Most remember him as a great wrestler/manager from the WWF of years ago, but I best remember him as Mario on the 80s kids' show "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show."

He was quite the character, I loved his TV work. R.I.P. and thanks for the childhood laughs & memories, Captain.

I was also just reminded of his music video-he appeared in the video for "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" as Cyndi Lauper's father.

He was a true legend. His commentary on one of the Legends Of Wrestling PPV's was EPIC. Wrestling lost a good guy!!
