NOTES

Fans of the ABC daytime drama "General Hospital" may remember Fox as Nigel Pennysmith.

About his role as Dr Bombay in "Bewitched": "So they called me in to play this doctor, and I thought it just was a one-shot, and that was it. And I thought to myself, I don't want to just be any old doctor, so I made him a very kind of--there's a man I knew in Ceylon actually, who'd been a vet, and he was the officer in charge of the camp that we were in, and it was an all male camp, and one evening, I was on duty, and we got six Women's Royal Naval Service arrived to be put up, and it was an all male camp. So I went to this officer and I said 'We got six Women's Royal Naval Services, what shall I do?' And he said 'Oh, I don't know, give 'em a hot bran mash, some clean straw, and bed 'em down for the night.' And I thought what a great way to play this doctor. And that's the way I played him, and they just kept writing him back in."

Fox treated "Andy Griffith" fans to delightful bits of his one-man show "Miniature Music Hall" during three cast events he attended in 1995 in Grand Rapids, MI, Winston-Salem, NC and Oxford, AL.
