I didn't know he was still with us. As Sexze mentioned, he was a huge part of our age group's childhood.

Thanks Playguy40 for taking the time to read my blog posting, and thanks for taking the time to post your nice comment , i appreciate both.Prior to reading this article, i did not know if Allan Melvin was still alive or if he had passed on.I agree with both of you , he and that television show were a huge part of those of us who grew up in that time period.Reruns of the show were being run on TV , but i have not seen any in a while, hopefully those who have viewed the reruns enjoyed them also.Thanks again and peace.Best wishes in life and for a wonderful 2008 and beyond.

It didn't ring a bell with me as I never watched that show. But when I investigated further, I knew who he was because he also played Archie Bunker's neighbor/pal, Barney Heffner and was the voice for Magilla Gorilla.

Thank you Wordsofwit, for taking the time to read my blog and for posting your nice comment.I appreciate both.I remember him best from The Brady bunch , and also from Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. he had a recurriing role on that show also.I read in the article that he did play Archie Bunkers neighbor, on that show, and also that he did voice several cartoon characters, among them Magilla Gorilla , whom i remeber very well, i watched that cartoon very often as a child.Thanks for posting some of the other characters that he played and or voiced.Have a wonderful 2008 and beyond.Peace.
