TV Personality
    (March 13, 1942-September 30, 2018)
    Born in Manchester, England, United Kingdom
    Host of the Thames Television children's show 'Rainbow' (1973-92)
    He learned 'Rainbow' had been cancelled from the tabloids rather than from the producers.
    After 'Rainbow,' he had trouble finding acting jobs: 'My problem is that I worked with puppets.'
    Unable to get enough acting gigs to support himself, he worked stacking shelves in a supermarket, then became a taxicab driver.
    He was such a fan of Scotland's Dundee United football team that he asked the producers of 'Rainbow' to make the puppet Zippy tangerine to match Dundee United's colors.
    He poked fun at his fall from the top, advising 'Don't end up like me' in an investment firm's commercial.
    He said, 'I t happens to me so often. Someone will come up to me and say 'Thank you for being part of my childhood.''
