Horshack from the old ABC sitcom Welcome Back Kotter passed away a few days ago. Rather the actor who pretended to be Horshack passed away.
Kotter ran from 1975 through 1979. When it first came on the air I had the hots for the actress who pretended to be Kotter's wife. Marcia A. Strassman played Mrs. Kotter, and in retrospect was not that sultry. But at 13, I had the hots for every chick on TV not named Maud or Endora.
I remember watching Welcome Back Kotter for the first season or so, but the humor tired quickly even for a a boy strongly possessed of a 7th grade sense of humor.
