A 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 the befuddled father Harry MacAfee in Bye Bye Birdie. He was also the regular "center square" panelist on the game show Hollywood Squares from to , and he voiced four Hanna-Barbera productions: he was Templeton the gluttonous rat in Charlotte's Web , Mildew Wolf from It's the Wolf a segment of Cattanooga Cats , neighbor Claude Pertwee on Where's Huddles? At Northwestern, he joined the Upsilon chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma and is listed among the more famous members of the fraternity. He graduated in and moved to New York City , where he initially worked as a stand-up comic.

The cuter or hotter or sexier you were, the more he did it.
