R.I.P. Dick van Patten

Starting out in radio as a child star member of the REG'LAR FELLERS and later the teenage co-star of TV's MAMA,  Dick Van Patten grew into the consummate character actor. Among his roles were the Jack Benny/Eddie Cantor character in the WONDER WOMAN episode featuring the late Christa Helm. Eventually, after siring his own little mini-empire of acting, tennis-playing Van Pattens, he became an outright star as the beloved father on TV's EIGHT IS ENOUGH.
