Dick was a very accomplished actor even though most people probably remember him just for the "Don't squeeze the Charmin," ad campaign. In all, he performed in around 80 movies and television shows including: The Untouchables (he was the sheriff), The Rifleman, The Virginian, Perry Mason, The Twilight Zone, Gomer Pyle, McHale's Navy, Bewitched, Petticoat Junction, The Flying Nun, Get Smart, Hogan's Heroes, Marcus Welby M.D., The Bob Newhart Show, Maude, Fantasy Island, etc.
He and his wife, Jill, were married for 57 years all the way up until his death at the age of 91. They had three children, two daughters, and a son. Bonus trivia: Dick Wilson was a great acrobatic dancer. He had the kind of moves with the flips and stuff that dancers are using today. Who knew that Mr. Whipple could bring it like that?
Soon after Mr. Wilson died in 2007, P&G began an advertising campaign featuring old clips and paying tribute to both Dick Wilson and Mr. Whipple. The tribute indicated that the deceased actor will be "In Our Hearts Forever." The bad news for Mr. Wilson is that there's only one toilet paper in heaven and it's called: "Angel Soft." Sorry, I couldn't help myself. :)
