Don Rickles, the famous insult comedian, has sadly passed away at the ripe age of 90.
Famous for calling people “hockey pucks” and providing the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story movies, Rickles was a legend in Hollywood.
Of course, we remember him for his work with the Muppets. In 1997, he appeared on an episode of Muppets Tonight as one of several big stars along with Coolio, Ed MacMahon, Fred Willard, and Bernard Shaw.
When Kermit the Frog was demoted to becoming “Virgil the Monkey”, Rickles stepped in as a temporary banjo-playing frog. You can watch that in living color below:
