Don Knotts called him the "Greatest physical comedian on the planet".

Ritter's final films—Bad Santa, Clifford's Really Big Movie and Stanley's Dinosaur Round-Up—were all dedicated in his memory.

John Ritter was born in Burbank, California, the son of Dorothy Fay (née Southworth), an actress, and singing cowboy/matinee-star Tex Ritter.
