This post is more for the SOUTHERN Californian's:

Update August 8, 2013; Cal Worthing has died at the age of 92

Originally posted in 2009

Did Cal Worthington die, and someone forgot to tell him? Seriously? I had not seen any of his Worthington Dodge (or whatever) commercials for a while and I thought he died a long time ago, but tonight I've seen a few (they keep playing it over and over) and it looks like they're propping him up in front of the camera and moving his mouth with strings! Poor old Cal looks like he needs to be in a nursing home..Not selling used cars..

any of the southern california "old timers" probably remember back in the '70's when Cal Worthington would "beat any deal, or I'll eat a bug" ...

Did Cal Worthington die?

Well, almost like clockwork, almost a year since my last post about Cal Worthington, and I just saw another of his commercials .. I am pretty sure now that he actually died years ago, and they are just using a wax-figure with a computer-animated mouth..
...sad ....

Re: Cal Worthington Dead ?

OMG.. I just saw another Cal Worthington TV commercial (they are getting more and more rare) and I swear he still looks and sounds like he died 6 months ago.
I used to love watching his commercials with his dog Spot when I was a kid.. Like 40 years ago.. But now.. It's just sad.. And no more dog Spot!

We have Cal Worthington up North as well. Or at least we did. I haven't seen any of those commercials in awhile.
