After adding a number of the, "Blondie" (1957) series to his resume he turned his focus towards working as a television actor appearing in such series as, "Richard Diamond, Private Detective", "Perry Mason", "Make Room for Daddy", "The Munsters", "Fibber McGee and Molly", "Twilight Zone", "Naked City", "The Dinah Shore Chevy Show", "Outlaws", "77 Sunset Strip", "Bonanza", "Mr. and Mrs. North, "Daniel Boone", "Vacation Playhouse", "U.
