* CoolOldGuy: Dick is now in his 90's but he's still got it. At an age when most people can barely move he can still pull off a few moves. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIiI05uNgnI Here's the proof.]] Note that when he first appears, the crowd gives him a ''standing ovation''.
* GameShowHost: He was the host of two obscure ShortRunners, ''Laugh Line'' and ''Mother's Day''.

* CoolOldGuy: As one user noted on Website/{{Twitter}}, "Looks like nobody told Dick is now in his 90's but van Dyke's body that he's still got it. in his 90's." At an age when most people can barely move he can still pull off more than a few moves. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIiI05uNgnI Here's the proof.]] Note that when he first appears, the crowd gives him a ''standing ovation''.
* GameShowHost: He was the host of two obscure ShortRunners, ''Laugh Line'' and ''Mother's Day''. He also famously turned down the hosting gig on the original ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'', saying [[ItWillNeverCatchOn he didn't see any entertainment value in people guessing prices for a half-hour]] (to be fair, that's pretty much all the original ''Price'' was, yet it still managed to last almost a full decade).

Born December 13, 1925, in West Plains, Missouri, he grew up in Danville, Illinois. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps during WorldWarII and was made a radio announcer; he continued working in radio after the war, as well as in nightclubs and on television. He made his Broadway debut in 1959, soon landing the role of Albert Peterson in ''Theatre/ByeByeBirdie'', for which he won a Tony. This role, in turn, landed him in Hollywood when a film adaptation of the play was made. The remainder of his career has been in movies and television.
