Robin Williams marathons, tributes

If you're still searching for a way to remember Robin Williams after his death Monday, you're not alone. Several tributes to the iconic actor and comedian are taking place. Tampa Pitcher Show is offering free screenings of select Robin Williams films this week. Show times are Sunday through Thursday at 8 p.m. (See tampapitchershow.net for details.)

Disney will air Aladdin across several networks over the weekend. The 1992 animated film, which featured Williams as the voice of the beloved Genie, will air today at 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Disney; Sunday at 11 a.m., 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Disney XD; and Monday at 11 a.m. on Disney Junior.

More than 10,000 people have signed at ipetition.com to request a bronze statue of Williams be built next to the Boston park bench where he and Matt Damon filmed one of Good Will Hunting's most iconic scenes. Fans have turned the bench into a memorial, gathering to leave flowers and write some of his most famous quotes in chalk.

After thousands of fans petitioned the developers of the online role-playing video game World of Warcraft to memorialize Williams, the game's lead designer said Thursday that Blizzard Entertainment planned to create a character inspired by the actor, comedian and avid gamer.
