Tuesday's Overlooked Character Actors: Sandy Kenyon
Like Frank Adamo, who I wrote about a while back, Sandy Kenyon appeared several times on THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW, usually playing a cop. But the similarity ends there, because while most of Adamo's credits came from that one series, Kenyon appeared in dozens of different TV series from 1949 to 2004 and also did quite a bit of voice work on animated series. He was even one of the leads (along with Forrest Tucker) in a syndicated action series during the Fifties called CRUNCH AND DES, based on stories by Philip Wylie. You've probably seen him many times without really noticing him. Another unsung hero whose work I've enjoyed over the years.
