Happy 100th birthday, Sid Caesar!

I mean no disrespect when I celebrate the late comedy icon's 100th birthday and say, wow, I can't believe he would have been "only" 100 today. Growing up, he seemed at least "a generation or two ago" when he appeared in guest spots on cartoons, variety shows, and in ABC showings of Grease. He was a comedy legend, yes, but a comedy legend, as in, someone who was from the past, yet he was only in his fifties and early sixties:

Of course, his prime was a couple of decades before the heart of the BOTNS era, but he was still a constant presence in the TV of the 1970s and 1980s. Looking at his resume on IMDB, I'm surprised there aren't as many credits as I expected. It just seemed like he was always around.
