He also appeared on Muppets Tonight in episode 205. He also voiced Mr. Doozy in Mickey and the Roadster Racers, and he played Steve’s Manager in Chump Change, Ben Taylor in Lovewrecked and Mr. Ferguson in Youth in Revolt..
Willard’s daughter, Hope Mulbarger, said in a statement Saturday that her father died peacefully Friday night. The cause of his death has not been released.
“He kept moving, working and making us happy until the very end,” Mulbarger said. “We loved him so very much! We will miss him forever.”
Willard was rarely a leading man or even a major supporting character. He specialized in small, scene-stealing appearances.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
