I had a great time doing Lost in Space
(1965). With the exception of a couple of days, I don't have any unpleasant memories of the show. The only thing I'm bitter about in a sense is that the show runs constantly in syndication and none of the actors get paid. Nonetheless, I made a lot of money at the time, my family invested it well for me, and I have a lot of nice things. I can't complain.
Was 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.
