Washington post WWW site, viewed Feb. 10, 2020 (in obituary dated Feb. 9, 2020: Orson Bean, a veteran actor and crackup artist who became a witty staple of game shows in the 1960s, then tuned in and dropped out amid the countercultural upheaval, later reemerging in droll supporting parts on stage and screen, died Feb. 7 after a car accident in the Venice section of Los Angeles. He was 91. A police spokesperson said Mr. Bean was pronounced dead at the scene. He was born Dallas Frederick Burrows in Burlington, Vt., on July 22, 1928. A piano player later suggested his stage name, which seemed to amuse audiences more than his initial choice of Roger Duck. (He later adopted Orson Bean as his legal name.))
