Christmas With Klugman

First, if you want to add our feed, please do so - here is the link. (Let us know if we should syndicate).

Also, if you want more Klugman news, click here, and someone added Jack to their home page.

More to come.

To Help Ease Your Confusion # 6

Another in our continuing series:

This is Jack Klugman - actor, author, bon vivant, and all around swell guy. The kind of guy who deserves to have a blog of his own, and does, thanks to Major League Baseball.

This is Andy Martello, who is a comedian, juggles, and has a strange fascination with penguins. Plus, we have a video recommendation for him. He likes women, though, so that's OK.

This is Bono from the band U2. He also should watch this video.

One major difference - Jack doesn't smoke. That should tell you something right there.

Hope this has made a difference.

Happy Thanksgiving


We are off to celebrate Thanksgiving, so we encourage you to have a good holiday, and to enjoy plenty of turkey, steak, and bourbon.

We are also asking that this become the new standard Thanksgiving picture.

Important News

First, to the Blog This Pal guy - the great one will be in St. Louis. If you're not busy, you should attend.

Also, here is an article about Jack Klugman and nudity. No, it's not dirty.

To Help Ease Your Confusion # 5

For all your unanswered questions:

This is Jack Klugman: actor, author, and divine muse. Obviously, you have excellent taste in character actors since you are visiting this site.

This is Mike Sterling, comics blogger, teen idol, and all around swell guy. Not the kind of guy you want to tussle with. Almost Klugmanian in his demeanor.

This is Gordon from Blog THIS Pal. We do not know what his problem is, but wish he had a better picture on his blog. Other than that, relatively harmless.

Finally, this is Cantinflas.

Hope this has helped, and thank you for visiting.

Murray the Cop

He completes the trinity - not just the Great One, Mr. Jack Klugman. Not just the Divine Randall. We are here tonight to discuss Al Molinaro, aka "Murray the Cop"

Forget his appearance on Happy Days - it is on The Odd Couple where we see the brilliance of Mr. Molinaro. He is to Klugman and Randall what Harvey Keitel was to John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction.

We will worship Mr. Klugman later, but for right now, here is Al Molinaro.

Vic Tayback wishes he were Al Molinaro.

In Praise of Klugman

Although this post makes good points, he forgets the secret of this show.

Jack Klugman.

It's that simple.

Double Blasphemy

According to this news item from the Sci-Fi Channel (who canceled Farscape, which had the Klugman-esque D'Argo), plans are afoot to remake a Klugman classic.

We would like to know the name of the individual who dares tamper with greatness - not just one of the greatest Twilight Zone episodes ever made, but one of Klugman's greatest performances.

Is there no depth to the ignorance of Hollywood executives.

(We realize that is an Orson Welles quote).

We only hope that Mr. Klugman either gets a cameo, and/or a huge amount of money.

No steak and bourbon for Hollywood. None whatsoever.

Six Degrees of Klugman

This is a game you can play when you are bored. Allegedly, you can trace any actor back to Kevin Bacon, who (to the best of our knowledge) is not made of bacon.

However, that seems rather lame, so we here at the Church of Klugman feel that, given Mr. Klugman's status as dramatic actor, comedic presence, and strong advocate, it is much better to play the Six Degrees of Klugman game. Any actor, taken at random, can be traced back to Klugman.

For example, Jonathon Frakes, aka "Commander Riker" on Star Trek: The Next Generation

Co-starred as a doctor on Quincy with our man, Jack Klugman

Meaning that 1) He is cool, 2) He has worked with our idol, and 3) he has one more Klugman point than Patrick Stewart.

(For more information about Quincy, click here)

Tom The Dog

We do not know if he is a real dog, but Tom the Dog is reviewing fall shows.

He forced himself to watch Freddie Prinze, Jr.'s new sitcom.

In short, we can summarize it best - no Klugman, no joy.

It's that simple.

The Church of Fell

We consider this to be a blasphemous site, but since many people confuse Mr. Fell with Mr. Klugman, that is probably to be expected.

Plus, it has a picture of Mr. Roper in a silly hat.

To Help Ease Your Confusion # 4

Here's another part of our educational series:

This is Jack Klugman, the object of our worship.

This is Gordon something-or-other, pop culture blogger,
and well-known tough guy.

This is Joe Don Baker, respected character actor.

If you have questions, please ask them in the comments.

Amongst Civilians

Never let it be said that Mr. Klugman is hungry for publicity - witness this brief blurb about how he uses anonymity.

That does not, however, take away from his accomplishments.

New Book

The Great One Has a new book out, as evidenced by his recent appearance at a publisher's fair.

We strongly encourage everyone to head to their local book store and purchase this book. The cover is attached alongside this post - we will not earn money off Mr. Klugman by doing an affiliate link. Support your local bookstore!

However, we would like to note that Mr. Klugman has done some of the writing, unlike a Canadian actor who bullied his name onto bad fan fiction. (And as we encourage all of our acolytes - just say no to fan fiction).

If you have a problem with this, we suggest you swallow it along with your Cookie Crisp cereal.

Thank you, and please feel free to comment and/or return. Especially our friends in Canada.

Big in Canada

According to our statistics, 3/4 of all visitors to this site are from Canada.

First, our thanks to this site for spreading the news.

Second, hello Canadians!

Thank you for the Kids in the Hall and the Frantics.

However, we are returning William Shatner. He is rather annoying, and he once insulted Wil Wheaton. This blog is definitely pro-Wil Wheaton.

Finally, we mourn the passing of Don Adams, which we stole from this blog. Please send this guy (whose name we cannot pronounce, and which should be changed) plenty of steak & bourbon.

Klugman On The Internet

First, to investigate the musical genius of Jack Klugman, visit this site.

Also, this gentleman takes his inspiration from the Great Klugman.

If you think this template is not appropriate, please let us know. We want to promote Jack's work. He is worth it.

To Help Ease Your Confusion # 3

This is part of our continuing series:

This is Jack Klugman, the sole object of our worship.

This is Mike Sterling, comics blogger, fanfiction author, and "one bad mutha".

This is Norman Fell.

These are all three separate men.

Hope this helps clarify things.

Klugman Vs. Shatner

Here is our objective evaluation of two major icons: Jack Klugman and William Shatner. Please feel free to take notes.

Starship captaincy:

Shatner: 79 episodes of Star Trek, plus seven movies
Klugman: "Death Ship" in The Twilight Zone

Winner: Shatner, but only by a technicality

Positive Image of Law Enforcement

Shatner: TJ Hooker, playing a cop

Klugman: Quincy, playing a medical examiner 20 years before CSI

Winner: Klugman

Twilight Zone appearances:

Shatner - 2 (Nick of Time, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet)

Klugman - 4 (A Passage For Trumpet, A Game of Pool, Death Ship, In Praise of Pip).

Winner - Klugman


Shatner - Leonard Nimoy, annoying dude

Klugman - Tony Randall, not-so-annoying dude

Winner - Klugman

Head covering

Shatner - bad toupee

Klugman - hat

Winner - Klugman

Smells like:

Shatner - "lamb sausage" (according to James Spader)
Klugman - steak and bourbon, with a slight hint of Aqua Velva

Winner - Klugman

So, for all of you Shatner fans, although we admire his work, let's face it - he's no Jack Klugman.

Now go deal. Seriously.

Thursday, September 15, 2005

Jack Klugman.

Our intention is to do for Jack Klugman what Zombie Tom does for brains.

Jack Klugman!

Jack Klugman!

You get the picture.

Wednesday, September 14, 2005

Coming Soon

In a future post, we will discuss Jack Klugman versus another pop culture icon, William Shatner.

Part of it is the behavior or Mr. Shatner's fans - let's face it, no self-respecting member of our church would call Mr. Klugman "the Klug", or refer to its members as "Klugmaniacs."

We will give Shatnerians the intellectual pimp-slapping they royally deserve.

A Month of Klugman

If you wish to worship the Great Klugman in September, check this site for opportunities to do so.

Also, please dig our new template. We changed it because we could, and also because we were experiencing a sugar rush due to Little Debbie snack cakes. Those Fudge Rounds are extremely delectable.

Mike Sterling

We would like to congratulate Mike Sterling on his 1000th post, and hereby want to issue the following public service announcement:

Just say no to fan fiction.

It's what Jack would do.

To Ease Your Confusion # 2

Another in our continuing series:

This blog is the blog of the Church of Klugman.

This blog is the blog of the Incredible Hulk.

Although they look alike, Jack Klugman is not the Hulk.

Please, Hulk, do not smash us. We will buy you all the Red Bull you can consume.

Wednesday, August 31, 2005

Hurricane Katrina

Please keep the people affected by Hurricane Katrina in your thoughts and prayers.

It's what Jack would do.

Thank You, Greg

We would like to thank Greg at Delenda Est Carthago for linking to us without us having to bribe him for the privilege.

We agree that women should not be allowed to vote, and hope someone sends him plenty of steak and bourboun.

Also, Quincy is available on DVD. Please purchase it and watch it, if only to catch Klugman in his prime.

In Praise of Pip

In a different, better world, Jack Klugman would have played Dr. Smith on Lost in Space.

Church Endorsement

This blog heartily endorses Blog THIS, Pal!, but we are unsure why we are doing so.

Wednesday, August 24, 2005

To Help Ease Your Confusion

As a public service, we are posting the following:

This is Jack Klugman, actor, spokesperson, and main subject of this blog.

This is Norman Fell, who not only played Mr. Roper on Three's Company, but also had the Jack Klugman role in Ocean's Eleven.

There's often quite a bit of confusion about these two actors (which is natural, since both were born in Philadelphia), and we hope this post has helped those who were still confused.

For more information, please e-mail us at

Thank you for your support.

Link To Us!

If you would like to link to us, please do - please e-mail us if you would like us to reciprocate.

Help us spread the word, as well as meet hot women.

More wisdom to come.

Profound Truth

Even though the Great Klugman made a guest appearance on Crossing Jordan, it does not even make it worthy. (However, Jill Hennessy is still rather yummy)

Quincy absolutely rocks!

Monday, August 22, 2005


The Church of Klugman heartily endorses Zombie Tom and, for equal time, Zombie Killer.

Jack Klugman has never appeared in a zombie movie, and does not want his brains eaten.

Sunday, August 21, 2005

Jack's Greatest Performance

For those who are true believers, we encourage you to order and view Scene Smoking, which is Mr. Klugman's greatest performance.

Well, that and "A Passage for Trumpet".

Welcome To The Church of Klugman

In this troubled time - a time of popes, of couch-jumping Scientologists, and of unrest, the world is crying out for a spiritual renewal.

It is in that spirit that we have created the 21st Century church - the Church of Klugman.

Why Jack Klugman, you ask? For several reasons:
  • He has made us laugh (in The Odd Couple);
  • He has made us think (in Quincy)
  • He has appeared in the most number of Twilight Zone episodes, alongside Burgess Meredith;
  • Ain't no way we're doing a "Church of Meredith"
So welcome, take your shoes off, and let us begin to worship the man, the myth, the legend that is...Jack Klugman.
