About Paul Lynde

Paul Edward Lynde (June 13, 1926 _ January 10, 1982) was an American comedian and actor. A noted character actor with a distinctively campy and snarky persona that often poked fun at his barely in the closet homosexuality, Lynde was well known for his roles as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched and Harry MacAfee, the befuddled father in Bye Bye Birdie _ both the stage musical and the film-version. He was also the regular 'center square' guest on the game show Hollywood Squares from 1968 to 1981 and was the voice of The Hooded Claw in the animated Hanna Barbera series, The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, though never credited.
