Star Sign Scorpio
Made his first appearance on I've Got A Secret (1952) with his mother, Alice Bahman, who was a radio personality in her own right on WIZE in Springfield, Missouri. The episode aired on September 28, 1960.
Finished recording his dialogue for The Smurfs 2 (2013) only nine days before his death.
As of November 2002, he was doing impromptu, free comedy routines the first Sunday of each month during the Ventura County Antique Fair Grounds and in November/December 2002 in San Francisco on the set of Swing (2003), directed by Martin Guigui where he plays the character of Uncle Bill.
He was said to have worshiped the work of Stan Laurel, and was very close, in his final years, with an admirer of his own, Richard Lewis.
Spent eight months in hospital in 1959 and 1961 undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder and nervous breakdowns.
Winters' career started as a result of a lost wristwatch, about six or seven months after his marriage to Eileen in 1948. The newlyweds couldn't afford to buy another one. Then Eileen read about a talent contest in which the first prize was a wristwatch, and encouraged Jonathan to "go down and win it". She was certain he could, and he did.
Dropped out of high school to join the Marines.
Suffered from bipolar disorder.
His popular drag character Maude Frickert was inspired both by one of his aunts as well as by character actress Maudie Prickett, who also was billed occasionally as Maude Prickett.
Has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6290 Hollywood Blvd.
In a 1985 television special, named King Kong (1933) as the film that made the biggest impression on him in his youth.
In 2000 he won the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, presented annually by the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
He was of German and British Isles/English ancestry.
According to the book "Tomorrow I Die", Winters appeared in the short film "Screen Test of Mike Hammer" as a wino. This film also featured Jack Stang and Bettye Ackerman. Stills are found in the aforementioned book.
He made his semi-annual visit to the "Hollywood Collectors & Celebrities Show" for an autograph session and to meet his fans.
[re comedy icon Stan Laurel] Damn it! I'm the only one out here who never managed to meet him. And there he was, sitting right out there in Santa Monica all those years. The Oceana Apartments, wasn't it? I'll never get over that.
I've done for the most part pretty much what I intended. I ended up doing comedy, writing and painting. I've had a ball. And as I get older, I just become an older kid.
Of course there are those who can paint much more quickly than I. They take cobalt blue, throw it against a 15-by-20 canvas and say, "Ah, look, this is 3 o'clock overlooking Central Park". Then, when someone says, "I don't get it", the artist replies, "You don't get it? It's the happening, it's the feeling. And it costs $200,000". It's a slap in the teeth to talented, struggling people who studied art when some little dummy comes along with two brushes, drinks a lot of turpentine, smokes four joints and says, "Hey, man, is this not out of sight?".
[on painting] This year  I got the idea when I was sitting in a hamburger joint and a hearse pulled up. A few minutes later a U-Haul parked behind the hearse. I want to do a picture of a horse pulling a U-hearse entitled 'You Can't Take It With You'.
As a kid, I always wanted to be lots of things. I was a Walter Mitty type. I wanted to be in the French Foreign Legion, a detective, a doctor, a test pilot with a scarf, a fisherman who hauled in a tremendous marlin after a 12-hour fight.
[when someone asked him how to get into show business] You know how movie studios have a front gate? You get a Camaro with a steel grill, drive it through the gate, and once you're on the lot, you're in showbiz.
I don't do jokes. The characters are my jokes.
If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it.
