Pat "Mr. Miyagi" Morita Passes Away

The Dork Knight

Recommended Posts

LAS VEGAS Actor Pat Morita, who was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of the wise and dry-witted Mister Miyagi in "The Karate Kid," has died. He was 73.

His wife, Evelyn, says Morita died yesterday of natural causes at his home in Las Vegas. She said in a statement that her husband, who first rose to fame with a role on "Happy Days," had "dedicated his entire life to acting and comedy."

Morita appeared in dozens of movies and T-V shows but it was his role in the 1984 hit, "Karate Kid," that would define his career and spawn countless affectionate imitations.

You know, he lived a full life. I'm glad he got that. Farewell, Morita-san, and thank you for the memories.

Also, the last thing I saw/heard him in was Robot Chicken earlier this year with the awesome "Enter the Fat One" sketch.

Daniel: Hey, what kind of belt do you have?

Miyagi: Canvas. JC Penny. Three ninety-eight. You like?


Daniel: No, I meant...

Miyagi: Daniel-san... karate here.

[he taps his head]

Miyagi: Karate here.

[he taps his heart]

Miyagi: Karate never here

[points to his belt]

Miyagi: Understand?

RIP Morita

Pat Morita: You can't enter that tournament without the proper skills, Fat One.

Joey Fatone: ...And will you train me, Mr. Miyagi?

Pat Morita: First of all, I'm Pat-effin'-Morita, ya nutsack. Second of all, you're too old for the training.

Daniel-san: [enters with a plunger] So was I... if you remember.

Pat Morita: Daniel-san! I thought I smelled failure. That toilet's not going to uplug itself!

Classic stuff from him

RIP Pat-effin'-Morita
