I missed #4: I never watched "Family Affair" so I didn't know about "Mr. French"

Ever watch The Twilight Zone? Same actor who played Mr. French was also Pip from "A Nice Place to Visit." And he was the voice of Bagheera in the animated Jungle Book, 1967.

He was also in The Time Machine (1960) with Rod Taylor, Yvette Mimieux and Alan Young (Who was the voice of Uncle Scrooge McDuck for Disney).
