feline named Tom? Not all nicks are exactly as they seem.

    Yes him was great on The Young Ones.

    Jogging to keep health proves that does not work. If him did not go put jogging him would have been fine.

    He wasn't Vivian, he was Rik.

    Adrian Edmonson was Vivian.
