|How I wish to remember this man. RIP|
No, one of my greatest childhood memories stemmed from the television show based on his work, "Little Bear". This show always brought of smile to my face by way of it's quiet charm and large imagination. It was one of the first shows I watched and felt encouraged to dream as big as my thought bubbles would let me. I thank him for such a wonderful inspiration and for introducing the song "Blow the Man Down" to forever be stuck in my head (it already is, upon mentioning).
Not to mention his spit fire appearance on The Colbert Report made him my all time favorite, cranky old man.
Rest well, sir and thanks for the ride.
