The baby boomer icon “ART LINKLETTER” has died. He was known for interviewing Ordinary Folks and Children for the daytime TV Show “House Party”
For many Boomers Linkletter was their source of humor. There has been none like him since his show “House Party” went off the air in 197o.
There are no funeral plans or arrangements made at this time. In all likelihood his funeral will be private. The memorials and obituaries, and memorial service will be great!
Art Linkletter, 97, an Emmy Award-winning television personality best known for his candid, chuckle-inducing interviews with kids who said “the darndest things” live on air, has died.
On his CBS daytime variety program, “House Party,” which aired from 1952 to 1970, Mr. Linkletter asked children simple questions.
“What do your parents do for fun?” Mr. Linkletter asked one boy.
“I don’t know,” the boy replied. “They always lock the door.”
