Sam The Butcher Enters That Big Meat Freezer In The Sky

Sam the Butcher has left the Butcher Shop. That's correct Allan Melvin is no longer with us. Did he cure polio or invent the bedazzler? I'm not sure, but here are a few things he did do:

- Attend Columbia University.
- Worked with Arthur Godfrey AND on Phil Silvers show.
- Appeared on Dick Van Dyke Show and Gomer Pyle.

- Was the voice of Magilla Gorilla
- Voiced Drooper of the Banana Splits.

- Voiced some characters on the cheezeball show H.R. Pufnstuf (not WithchiePoo)

Most importantly, provided meat to Alice the housekeeper for many seasons in exchange for "special favors".

RIP Sammy
