Mr. Whipple
Claim to fame: Best known as the fussy supermarket manager who was famous for saying, "Ladies, please don't squeeze the Charmin!" While Mr. Whipple always chastised his customers for squeezing the Charmin toilet paper, he himself was an habitual offender. Wilson's TV credits also included the recurring role of a local drunk on BEWITCHED for nine years.

Where are they now? In 1999, at the age of 82, Dick Wilson returned to the small screen reprising his role as "Mr. Whipple" after a 14 year hiatus. During that semi-retirement he had suffered two strokes and had brain surgery after a bad fall. Dick is currently retired and resides in Henderson, Nevada where he still receives his complimentary Charmin from Proctor & Gamble each month.
