R. I. P. Patrick McGoohan (1928-2009)

Here's a link to a story on the passing of actor Patrick McGoohan, known most notably for the short-run program, The Prisoner.

I used the "Number Six" joke a long time back (last April), and I've continued to use No. 2 as a recurring character -- even though, in the show, most of the Number 2s didn't get a chance to recur.

I almost wish I'd used Six in this cartoon. Ironically, today's episode (below) shows them closing up shop.

Trivia: Number Six was born March 19, 1928. McGoohan used his own birthday for the character as a way to show it was his character and not a continuation of "Secret Agent".
