#SadBulletin: From his son Lindsey Gardner - Gerald Clifford Gardner, legendary screenwriter who, with his late partner Dee Caruso, penned the largest number of episodes of The Monkees television series (21!), died peacefully yesterday evening at the Motion Picture and Television Home in Woodland Hills, several weeks after the appearance of an aggressive cancer that spread to his lungs. He was 91.


Gerald Gardner (scriptwriter)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gerald Clifford Gardner (born July 22, 1929) is an American author, scriptwriter, screenwriter, comics writer, story editor and producer who was active in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Gardner frequently teamed with his longtime writing partner, Dee Caruso, for their work.

He wrote 22 episodes of The Monkees and 11 of Get Smart, including "The Amazing Harry Hoo", "Washington 4, Indians 3", and "Diplomat's Daughter" (featuring The Craw). Get Smart episodes he worked on were nominated for Primetime Emmy Awards.

Gardner was a senior writer on the live broadcasts of That Was The Week That Was (TW3), the pioneering NBC-TV series of topical satire.

His producing credits include The Red Skelton Show (19701971). Gardner and Caruso co-wrote the Walt Disney motion picture The World's Greatest Athlete starring Jan-Michael Vincent and John Amos. He is also the author of more than 30 books, including the popular political satire series "Who's In Charge Here?"

In 1963 he also wrote gags for the daily comic strip Miss Caroline: The Little Girl in the Big White House by Frank B. Johnson, about the supposed daughter of the U.S. President. When President Kennedy was murdered later that year the comic strip was instantly cancelled.

Gardner is the father of media executive Lindsay Gardner.
