    He portrayed senior citizens while in his early 40s.
    He starred in the unsuccessful spin-offs 'Grady' (canceled after 12 episodes) and 'The Sanford Arms' (canceled after 8).
    Declaring himself 'burned out,' he left Hollywood for Georgia (1994).
    When Late Night with Conan O'Brien wanted to use him in a sketch but could not locate him, they launched a three-week long 'Where's Grady?' search.
    He was supposed to appear in only one episode of 'Sanford' but was so popular he became a regular.
    The highest rated episode of 'Sanford and Son' (December 27, 1974) starred him, not Redd Foxx, who had walked out during a salary dispute.
    He was a frequent guest on 'Sesame Street.'
    He taught drama at Clark Atlanta University.
    'Where's Grady?' drew 50,000 responses.
