He's still alive, aged 78, according to imdb.com. I thought he'd be older than that as well.

So he won't be Poppins his clogs any time soon.
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

I don't think so, he always looked in great health on TV generally, even in his twilight years. No Jolly Holiday with Maury just yet.

Dick Van Dyke is NOT dead. He did a special show "The Dick Van Dyke Show Revisited" only a few months earlier this year...

I believe he is going to live on until he is in his 90's!

He is my idol!!!

Does everybody know he played Mr.Dawes Sr in Mary Poppins? :D

Yeah! the end credits in the movie gave it away :D
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Na way off.

Dick van Dyke has atleast 4 or 5 more years left within him.
As far as i'm aware there are no serious health problums
known and he seems pretty stable at most of the award
shows that are on once or twice a year. But if he does get
any serious health problums then there might be some
kind of consideration. :)

Anyway how has Mary been. I know for sure she
has had diabetes for some time now. Although with
a couple face lifts "Probobly" she don't look to bad.

I say that both have a couple years yet.. ;)

An aspiring young actor seeks the help of an agent for the first time.
"What's your name again son?" the agent asked.
"Richard Light-Truck Lesbian sir" replied the actor.
"Not snappy enough!" said the agent, "try Dick Van Dyke."

The funniest and only Dick Van Dyke joke I am aware of. :)

Speaking of Mr Van Dyke.... Did you know that Lionel Jeffries who played his father in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was actually a month or so younger than him... oh yes I think he is still very much alive too........ :old:

And the most anoying thing about Diagnosis Murder is if you are called Van Dyke then you get a part in the new series....... think the dog Rover Van Dyke played a part once too!!!??? :)
