Night Court's Masha Warfield shared an old cast photo on Instagram. "I'm going to miss you, Harry". "Rest in peace, Harry".

Anderson and his wife, Elizabeth, looked at three houses in Montford on the same street and bought the third house the same day, The New York Times reported. They named the character Harry so I'd keep in mind to react when someone said my name. "I was asked because I was a big fan". I was just there last night and talked about how wonderful his magic was. He was just wonderful. Harris called him "one of my comedy and magic inspirations growing up".

Here is how Anderson's fans remembered his career.
