The Flopcast

It's time for a Flopcast-style look back at those we lost in 2015. The Mayor of Chickentown joins Kevin and Kornflake as we recall some of our favorite recently-departed actors, musicians, writers, artists... and maybe even the guy who invented plastic pink flamingos. Including: Stars from The Dukes of Hazzard, Happy Days, The Partridge Family, Eight Is Enough, The Beverly Hillbillies, and yes, Archie Bunker's Place; the voices behind Space Ghost, Pac-Man, Mr. Slate, and the Chiquita Banana; the singers of "Stand By Me", "Unforgettable", and "The Thrill Is Gone"; the creators of Wolverine, Zatanna, Marmaduke, and Barbapapa; and many more. (Did we mention the flamingo guy?) Hey, 2015 was the year we lost Mr. Spock, Jimmy Olsen, and Batgirl -- so feel free to cry if you want to, Lesley Gore-style. But then feel free to enjoy yourself with a Stan Freberg record, a Christopher Lee Dracula movie, or just a giant cup of coffee. (Kornflake really needed coffee this week.)
