    I heard he hated Lucille Ball and was extremely mean.

    When I was searching for the Fred Mertz picture, I saw dozens of other roles he'd played. I had no idea he did anything outside of ILL, but he was great as a grouchy old bastard. I aspire to be just like him.

    He was 20+ years older than Vivian Vance (Ethel). She was pissed about playing his wife.

    In "It's A Wonderful Life" he's the cranky guy yelling at George Bailey when George asks him what happened to his car that hit the tree. (Of course, the accident never happened because George had never been born per his wishes)

    Neat! I bet he was in a lot of stuff I've seen but never recognized him. The pics I saw while searching he almost always didn't resemble Fred Mertz somehow.

    They did look a little alike, along with Mussolini.....

    I watch a lot of TCM and every time I see him in a movie I say "Hey there's Fred Mertz."

    After I Love Lucy, William Frawley went on to stardom as Bub in My Three Sons. Uncle Charley took over after Bub died.

    I didn't know that. I remember Uncle Charley, I was very very young, because he scared me....he was always pissed off.
