TV pioneer Norman Lear celebrated his 90th birthday at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC on Thursday night, and now we can all celebrate his legacy with a viral video.

Set to the "Good Times" theme song, the "90 Years in 90 Seconds" tribute from the Norman Lear Center at USC Annenberg includes brief introductory narration from Charlie Rose and proceeds as a fast-paced, feel-good slideshow of Lear's life and trailblazing TV times.

Lear wrote and produced some of the most popular sitcoms of the 1970s, including "All In Family," "Sanford And Son," "The Jeffersons," "Good Times" and more.
