R.I.P. Det. Frank Drebin

Leslie Nielsen, who traded in his dramatic persona for inspired bumbling as a hapless doctor in “Airplane!” and the accident-prone detective Frank Drebin in “The Naked Gun” comedies, died on Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He was 84. (via Yahoo!)

“What’s Police Squad?”

“It’s TV show full of brilliant, dumb jokes, but that’s not important right now.”

  1. It’s a sad day indeed.

    “Surely you can’t be serious.”
    “I am, and don’t call me Shirley.”

    He will be sincerely missed.
