Don Grady, a.k.a. Robbie Douglas on "My Three Sons" sitcom, has died

Don Grady, one of the 'sons' in My Three Sons, the popular long-running 1960s sitcom, died yesterday at his home in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Grady was a musical prodigy whose facility with seven musical instruments landed him his first TV role as an original Mouseketeer when the Mickey Mouse Club debuted in 1955. Five years later, he landed the role of Robbie Douglas, one of three boys raised by widower, Steve Douglas, played by Fred MacMurray in My Three Sons which ended in 1972. He also picked up the occasional acting gig on two beloved western series, The Rifleman and WagonTrain.

Grady then devoted his life to his passion -- music.He had a couple of bands (The Greefs and The Yellow Ballon) and composed the songs for the 2008 Disney Princess Party as well as the theme music for The Phil Donahue Show.

Grady, who had just turned 68 on June 8th, had fought cancer for four years.

And mysterio and Motomori, you honestly think that this is "cool" and "interesting"?

Whoever rights cool or interesting what are you talking about! Someone just died and all you right is "cool" or "interesting"? That is so not nice, what is cool about death? It would have been better if you wrote sad rather than anything else.


RIP
