   A familiar face, he was a staple on the small screen. He had a recurring role in Get Smart, and guest starred in such sitcoms as Bewitched, Green Acres, That Girl, Fantasy Island, and Punky Brewster. Al had a part in Freaky Friday. The television version of The Odd Couple was produced by Garry Marshall, and the portly actor became a favorite in his lineup of family-oriented faire, including Happy Days, where he replaced Pat Morita as the owner of Arnold’s Diner.

   Al and fellow cast member Anson Williams opened a chain of diners throughout the Midwest called Big Al’s. After retiring from acting in 1992, he did return to appear in a Weezer music video; and later, he flourished as a spokesmen in commercials.       AL MOLINARO —>
