Sad news, but what a run he had. He was creative and productive well into his 90s.

RIP to one of the greatest comedic guys ever. He was something special.
Check out the episode from Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee if you haven't seen it already (Carl and Mel Brooks with Jerry Seinfeld).

I think his best work was as Carl Rhinoceros in Toy Story 4.

RIP to an absolute titan of comedy and good man. Sad to say but now I'm terribly worried about Mel Brooks. We should all be so lucky to have a friendship like theirs.

We just lost one of the great ones. A blessing he lived so long.

Great story (thread):

Dan Barreiro had a good Ode to a Dead Guy segmant yesterday about Carl. Some interesting tidbits on the Dick Van Dyke show.

Yeah, they were great together in Toy Story 4 as Carl Rhinoceros and Melephant Brooks.

Just saw this today. Reiner had hosted the Directors Guild Awards for many years. In 2009 he had to take a year off due to illness and Jon Cryer filled in. This is the letter he sent Cryer.
