Rest in Peace! And thanks!

What was funny was the "Autopilot" smoking and having that stupid grin on his face afterward...........

Bye Mr. Graves! You helped us "Discover - the World of Science!" and gave lotsa laughs along the way!

What was brilliant about that movie is that it had no comic actors (well, except for Johnny in the control tower.) It had the straightest straight men you could conceive of - Robert Stack, Leslie Nielsen, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves - and they played the lines straight. It was that contrast with the utter absurdity of the lines that made it twice as funny.

I remember him more for the schlocky scifi movies that I stared at enraptured when I was a kid... eating red hots. Who can forget Peter Graves saving a 2 dimensional Chicago from giant grasshoppers?

In more recent years he amused me once again when he became in the forefront of an attempt to pass a law in Los Angeles that would ban leaf blowers. The joke was, "Let them use rakes."

He seemed a decent chap for an actor. Thanks for the laughs Peter, even though many were unintentional.
