While his greatest fame came from his teaming with Bill Cosby in I Spy, those of us around in the 80s remember Robert Culp (August 16, 1930 - March 24, 2010) as over-the-top FBI agent Bill Maxwell in The Greatest American Hero. A Reagan conservative who snacked on dog biscuits, wore a "Happiness Is A Warm Pistol" t-shirt, and was dedicated to serving the "guvmint," Maxwell was a hoot and Culp a joy to watch as he chewed the scenery and managed to hold his own against a liberal, whale-loving high school teacher with "magic jammies."

Thanks for all the good times, Bob. It made those Reagan years a bit more tolerable.
