Lear was born on July 27, 1922 in New Haven, Conneticut.
Jimmy Walker's timing, physical comedy, and, yes, catchphrase made him the surprising breakout star of Good Times.
The story centered on two nine-year-old friends, one white and one black, in the Depression-era South.
In 1942 Lear dropped out of Emerson College in Boston to join the United States Air Force.
The next year, Michael J. Fox became a household name playing Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties.
Despite Bunker's famously conservative views, Lear is an open and active liberal.
Wowee! That includes 14 nominations and 4 wins for Lear.
Sanford and Son enjoyed a Friday night timeslot for its entire run.
