Remembering Pat Harrington Jr. of One Day at a Time, Antenna TV to Air Tribute Marathon; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of January 11, 2016)

Pat Harrington Jr.

Actor Pat Harrington Jr., who was best known for his role as building superintendent Dwayne Schneider in One Day at a Time, has died. He died on January 6 in Los Angeles, California. He had Alzheimer's disease and fell in early November 2015. He suffered a small brain hemorrhage and spent three weeks in a hospital and nursing home. Mr. Harrington was 86.

Harrington played the recurring role of Pat Hannigan, a young nightclub performer who eventually married Terry Williams (Penney Parker), in The Danny Thomas Show from 1959-1960. He starred as Tony Lawrence in the 1969-1970 ABC sitcom Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. Some of his other early sitcom guest appearances included Grindl, The Bing Crosby Show, The Lucy Show, The Munsters, Hank, McHale's Navy, F Troop, The Beverly Hillbillies, Good Morning, World, The Flying Nun, Nanny and the Professor, The Courtship of Eddie's Father and The Partridge Family.

One Day at A Time

He starred as the affable building superintendent Dwayne Schneider in One Day at a Time. The popular CBS sitcom ran for 9 seasons from 1975-1984. It starred Bonnie Franklin, Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli. Schneider was known for his white T-shirt, blue vest, cigarette pack rolled up in his sleeve and tool belt that he rarely seemed to use to fix anything. Harrington won a Golden Globe Award for "Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series" in 1980 and an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series" in 1984. The cast reunited for the One Day at a Time Reunion retrospective special on CBS in 2005. They reunited once again on NBC's Today on February 26, 2008. In 2012, the cast accepted the Innovation Award at the TV Land Awards.

Harrington was also known for his voice actor work. He provided the voice of The Inspector and Deux-Deux in The Inspector, which was a series of animated shorts from 1965-1969. Some of his other voice credits included The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, The New Scooby-Doo Movies, Wait Till Your Father Gets Home, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels and A Garfield Christmas Special.

Some of his later sitcom guest appearances included Who's the Boss?, Duet, Sydney (which starred Valerie Bertinelli), The Golden Girls, The George Carlin Show, Empty Nest, Kirk, The Wayans Bros., Curb Your Enthusiasm and The King of Queens. His final credit was a 2012 episode of TV Land's Hot in Cleveland, which reunited him with Bertinelli once again. He played Mr. Sherden, the innocent-minded manager of an apartment building.

Survivors include his second wife, Sally Cleaver; two sons, Patrick and Michael, and two daughters, Terry and Tresa, all from his first marriage to Marjorie Ann Gortner; and four grandchildren.

Schneider was a very funny and memorable character. Mr. Harrington played him to perfection. We thank him for the many laughs and entertainment he brought us over his long career. He will be deeply missed.
