Why he might be annoying:

    He worked as a real estate agent between acting roles.
    Ironically, considering the character that made him famous, he was a teetotaler.
    He reprised the Otis character for Alan Jackson's 'Don't Rock the Jukebox' video and a commercial for Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was married to Vivian Angstadt for 53 years until her death.
    He was injured in the Northridge earthquake (January 17, 1994), dying of a heart attack two weeks later.
    A biographer called him 'the best sober drunk in Hollywood.'
