Bonnie Franklin reported dead
In One Day at a Time, Bonnie Franklin was a different kind of TV mom. She was fiercely independent, loving, and like her daughters, undeniably imperfect.
Over the years, she did have some geek-friendly credits.
It’s not just that she appeared in 1954 as Susan Cratchit in a TV version of A Christmas Carol, was on Touched by an Angel, or had a guest spot on The Man from U.N.C.L.E..
She was in an episode of the original series of The Munsters, Herman’s Sorority Caper. Clearly, that experience stuck with her, because more than thirty years later, she directed twelve episodes of The Munsters Today, the John Schuck/Lee Meriwether revival.
Good-bye, Bonnie Franklin…the world is a little less strong without you.
