Art Linkletter - Rotten Tomatoes

Art Linkletter

Was abandoned as an infant and subsequently adopted by a preacher and his wife, John and Mary Linkletter. Is in the San Diego State University Hall of Fame as a basketball player. Also tried out for the 1936 Olympics as a swimmer. His hugely popular show Kids Say the Darndest Things actually started out as a segment on an earlier show called House Party. The popularity of Kids Say the Darndest Things led to a series of books of the same name which were illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, one of the rare non-Peanuts projects he worked on. Has never had an agent or a business manager. At one point, had shows on all three existing television networks at the same time. Was a close friend of Walt Disney and was asked by Disney to host the opening of his theme park, Disneyland. Was named Ambassador to Australia by President Ronald Reagan. Received a Daytime Emmy for lifetime achievement in 2003.
