What a terrible week for losses. I swear I don't go looking for obituaries. I always loved how much of a curmudgeon he was in interviews. He was a perfect interview for Stephen Colbert.

Steve Cobert worshiped Maurice Sendak and did some really nice segments with this guy. I have to say, "Where the Wild Things Are" was big in my 1st and 2nd grade classrooms! Alligators All Around was pretty popular in those days, too.

That last interview was hilarious. And apparently Sendak has a blurb on Colbert's new book "I Am a Pole (And So Can You!)" -

He was a character all around. He'll be missed.

In the Night Kitchen traumatized me. Where are that kid's skivvies? I never trusted Oliver Hardy again afterward.
