God rest his good soul, NY City TV kiddie show host, puppeteer, comedian, entertainer and actor Chuck McCann has passed away at 83 years of age. Used to watch all his shows like Let's Have Fun, Laurel and Hardy and Chuck show and his film "The Projectionist." Was my alter ego and grew up watching his shows.

He was one of the many beneficient personalities on WPIX-TV, Channel 11 that we grew up with, along with Officer Joe Bolton, Fireman Todd Russell, Captain Jack McCarthy, John "Zacherly" Zacherle, and The Merry Mailman (Ray Heatherton, father of Joey Heatherton). They shaped our lives with their kindliness, good example and tales of doing good to others.

During the '62 - '63 NYC newspaper strike they made an effort to insulate us kiddies from the labor woes by reading the comics to us over the TV. What a wonderful group of kind souls to have graced our lives.

Chuck McCann, prolific voice actor and comedian, dead at 83
