    Long story short. I was sent off to Betty Ford Clinic in 88, and while i was getting my medical check , a couple linebackers carried in a VERY messed up Clint howard who was in a straight jacket, mumbling and drooling on himself. So I am pretty sure he missed more than the 5 he missed in his youth. But i am very glad to see that he made it thru the issues he had, many addicts didn't.

    The parents deserve an Oscar........raise not one, but two kids in the Hollywood world who grew up to be normal decent people without a string of news stories about drugs, arrests or of hate among the fellow cast members from their career.

    My first memory of Clint was his appearances on the Andy Griffith show eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. No lines. Just a little boy dressed as a cowboy, who would raise up his sandwich as an offering to Andy or Barney. What a cutie-pie.

    I met Clint Howard years ago at comic book store I randomly stopped into, he was promoting a small indie movie he was in with actor William Katt and they invited me to the theater to watch the film with him. I had trouble remembering who Howard was at first, then I blurted out Star Trek!!! He did one episode playing an alien that looked like a child in the 1960s. Howard pointed at me and said "Nerd alert! Nerd Alert!". Both him and Katt (Greatest American Hero actor) were both very pleasant, approchable and kind.

    "The Cormbomite Maneuver" was the first regular (that is, after two pilots) episode of Star Trek filmed, although it wasn't the first aired. So in a way, Clint Howard was Star Trek's first guest star. He's been on a few episodes of the various Star Trek series since then, most recently only a couple of years ago. He also parodied his original role in a roast of William Shatner.
