While Don Rickles had been cracking people up for decades, there's a whole generation who will only know the late comedy legend from one role: Mr. Potato Head.

In all three of the Toy Story films, the standup brought his trademark lovable crank style to the child's toy, whose previous personality was entirely determined by how much you angled the detachable eyebrows.

Don Rickles may be gone, but he definitely won't be forgotten.

In fact, the industry vet preserved his own legacy by filming a new TV just before his death. As we previously reported, the celebrated comedian passed away this week in his Los Angeles home from kidney failure. He was 90 years old.

But it appears as though Don will keep fans laughing long after his death as he filmed 10 episodes for his final TV show, titled Dinner With Don.

The series features the Casino actor grabbing dinner with some of Hollywood's brightest stars — including Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, etc. While AARP Studios has yet to lock in a distributor or a premiere date, they seem eager to release the footage as they noted in a statement:

"All of us at AARP Studios are immensely saddened with the passing of Don Rickles. We had the distinct pleasure of recently working with Don on our upcoming series Dinner with Don. Don was known for his biting, acerbic humor and we feel lucky enough to have experienced that first-hand. He was also a thoughtful, kind and generous colleague and friend. Don continued to make audiences laugh throughout his life and career and his legacy will live on. We send our condolences to his family and longtime industry colleagues."

So sad. And, from the looks of the trailer, the show is destined to be a hit. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the trailer for Dinner With Don for yourself (below)!

Don Rickles Dead At 90

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

And the world loses another great entertainer.

We are sad to report that legendary comedian and film star Don Rickles has passed away at 90 years old.

The lovable insult comic's publicist has confirmed Rickles death at his Los Angeles home from kidney failure.

Nicknamed "Mr. Warmth," Rickles made a name for himself taking everyone down a peg (his favorite insult was calling someone a hockey puck). It was Frank Sinatra who turned the funnyman into a superstar, after attending his show and getting insulted right off the bat as Rickles told the Hollywood powerhouse:

"Make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody."

Don went on to act in TV and movies, everything from 1970's war epic Kelly's Heroes to the Toy Story films (he was Mr. Potato Head). He continued to insult audiences right up until the end; he had shows in Las Vegas and beyond booked through 2018.

Offstage, Rickles was known as a kind, generous family man. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Barbara Sklar.
