    Believe that Mel Brooks was in an Engineer unit in WWII and tormented/teased the Jerry along the front lines. Read that someplace once many years ago.

    Johnathan Winters, USMC - I dont question this. But does anyone but me have a hard time visualizing that? He must have been the jokester of his platoon.

    After serving with the Marines during World War II, Winters moved to New York, where he began performing in comedy clubs. His talent for mimicry and invention of a wide range of characters won him his first television appearance on The Gary Moore Show (1954). From 1955 to 1957, he starred in his own 15 minute television show—The Jonathan Winters Show, but became better known for his frequent appearances on The Tonight Show and The Jack Paar Show in the late 1950s. After quitting the nightclub circuit in the early 1960s, Winters began to concentrate on his television career with frequent appearances on The Steve Allen Show, The Andy Williams Show, and his own television specials. In 1963, Winters made his cinematic debut as a treasure-hunting mechanic in the screwball comedy It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
    In 1981, Winters joined the cast of the popular sitcom Mork and Mindy, which starred Robin Williams and Pam Dawber. In 1994, he appeared with Alec Baldwin in the fantasy-adventure The Shadow and with an ensemble that included Elizabeth Taylor, Halle Berry, Rosie O’Donnell, and John Goodman in The Flintstones. Winters’ most recent film project was the big-budget family comedy The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000), which featured performances by Robert DeNiro, Rene Russo, and Jason Alexander.
    Considered a distinguished voice actor, Winters has contributed to numerous cartoons including The Smurfs, The Little Prince, Paul Bunyan, and Peter and The Wolf.

    May Jonathan Winters USMC Rest In Peace.

    Terrorists in Iraq sometimes keep pets. At night, they take their little doggie out for a walk. I guess they forget that the US Military has nightscopes. :lol:

    "Engage. Fire." The dog survived.
