    I liked his cameo in Home Alone. Can't believe it's been almost 2 decades since his death.

    One of my all time favorite Candy scenes. They don comedic performers like this any longer.

    Hey guys, I was thinking about a scene from what is possibly a John Candy comedy - this was described to me long ago, but I can't remember if I ever saw the film:

    - A guy (possibly Candy) goes to the airport and has to go through the metal detector. It keeps beeping, and he eventually takes everything off that could possibly have metal in it, while drawing a crowd of onlookers. Then, he suddenly says something like, "I forgot! I have a metal plate in my head!" and the onlookers go, "Awwwww." (or something like that).

    This is not a recent film, and would have been from the '90's or '80's (or possibly the '70's). Which movie is this from?? I'd like to see this at some point. Note that I'm not 100% sure I have all of the details correct, since I don't think I ever saw the film.

    Thanks in advance for any info. on this.

    Blur: I believe that scene was from "Who's Harry Crumb?".

    Anybody else remember a cartoon series he did called Camp Candy?

    Yep, I remember that show, too. One of the weirder ideas for a "Let's make a cartoon show for kids based on a celebrity", aside from that one where Gary Coleman was an angel who helped kids with their problems.

    EDIT: Also, I think it was either on this show, or the Ed Grimley cartoon, that Joe Flaherty reprized his Count Floyd character from SCTV in some live-action segments. I'm pretty sure it was the Ed Grimley one, but for some reason I'm thinking Camp Candy as well.

    I.... Actually vaguely remember the Gary Coleman one. The fact that I even remotely remember that one scares me more than I care to admit.

    I watched Uncle Buck and Home Alone a little while back. Man, I loved him.
