Burt Sigurdson is a fictional character on FOX comedy That '70s Show. He is the husband of Beatrice Sigurdson, the father of Kitty Forman and is portrayed by the late Tom Poston.

Character

His grandchildren include Eric Forman, Laurie Forman and Penny. Burt is a somewhat shy, soft and kind old man and usually tries to avoid his wife's yelling and insulting by lying to her, telling her that he is "going for a smoke", though Burt tells Eric that he doesn't smoke. He also is seen pretending to sleep to avoid trouble with his wife.

Series arc

Burt and Bea appear on the show for the first and only time in Season 5. Burt has a heart attack while outside hiding from his wife in the episode Your Time Is Gonna Come, and minutes later is found by Eric in the driveway, lying on the pavement and not moving. He is then rushed to the hospital immediately, where he passed away.
