June 12, 1990| From Times Wire Services

Bob Cummings, who had his own TV comedy in the 1950s and '60s, felt half his age when more than 100 friends surprised him with an 80th birthday bash.

"It's my 40th birthday," Cummings joked during a Friday night bash in suburban Sherman Oaks for the star of "The Bob Cummings Show," "My Living Doll" and "My Hero."

Cummings' birthday was Saturday.

Among the celebrities on hand were Jane Withers, Pat Buttram, Jane Wyatt, Rose Marie, Buddy Rogers, Dick Van Patten and Margaret O'Brien.

Art Linkletter, a longtime buddy, said, "We have laughed our way around the world together a couple of times."
