Back in the late 80s I had a subscription to SI and they would always send a video with your paid subscription. One year they sent NFL Football Follies, and it featured Winters doing all kinds of silly skits before the video segments. It was SO cheesy, yet funny.

His facial expressions were always great.

RIP

Loved "Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World". Winters always had a brilliant mind for slightly twisted characters. I think that he never stopped being funny..I think that as times and tastes changed, his humor wasn't seen as outrageous or brilliant anymore-simply old fashioned.

R.I.P.

RIP to JW

I was never a big fan of his, but he was a comedic icon for sure.

Times change and what was once cutting edge or controversial become passé, but funny is funny and he was always that. He never devolved like Robin Williams into just babbling and talking fast, he could create real characters on the spot and make it cohesive. I saw him do this as recently as 5 or 6 years ago. He was a really special talent.

I will always remember him as the dead pool champ who comes back to life to play a game vs Jack Klugman on the Twight. Light Zone
