Ventriloquist Jimmy Nelson

I just now learned of the death today of JIMMY NELSON from a Facebook post by his son, Larry. When I was a kid, the two best ventriloquists on TV were the amazing Paul Winchell and the incredible JIMMY NELSON. Nelson was a particular favorite of mine, because I thought his dummy companion, DANNY O'DAY, was hilarious, and I especially liked his puppet-dog, FARFEL. They made many TV appearances, and were famous for being in commercials for Nestle's Chocolate. I still have my own toy DANNY O'DAY ventriloquist dummy which I got for Christmas a million years ago. RIP JIMMY NELSON, and thanks for all the great entertainment.
