    Unhappy Tony Hart Dies

    Artist and children's presenter Tony Hart has died, aged 83.
    Hart, who lived in Surrey, had suffered from health problems for a number of years, including two strokes. His family said he died peacefully.
    Mr Hart appeared on art programmes for nearly 50 years before retiring in 2001 because of health problems.
    He first appeared on Saturday Special as an illustrator before fronting his own shows such as Vision On, Take Hart and Hartbeat. His agent, Roc Renals, said he died in the early hours of Sunday morning.

    To all the gallery pics, to the enthusiasm, the smile and the energy that man gave, to those he inspired and the way they passed it on and still do.

    A life well lived and well remembered... Thanks Tony.

    So Tony has Morphed. My lifelong ambition was to get a picture into his gallery. Thoughts and prayers go to his family, he will be sadly missed.

    Very sad day for the Art and Childrens TV World, I remember watching him when I was a little one and they were always good shows, he will be missed.

    Unhappy

    The strangest thing about this for me is that I was only looking him up on Wikipedia and Youtube the week before last - after something we were doing with our Art Department, I suddenly started thinking about him, about how he seemed to be still going strong, etc...

    Just this morning, just as I was waking up I heard my parents mention something about someone previously having strokes (at this time, I had no idea who had died) and suddenly Tony Hart pops up into my mind - not sure why since I can't hear much when i'm asleep. I suddenly start thinking about how he had 2 strokes and how I wished that someone could come up with a way of restoring use of his hands so he could draw and appear on telly again (funny the type of things you think about when you're half asleep)

    Then I come on here and find out that he's passed away, then realise how strange the mind works sometimes. Like most of you, I also used to watch him alot when I was younger.

    Tony, you will be very missed.

    He went to the same art college my dad did. My dad always had a lot of respect for him, as he used to teach real art, not how to make a 500ft image of a whale out of salt and macaroni.

    Proof that you don't need to shout at the top of your voice, or dance about like a tit to be a good kids tv presenter.
