Comedy writer David Lloyd passed away this week of cancer. He won an Emmy award in 1976 for writing the episode Chuckles Bites the Dust for the Mary Tyler Moore Show. David Lloyd would later write for other comedy series including Cheers and Frazier.
I found the episode Chuckles Bites the Dust out on YouTube (in 3 parts). It originally aired October 25, 1975. Industry peers often cite this as one of the funniest episodes in TV sitcom history.
David Lloyd's humor will be missed.
