Dick Wilson, aka Mr. Whipple

Dick Wilson, aka Mr. Whipple died at the Motion Picture & Television Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. He was 91. Mr. Wilson's career spanned eight decades and included parts on radio, TV, film and theater, but he was best known for playing a grocer obsessed with keeping housewives from squeezing the Charmin from 1964 to 1981.

We all know Mr. Whipple's famous quote. So lets quote Mr. Wilson from the San Francisco Examiner in 1985, "Everybody says, 'Where did they find you?' I say I was never lost. I've been an actor for 55 years".

Good Night Mr. Wilson

In Solidarity
