Actor Bill Mulliken has passed away at the age of 83. The Los Angeles Times noted that he performed as Cornelius Hackle in over 2,000 performances of "Hello, Dolly" on Broadway with Dolly Levis ranging from Ginger Rogers to Phyllis Diller.

He made his mark in Toobworld as well, although he doesn't have that many credits to his name. Still, most of the shows he appeared in are considered classics today; and with the following enjoyed by 'The Andy Griffith Show', he'll always be remembered as Franklin Pomeroy, one of Miss Ellie's suitors in "Irresistible Andy".

"Father Murphy" .... Clerk
- Happiness Is... (1982)

"Little House on the Prairie" .... Hotel Clerk
