Jean Stapleton and a “Simple Melody”

The comedy icon and treasure died today at the wondrous age of 90.

There’s was more to her than what folks saw every week on “All in the Family.” Below, a delightful example from “The Muppet Show” that proves she really had a lovely singing voice (despite what we heard on “Those Were the Days”) and a real flair for musical comedy.

God bless you, Jean Stapleton, and thank you.
