    She tried to shave 15 years off her age, claiming a birth year of 1929.
    She was fired from 'The Tonight Show' for upstaging Paar, who complained he felt 'like the announcer on the Dody Goodman Show.'
    Her voice was described as 'like a Tweetie Pie cartoon bird strangling on peanut butter.'
    She said, 'I don't like dumb jokes, but I will do dumb things for a laugh.'
    In addition to appearing in 'Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman,' she announced the title at the beginning of each episode.
    'Nunsense' creator Dan Goggin said that she could still lift her leg over her head at age 85.
