I'm 53, I wanted him so bad! It really hurt to lust after someone on tv... Might as well just mention Ed Asner's giant basket on MTM show...also at 12 aspired to have apt. just like Mary's!
Wojo was the hotness.
I so wanted to bury my little pre-teen nose up into that ass.
I liked daddy Barney's stache too.
I knew I was gay because I loved the show's jazzy theme.
And Taxi was on right after... could then get a boner over Kinicky and Alysa Milano's Dad..
His wife died of cancer and now he hawks "natural" cancer remedies and does documentaries on them.
He's totally into black chicks.
It's funny that he affected us all in the same way. I was in love with him when I was 10 and wanted throw my arms around his muscled body and love him long time.
He's what bears used to suppose to look like. Now any fat middle age man with some facial hair is a "bear".
He has a classic retard look. Not attractive. AT. ALL.
I actually thought Hal Linden was fucking hot too! And the black guy, we knew he was gay right?
Hal Linden was very handsome at that time.
Ron Glass pings like crazy and had a huge bulge.
My boyfriend thought he was hot, I didn't really get it at the time. Now I can see what he was talking about.
I liked his goofy demeanor. Made him sexier.
The Ron Glass character was gay but it just wasn't talked about, right?
Ron Glass is rumored to be gay himself, and supposedly dated Anthony Geary of General Hospital fame for years.
Wojo was definitely hot.
A classic bear would be Mel (Mel's Diner) from Alice.
Linda Lavin should know- she was on both shows.
I did have a thing for Wojo but Tony Danza'a ass in Taxi was the star of the show.
I love the collective lust that was apparently spread across the land among a certain age group of gay boys and teens for characters from Wojo to Barney to Mel to Lou Grant. My lust started earlier with Robert Conrad in Wild Wild West but broadened as I got older and honed my attractions to specific looks rather than obvious hotness.
Susan Sontag's sainted beaver
Let's not forget James Evans and those tan corduroys, R31.
Nah, I was hot for Dietrich -- he was unconventionally handsome and I loved his smart, sardonic humor.
Am I the only one who didn't find him attractive or sexy in the least? Even as a kid, I thought he was fat and balding.
He wasn't fat. He was beefy but not fat.
He is the poster boy for "fit fat."
I thought he was so sexy. I've always been attracted to men like that. Beefy boy next door types.
Francis likes the chest hair
Oh jeez...John Amos and his tan cords!! Yes that is an awesome recovered mem.
In a celebrity-sex-encounter thread from a few years ago, somebody posted about getting his dick sucked by Hal Linden and said he had incredible oral skills.

I thought that was Abe Vigoda. Abe gummed them to ecstacy.
Speaking of Abe, I'm always stunned to hear he's still alive and my first response is always "Wait, you mean he isn't dead?"
me! me! i did!
oof, talk about sex on a tight-pantsed stick.
Check out that torso under his shirt starting at the :40 mark.
