| One of the best child actors of the 1950s and 1960s, freckled-faced Billy Mumy performed with a directness and sincerity that put many an adult performer to shame. Before he was even ten years old, Mumy had played two of the most unforgettable juveniles in TV history: malevolently telekinetic Anthony Fremont on the 1961 Twilight Zone episode "It's a Good Life," and the pistol-toting protagonist of "Bang! You're Dead," an incredibly suspenseful 1962 installment of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, directed by Hitchcock himself. In films from 1963, Mumy's finest cinematic hour-and-a-half was as Erasmus Leaf, an 8-year-old math genius with an all-consuming crush on Brigitte Bardot, in 1965's Dear Brigette. From 1965 to 1968, Mumy appeared as Will Robinson on the popular TV sci-fi fantasy series Lost in Space. As Mumy matured, he found roles harder to come by, though he was given generous screen time in the 1971 Stanley Kramer production Bless the Beasts and Children and was a regular on the 1975 TV weekly Sunshine. He kept busy in the 1980s on the sci-fi convention lecture circuit and as a scriptwriter; he also played cameo roles in remakes of "It's a Good Life" (the middle section of the 1983 Twilight Zone feature film) and "Bang! You're Dead" (one of the components of the 1985 TV revival of Alfred Hitchcock Presents). The many fans of Bill Mumy's previous work in the realm of "fantastic television" were delighted in 1995 to find him playing the recurring role of Lennier on the syndicated TVer Babylon 5.
- Wife is a childbirth instructor.
- Father of Seth Mumy and Liliana Mumy
- Last name is pronounced "Moomy" not "Mummy"
- Performed with Robert Haimer as "Barnes & Barnes", recording the hit novelty song "Fish Heads" in 1978. It is currently the most requested song in the history of the Dr. Demento Show.
- Had a recurring role as "Lennier" on "Babylon 5" (1994). Mumy had also repeatedly tried to land a guest role on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993), but the producers always wanted him to play an alien. He held out until they allowed him to play a human, which he did in the DS9 episode "The Siege of AR-558" (he was the Starfleet engineer who worked on trying to decode a Dominion communications array).
- Acted in a recent episode of the newly-revived "The Twilight Zone" (2002) TV series with his actress-daughter Liliana. As a child, Mumy appeared in three of Rod Serling's classic TZ episodes ("Long-Distance Call," "It's a Good Life," and "In Praise Of Pip") during the 1960s.
- Wrote a screenplay back in the late 1970s in which the "Lost in Space" (1965) family would have found their way back to Earth. 20th Century Fox was committed to the project, but series creator Irwin Allen wasn't interested in reviving the series. The plan dissolved completely after the death of space patriarch Guy Williams in 1989.
- Was the original choice to play "Eddie Munster," in the cult 1960s TV series "The Munsters" (1964). However, his parents did not approve of the makeup young Bill would have to wear for the role; they turned it down. Butch Patrick ended up playing the part. Today, Patrick and Mumy are very good friends and sometimes collaborate on music.
- On the "Babylon 5" (1994) episode "Eyes," he used his album title "Zabagabee" as an alien word.
- Was a lifelong friend of James Stewart, with whom he co-starred in the film Dear Brigitte (1965). The Stewart and Mumy families knew each other well off-screen, Stewart's wife Gloria having been Mumy's Sunday school teacher. He can still do a perfect imitation of Stewart's voice, one that frequently cracked Stewart up during his lifetime.
- Is an only child.
- Credits his "Lost in Space" (1965) co-star Guy Williams with inspiring him to become an actor. Mumy grew up watching Williams on Disney's "Zorro" (1957) TV series; young Bill broke his leg attempting to recreate one of the show's stunts in his bedroom.
- '"Weird Al" Yankovic' was a big fan of "Lost in Space" (1965) growing up, and he and Mumy later became good friends. Mumy reportedly introduced Al to his wife Suzanne.
