harry goz, dead at 71

sl_murphy.jpgSo, you may ask, who the heck was Harry Goz? Goz played Tevye in the Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof for many years.

However, you may know him better as the voice of crazed Captain Murphy on SeaLab 2021.

It was quite a thrill to hear the voice of Tevye, who once belted out "If I Were A Rich Man," saying things like:

Pudding can't fill the emptiness inside me! But it'll help.

My nipples are hard just thinking about it.

I will slaughter them like a wolf among lambs! The seas will run red with the blood of my enemies!

Visit the Captain Murphy soundboard for more great quotes.

More on Goz's work.

Hank Goz was a Long Islander, just so you know. Some good things do come out of here. Besides serial killers and teenage nymphs who like Italian auto mechanics.

[I realize this is old news, but I just found out about it today]


Listed below are links to weblogs that reference harry goz, dead at 71:

September has been a month filled with celebrity deaths. George Plimpton is the latest. [Read More]

I was traipsing around my blogroll when I I saw at Michele at ASV that Harry Goz was dead. Captain Murphy is no more. Well crap. The things that happen while I'm out slugging down jynnantonnix. Wake me up when... [Read More]


i'm sorry, sugar. i got a note from the gp group the day he died. i didn't think you liked sealab, or i would've forwarded it.

there was some miscommunication at first that made it sound like it was george who had died, and after that i kinda forgot.

I don't know Harry from Goz but that little thumbnail looks like Race Bannon from Johnny Quest.

I saw the announcement on Adult Swim the Sunday before. They played the "All That Jazz" (essentially a Captain Murphy solo) episode.

(to the cola machine): "That IS exact change, jerk-face!"

"Daddy needs his medicine. I'm sick, baby. I'm sick. Come on, baby. Daddy needs his feel-good juice."

(to the scorpion): "You laid your brood of eggs in my navel. Ha-ha-ha! We're going to be mommies!"


I like the nice Highway Patrolman making lewd remarks at Debbie.

I know some people who are still devastated about it. I hope the show will go on, but it won't be quite the same without him. Too bad it didn't get much notice -- he died the same day as John Ritter and Johnny Cash, I believe, or very close to it.

"It's like a koala bear crapped a rainbow in my brain!" has to be one of the best cartoon lines of all time. :)

Well, that just makes my day like a monkey taking a crap on my salad.

I dont think it was on the soundboard, but...

Somebody better call Bruce Springsteen and tell him to get a new nickname, because apparently, your the Boss!

RIP Harry Goz. You will be missed. Old news that I just found out about myself. Well, you may not have a body now, but you'll have more fun without it.

You must let your sadness be like a monkey in a pinata... Hiding with the candy... Hoping the kids don't break through with the stick!

Well, all I can say, is his death has put me in mourning for yet another month.
RIP Wesley Willis and Harry Goz.
You will be remembered forever.

"I dub thee, Sir Phobos, knight of Mars, beater of ass. Be a hitter babe."

Hey there Seamonkeys!!! Without Murphy there is no hope for Sealab. I feel awful for Squishface. That little guy may stink...but he tastes like candy. RIP Goz. Word has it that they took his brain and put it into an AdrienneBarbouxBot, unfortunatly only 5 feet tall. Why so short? Sniff you jerks later.
