Which of these passings affected you the most?

It really sucks that Phil Hartman died so prematurely. He was so funny voicing Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz in The Simpsons.
dietotaku (7 days ago)
Definitely Hartman. I'm still sad about all the characters I'll never see or hear again because he's gone. Gotta ask, though... why do your captions say "passing" even when the audio says "death" or "died"?

When the classic game 'Legend of Zelda and the Ocarnia of Time' was being developed, the voice actor that was to be links voice passed away after falling down a flight of stairs. They had finished Links karate grunts, yells and grunts when the person died. It was decided that in their honor, Link would only use those sound files for the entire game.

There was also Dolph Sweet who played the character of Police Chief on Gimmie a Break! He passed in 1985 and he was written off as if he died on the show.

I thought 0:30 I thought she said Mr. Cooper. "Mr. "Coop" Cooper is dead??".

Nicholas Colasanto was the best. Coach was one of those characters that surpassed all the rest in the series. When he passed, “Cheers” lost some, but not all, of its charm. We continued to watch the show, but we missed Ernie Pantusso. Thanks for the laughs, Coach.
senorkaboom (5 days ago)
Wait! Wait!! Wait!!! I don’t understand. Hartman’s character is depicted as having a heart attack and dying in the series when he was actually shot to death by his real life wife. Why wasn’t that the way he died in the series? I mean, realism is realism.
Atle Kristiansen (5 days ago)
Not surprisingly, I have yet to see any comments mentioning Rock Hudson, who died while having a role on "Dynasty"...

All of us Highlander fans miss Darius. Werner Stocker died from an inoperable brain tumor at 38. The entire series had to be re-written.

John Ritters death was truly sad. He died simply because doctors were lazy and didn’t spend a few extra seconds looking at his X-rays.

Woody was great but Coach was a legend with come of the greatest lines on TV. "Is there an Ernie Pantusso in the bar?" - "That's you Coach" - "Speaking"

What about Jack Soo in Barney Miller? Or Redd Foxx in The Royal something or rather. The most obvious omission is Freddie Prinze in Chico and the Man.

The sopranos is the greatest show ever on television, and we will never know how the story was truly meant to unfold because Nancy Marchand died a mere half season before her story arc was meant to reach its climax...was she going to be murdered by her own son???? The world will never know, and her portrayal as livia was arguably the best on the show...you truly hated her, and that’s the mark of the most powerful acting possible!!! A little taste of her character——her husband suggested moving the family (her, her husband, and three children) to Las Vegas to take advantage of the burgeoning casino business in the late 1960s, and livia’s response referring to her children “I’d rather smother them with a pillow, then take them to Nevada”

Americans have to stop taking make-Believe for reality. The Leftist Communist media have been sliming and ridiculing President Trump since he won the election to the Whitehouse. In truth Americans were wise to avoid electing Hillary and the Pro-Death agenda of the left. I made a mistake and voted for Clinton, but in the 2020 election I will vote for Donald Trump, mainly because I know that when the media hates and acts against anyone as they have this President, we must all go in the opposite direction, lest evil triumph with lies.

correction a aortic dissection happens when the arterial wall becomes so thin that the pressure of blood flow through the heart causes a rupture . most often caused by a genetic abnormality like Marfans disease.

You completely glossed over the fact that Mr. Hooper was written out of the show because he was portrayed by someone who could be recognized. Kermit continues on decades after Jim Henson died. Bold move my ass!

For John Rotter they also addressed his passing in the other show he had been on for a bit. He played the father of Zach Braff’s character on Scrubs.

How about Catherine Coulson, The Log Lady from Twin Peaks. Her last phone conversation with Michael Horse (Hawk) was quite emotional: "Hawk, I'm dying".
AquilaSol (20 days ago)
I'd like to add Don S. Davis to that. He played Major General George Hammond on Stargate SG-1 for 10 years, and died in 2008 of a heart attack. In the series finale of the spinoff Stargate Atlantis, they mention the character died of a heart attack, and they renamed a spaceship after him. It's double sad because both shows were over at that point.

..what about Alan Rickman from the Harry Potter series? He played Severus Snape and died in the 7th movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Atle Kristiansen (5 days ago)
Even if you include movies, the death of Severus Snape was written into the script, and probably the book, from the start. He did not die because of the actor's death, which happened about 5 years later. And since this was based on books, had Rickman died earlier, they would have found another actor to play the part, like they did with Dumbledore...
Peter Lewerin (22 days ago)
lol The subtext generator has a filter that renders all words related to "dying" as "passing". Then, at 6:51, the character Death is mentioned, and the name is also translated as "passing". (And yes, it becomes "kiss of passing".)
artchic528 (22 days ago)
Mrs. Wolowitz's death really got me the hardest because her tendency to keep every scrap of leftover food in her fridge was a lot like my late grandmother. We went through her freezer and fridge after her sudden passing and brought all the baked goods (sweet breads and such) to the gathering after the memorial service. Grandma was always one to be prepared for every contingency, even having food prepared to serve posthumously.

In our stress to control and politically manipulate the minds of the young (good intentions or not)... we are losing characters and narratives that are so valuable and warm (Sesame Street, Peanuts, mr Rogers, etc), characters that are such a warm and sincere voice to all children

I agree with sesame Street telling children he had died, it's good practice for them to learn to deal with emotions when it's someone close to them. Years ago when it was on in the UK and I was teaching we'd do letter assessments. Kids would say zee not zed, Do you watch sesame Street I'd ask. I get an enthusiastic nod and ticked it as correct. Who really cares if they say zee or zed, just a letter name not the sound.

Elizabeth Sladen aka Sarah Jane Smith on Doctor Who and the Sarah Jane Adventures :( One of those characters and actresses that you instantly love.

But I don't think her death was reflected by Sarah Jane's death being referred to on screen. Nicholas Courtney (Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart), on the other hand…
