Very sorry to hear this, @Sunshine45.  What a delight the character of "Georgette" was on Mary Tyler Moore!  Gentle, naive, charmingly whimsical, but strong when she needed to be.  She could even get "Ted" in line when necessary....

 

Yet another actor/actress on the show who took a role and made it utterly memorable!  RIP  Georgia Engel.

Sad news. To be married to Ted Baxter had to be difficult.

I think it was 2 weeks ago that FE TV showed an episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Georgia Engel did quite a nice dance routine to the song "Steam Heat".

 

I was surprised that they chose Georgia Engel to do the routine. Since Mary Tyler Moore was also quite a dancer. But I was wondering if they wanted to show another side of Georgia Engel.

 

Sad to watch the old TV comedies and realize many of the characters are no longer with us.

But that is exactly WHY that scene worked so well..She was playing against her character, doing something, so racy, something  no one expected,  and doing it so WELL, that everyone, (especially Ted) ws totally flabbergasted!
