    I was lucky enough to see him in the LA production of "The Producers" a few years back (as Leo Bloom, of course), and I've even watched a couple of stinkers just to see him shine in them. ("Santa Clause 3," anyone?)

    He's done a few animation voices recently, with his usual insane elan: a scatterbrained robot in Disney's "Treasure Planet," and my favorite, Cruella deVil's...boyfriend(!) in the direct-to-video "101 Dalmatians" sequel as an intellectual German artist - black turtleneck, sunglasses, the accent, etc. (My favorite quote, when Cruella ditches him: "Your words sting like the blows from the fists from a very large dockworker.")

    I never saw much of his talk show from a few years back (not really his style), but I understand he did quite a few in-character sketches during its run; it would be great if they could compile them onto a DVD. (Maybe they're on YouTube; I'll have to poke around there, see if I can come up with any.)

    You can't stop progress (or is that "profit"?)

      Just did a quick browse...didn't come across anything that looks like it came from his talk show, but TONS of clips of him on all the late night shows, Muppets Tonight, and clips from his 1980's TV special (he does a great Jerry Lewis).
