I had no idea, Lise. But then again, I've basically been "on strike" about NBC for many years and don't turn them on.

Grommit? He has worked far too long, but kept his positive outlook. You can tell he is genuine.

Oh that makes me sad... I was hoping he would announce my 100th birthday.  But, I guess that would be impossible LOL  Wow on 65 years,   I've prob. watched him for 30 of those years.  Oh, and Ronald McDonald.

Good morning Lise. I had heard he was retiring.  I know he was on TV decades ago.  I won't spill the beans on the character he played, but I don't know if he created that character...

I googled him a few days ago when I heard he was retiring and it said he was 81. That is commendable that he hung in so long. He created Ronald (the clown) McDonald.
