RIP.

He had one of the funniest parts on an episode of The Beverly Hillbillies when they were in England and their neighbor had a niece(pretty) and nephew from Scotland. Jethro is in love(again) with the niece and has Jed and Granny look through a telescope and think they are seeing the niece but it is 6'6", 220 or so pound body builder Prowse doing all the bodybuilder poses and flexing, naturally wearing a kilt so Jed and Granny think it must a girl.

Jethro: You can't beat her.
Jed: Boy if I was you I wouldn't even try. Granny want to look again?
Granny: No a sight like that stays with you.

He comes around playing bagpipes and Granny thinks it is a big bag of whiskey with multiple spouts for heavy duty drinking and the squealing of the pipes means squealing whiskey. Granny calls "her" a big giant 7 foot tall hairy goomer with hairy tree trunk legs.
