Bill Mumy's Quotes

  • 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.
  • [asked about real-life sibling rivalry between his actor-children, Seth Mumy and Liliana Mumy] . . . If my kids could wish each other into the cornfield, as it were, they'd LIVE there. I mean, they'd be in that cornfield all the time.
  • [Before Lost in Space (1965)] From the age of four I was a huge comic fan and still am. When "Lost in Space" came along it was like being in a huge comic, so we jumped at the chance of being part of that project and it proved to be a good choice.
  • I'd been working quite prolifically for about five or six years before we started Lost in Space (1965). One week I'd be a scary mutant in The Twilight Zone (1959) and another I'd be a nice little kid in a Disney movie.
  • [on being more than an actor] I'm very lucky to work in so many different arenas of the entertainment industry and I do enjoy them all, but making music--original music-in the studio or live onstage is definitely my favorite thing to do.

Interesting Facts about Bill Mumy

  1. Wife Eileen Mumy is a childbirth instructor.
  2. Father, with Eileen Mumy, of son Seth Mumy and daughter Liliana Mumy.
  3. Last name is pronounced "Moomy" not "Mummy"
  4. Performed 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.
  5. Had a recurring role as "Lennier" on Babylon 5 (1993). 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, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege Of AR-558 (1998) (he was the Starfleet engineer who worked on trying to decode a Dominion communications array).
  6. Acted 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 (The Twilight Zone: Long Distance Call (1961), The Twilight Zone: It's a Good Life (1961) and The Twilight Zone: In Praise of Pip (1963)) during the 1960s.
  7. Wrote 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.
  8. 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.
  9. On the Babylon 5 (1993) episode, Babylon 5: Eyes (1994), he used his album title, "Zabagabee", as an alien word. Series producer J. Michael Straczynski was reportedly not amused, as he didn't feel it was appropriate to promote outside projects, and it ran counter to his mandate forbidding improvisation on the show.
  10. Was 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.
  11. Credits 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.
  12. '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.
  13. Best known by the public for his role as Will Robinson on Lost in Space (1965).
  14. Along 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).
  15. He is of German, English, Scottish, and French-Canadian descent.
  16. His acting mentor was the late Jonathan Harris.
  17. Was in the band Seduction of the Innocent with his friends Miguel Ferrer and mystery novelist Max Allan Collins. Seduction often performed in and around San Diego Comicon, and Ferrer's good friend Brandon Lee would sometimes roadie for the group.
  18. Father-in-law of Alexa Cline.
  19. Credits Jonathan Harris as his favorite acting mentor/best friend.
  20. As an actor, he was highly influenced by Jonathan Harris.
