#BoldPop: It’s A ‘Jolly Holiday’ As Dick Van Dyke Celebrates His 90th.

 

1Dick Van Dyke has been part of the Americana lexicon for decades. The ottoman-tripping, murder diagnosing, chimney sweep just celebrated his birthday with Mary Poppins fans.

Check out this video of Van Dyke watching a flash mob of fans (dressed as Mary Poppins characters) dancing and singing to tunes from the film.

Happy Birthday Mr. Van Dyke! Hope it was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Thanks for keeping us laughing.

Chime in: Do you have a favorite Dick Van Dyke show, movie or tune?

Rest In Peace, America’s Sheriff.

The man who kept the peace in the quirky town of Mayberry has passed away.

Andy Griffith who starred in the self-titled show about a man who was sheriff by day, keeping order in the town, and a single dad by night, rearing his son Opie in the right direction has died.

Griffith & Ron Howard

The show was a hit for eight seasons on CBS.

Ron Howard, Griffith’s TV son, tweeted:

Griffith would later play, attorney at law, Ben Matlock in the 1980s.

Griffith was 86.

Also several actors, who worked with him, remember the man they called friend.

Andy Griffith & Barbara Eden

Barbara Eden, who played the manicurist in a episode of ‘The Andy Griffith Show,‘ remembers Andy.

Paul Campbell, co-star in Griffith’s last film, reflects on Andy.

Josh’s Note: Thanks for the laughs. Thanks for the lessons.

Rest in Peace, America’s Sheriff—Sheriff Andy Taylor.

P.S. Stumbled across this really nice tribute, ‘What Andy Griffith Means To Me,’ from a fan and thought I would share it.
