TV: Please Don't Squeeze The Coffin -- Mr. Whipple Goes to the Great Grocery in the Sky

Dick "Mr. Whipple" Wilson squeezes it for all its worth

Character actor Dick Wilson, known to millions of Americans as TV's Mr. Whipple from Charmin's paper towel commercials, has died at 91. There is no doubt that the 70's were a golden age for catchphrases and "Please, don't squeeze the Charmin" ranks right up there. Wilson played George Whipple from 1964-1985, enough time to sketch in the very Larry Craig like character detail that he secretly went in for a little of the old Charmin squeezin' himself.
