2He appeared on the show Jack Paar Tonite (1973) with Charlton Heston, who said that he hoped one day he would able to say he was on the first show on which Freddie Prinze performed.
3He was posthumously awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6755 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on December 14, 2004.
4His last public performance was less than a week before his untimely death, at the Jimmy Carter Inaugural Gala in Washington, D.C.
5Explained how he got his professional last name by saying, "Bob Hope is the King of Comedy. Everyone knows that. I'd just be content with being the prince." He later altered prince to Prinze.
6Was pulled over by police on a highway on November 16, 1976, for DUI (Driving Under the Influence). At the time, he was under the influence of methaqualone, a prescription drug that was prescribed by his psychiatrist.
7Dropped out of the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts to pursue his comedy career.
8During his lifetime he described his ethnic heritage as 'Hunga-rican' (Hungarian and Puerto Rican). While his mother was of Puerto Rican ancestry, his father Edward Karl Pruetzel was German, not Hungarian, born in Berlin, Germany, in 1914, to Friedrich Karl Prutzel and Eleonare Maria Schultes. Edward moved to the United States in 1934. Prinze's son, Freddie Prinze Jr., has stated that his father was of half German and half Puerto Rican ancestry.
