Cast members of 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' remember MTM

MacLeod called Moore a wonderful, loving and caring person, who was rightfully considered America's sweetheart, adding, "Today, "sadness is all around" for all of us and I will miss Mary, deeply". And her figure got the producers of the show in trouble with the sensors at times since Mary Tyler Moore appeared on a number of episodes in short shorts and really tight tights. A type 1 diabetic, Moore had been on a ventilator after being hospitalized with pneumonia when she passed away on Friday.

"The Dick Van Dyke Show" ended in 1966 and, in 1970, Moore landed her own show titled "The Mary Tyler Moore Show".

Both of Moore's characters epitomized the white American upper middle class at the time she was playing them. The prime-time hit featuring her life as a single, working woman was an inspiration to many women then and now.

Oprah will also feature in a special CBS tribute to the actress, entitled Mary Tyler Moore: Love Is All Around, airing on Thursday night (26Jan17).

The Emmy Award-winning star was best known in the United States for her TV roles in "The Dick Van Dyke Show" in the 1960s and her eponymous "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" in the 1970s. At 17 years old, she had been in a series of commercials for Hotpoint appliances. She stood up to male colleagues and their sexist remarks. She has done the role of the Happy Hotpoint. "I had three children who had a great mother figure and so I knew about what people need when they come to you for anything". "I can't imagine what losing a son would be like".

Not only did she prove him wrong, he described her as "the best there ever was". She loved to rehearse. "It was just very natural for her".

Mary Tyler Moore's character inspired many others, from Rachel Green played by Jennifer Aniston on "Friends" to Liz Lemon played by Tina Fey on "30 Rock" and many more.
