    I'll certainly miss him. He's done some ridiculously funny stuff, and they don't make comedies like that anymore.

    These parts in Naked Gun made me laugh so much when I was younger, just for Leslie reacting the way he did when he gets a towel thrown at him.

    Damn it. First the Hawks lose again and now this? Fuck.

    RIP Leslie. You helped shape my regard for comedy during my formative years. I owe a lot to you.

    God, yes. When he turns up at the consulate in all his Mountie glory, only to have the following exchange:

    Fraser: You ran away, but you brought your dress uniform with you?
    Buck Frobisher: No, I rented it. If we don't catch him by Tuesday, I have to pay extra.

    His delivery was perfect.

    Yeah, I loved his character in Due South. This might just be because of him being in my favourite episode (All The Queen's Horses - which the below is from).
    Sgt. Buck Frobisher: [on a train taken over by terrorists] I've found the brake.
    Fraser Sr.: What makes you think it's the brake?
    Sgt. Buck Frobisher: It's written right on it, "brake".
    Fraser Sr.: Huh, could be a ruse.
    Sgt. Buck Frobisher: To what end?
    Fraser Sr.: Something criminal.
    Sgt. Buck Frobisher: Are you insinuating that an entire design crew has deliberately mislabeled the key elements of a train?
    Fraser Sr.: It's possible.
    Sgt. Buck Frobisher: I'm talking to a lunatic.

    The tiny handful of episodes makes it all the more special, there is not a single bad second in Police Squad, not one frame is anything less than hilarious.

    Yeah. Honestly, I love the Naked Gun movies, but this is where they came from, and even though it's only 6 episodes, they are arguably even funnier. You can probably get the DVD for a pittance these days.

    One of the directors' commentary tracks on the Naked Gun movies mentions that it was the sheer volume of sight gags in PS! that contributed to its cancellation. Apparently a lot of people didn't get most of the jokes because they weren't actually watching the show; like most TV, it was just on in the background.

    I love Airplane, but the first film of his I saw was the Naked Gun. I don't think I've ever spent the entire hour and a half of a film laughing my ass off before or since. The opening scene where he beats up the dictators and despots of the world is a particular favourite.
