Bill Mumy Timeline
1959Along with Cloris Leachman, he is one of only two actors to appear in both "The Twilight Zone" (1959) and its second television revival, "The Twilight Zone" (2002).
1964Was the original choice to play "Eddie Munster," in the cult 1960s TV series "The Munsters" (1964). However, his parents did not approve of the makeup young Bill would have to wear for the role; they turned it down. Butch Patrick ended up playing the part. Today, Patrick and Mumy are very good friends and sometimes collaborate on music.
1965Wrote a screenplay back in the late 1970s in which the "Lost in Space" (1965) family would have found their way back to Earth. 20th Century Fox was committed to the project, but series creator Irwin Allen wasn't interested in reviving the series. The plan dissolved completely after the death of space patriarch Guy Williams in 1989.
1965Was a lifelong friend of James Stewart, with whom he co-starred in the film Dear Brigitte (1965). The Stewart and Mumy families knew each other well off-screen, Stewart's wife Gloria having been Mumy's Sunday school teacher. He can still do a perfect imitation of Stewart's voice, one that frequently cracked Stewart up during his lifetime. They were all members of the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church.
1965Credits his "Lost in Space" (1965) co-star Guy Williams with inspiring him to become an actor. Mumy grew up watching Williams on Disney's "Zorro" (1957) TV series; young Bill broke his leg attempting to recreate one of the show's stunts in his bedroom.
1965Best known by the public for his role as Will Robinson on "Lost in Space" (1965).
1965'Weird Al' Yankovic' was a big fan of "Lost in Space" (1965) growing up, and he and Mumy later became good friends. Mumy reportedly introduced Al to his wife Suzanne.
1978Performed with Robert Haimer as "Barnes & Barnes", recording the hit novelty song "Fish Heads" in 1978. It is currently the most requested song in the history of the Dr. Demento Show.
1994Had a recurring role as "Lennier" on "Babylon 5" (1994). Mumy had also repeatedly tried to land a guest role on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993), but the producers always wanted him to play an alien. He held out until they allowed him to play a human, which he did in the DS9 episode "The Siege of AR-558" (he was the Starfleet engineer who worked on trying to decode a Dominion communications array).
1994On the "Babylon 5" (1994) episode "Eyes," he used his album title "Zabagabee" as an alien word.
2002Acted in a recent episode of the newly-revived "The Twilight Zone" (2002) TV series with his actress-daughter Liliana Mumy. As a child, Mumy appeared in three of Rod Serling's classic "The Twilight Zone" (1959) episodes ("Long-Distance Call", "It's a Good Life" and "In Praise Of Pip") during the 1960s.
