A friend of mine was talking ...

Question: A friend of mine was talking about Harry Anderson the other day and it brought to mind a guy by the name of Herbert Anderson, who played Henry Mitchell on Dennis the Menace. She said she thought that Herbert was Harry's father. I say no way and dinner at an expensive restaurant is riding on the answer. Please help. You seem to know everything. Thank you.


Answer: Well, I don't know everything (see below), but I do know you've got a free dinner coming. Harry Anderson's father, while an L.A. resident for a time, was a traveling salesman. Enjoy the meal — I love when I settle a bet and know what the stakes are; I mean, I've gotta feel like I'm having some impact on the world, don't I? — and read more about Anderson and Night Court here.

Premise: Sitcom mischief with cartoonist Hank Ketcham's comic-strip terror who really didn't mean to do all those things that drove Mr. Wilson crazy. Joseph Kearns, who played Mr. Wilson, died midway through the 1961-62 season. He was replaced by Gale Gordon as Mr. Wilson's brother, John, who moved into his brother's house (with his own wife, played by Sara Seeger), giving Dennis another Mr. Wilson to torment.
