Biography | show moreshow less
Billy DeWolfe (1907-1974, born William Andrew Jones in Wollaston, Massachusetts) was an actor of vaudeville, stage, film and TV. He got his start in vaudeville and musical revues in the late 1930s; his best known act was "Mrs. Murgatroyd", with a mustachioed De Wolfe in spectacles and a flowered hat impersonating a middle-aged woman. His best known persona, though, was as a lisping, effeminate man with the catchphrace "Busy, busy, busy!" He first appeared on film in 1943, the first of his 30 movies and TV shows. His career enjoyed a renaissance in the 1960s and 1970s. Evidently, something in his campy performance struck a chord with audiences of that era, and he was a frequent guest on The Tonight Show (1970-1972). He also landed recurring roles as Jules Benedict on That Girl (1966-1969), as Roland B. Hutton, Jr. on Good Morning, World (1967) and as Willard Jarvis on The Doris Day Show (1969-1973).
