VIDEO: Schneider from One Day at a Time

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #100: Our Only Friend, The End there is some wonderful talk about Pat Harrington Jr. and his portrayal of Schneider on "One Day at a Time".

If you haven't seen One Day at a Time, Schneider was the "Kramer" of the show.
He was a wacky handyman who had all the best lines on the show.
Here is a great clip of Schneider talking about his childhood:

Here is a lousy 45 second clip where Norman Lear is asked about casting Pat Harrington Jr. He doesn't remember how it happened.

Yeah, that was pointless.
This next clip is fun, it's Pat (looking nothing like his Schneider persona) appearing on the classic game show Match Game:

Finally, for those of you that have never seen the show, here is a "minisode":

I suppose minisodes are for people who find watching a 30 minute sitcom arduous. This episode is great because Mark Hamill plays Schneider's nephew!
Hope you liked the clips. Now go and re-listen to KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #100: Our Only Friend, The End!
