    R.I.P Mr. Whipple (Dick Wilson)



    [size=13pt]Dick Wilson, 91; Mr. Whipple in Charmin commercials[/size]

    By Valerie J. Nelson, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

    November 20, 2007



    Dick Wilson, a character actor who turned "Please don't squeeze the Charmin" into a national catchphrase as exasperated shopkeeper Mr. Whipple in the TV commercial campaign that ran for more than two decades, has died. He was 91.........
