Winters was a master of improv. His facial contortions were the most memorable and eclectically funny. His characters, like the dirty old lady Maude Frickert were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio.
“The Jonathan Winters Show” pioneered dual screen videotape technology in the 1950’s. He was introduced to millions of new fans in 1981 as the son of Williams’ silly space guy in the final season of ABC’s “Mork and Mindy.”
