But if it wasn't as historically important as the other four, Night Court was still a delight for many reasons, not least of which was the warm and silly presence of its star, Harry Anderson, who died yesterday, too young at 65.

"This morning at 6:41 a.m. the Asheville Police Department responded to the home of actor Harry Anderson where he was found deceased", the Asheville Police Department told the Hollywood Reporter. "No foul play is suspected", the Asheville Police Department said in a statement.

Anderson was a three-time Emmy nominee for his role as Judge Harry Stone in 'Night Court'. The Newport, Rhode Island-born actor also made multiple appearances on "Saturday Night Live".

"The Shakespeare Festival at Ashland, Oregon, seemed like a good place to open a magic store", he said. On "Night Court", Anderson played a goofy but big-hearted judge who encountered a host of oddball characters and cases every week. "I was never really an actor", he once said. He'd joined the Dante Magic Club in his teens and reportedly made money as a street magician in San Francisco when he was 17. They named the character Harry so I'd do not forget to react when someone said my name. "I can settle back and do what I want to do". He sold his home in Pasadena, California, and moved back to New Orleans, where he had lived in the 1970s. "I hope he is in some magical afterlife doing card tricks with Mel Tormé".

Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, he moved to Asheville.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Morgan, and he had two children from a previous marriage, according to IMDB. There was no immediate word on funeral arrangements Monday night.
