Hey Norton!

Art Carney, Jackie Gleason's best bud and comedic foil on The Honeymooners, died Sunday at his home in Connecticut; the family did not make any announcement until today, after private services.

Carney, who went on to win an Oscar as the first half of Harry and Tonto, was 85.

Do not confuse Ed Norton with Peter Norton, who used to make useful products for your PC.

Then again:

Edward Horton? Wasn't he the narrator of the Fractured Fairy Tales on "Rocky and Bullwinkle"?

That was Edward Everett Horton.
