Herbert Anderson (March 30, 1917 – June 11, 1994) was an American character actor from Oakland, CA, probably best remembered for his part as Henry Mitchell in the classic television sitcom Dennis The Menace.

After a few minor roles in films for Warner Bros., Anderson got his big break in the 1941 picture Navy Blues, starring Martha Raye and Ann Sheridan. Another film role for him was that of Pvt. Hanson in the 1949 World War II film Battleground. Anderson also acted extensively in Broadway shows, including the role of Dr. Bird in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial. He was also in the film version of The Caine Mutiny, with Humphrey Bogart, he was the only one of both casts to be both in the Broadway play and the movie.

Anderson is also known for guest-starring roles in many television shows, including My Three Sons, The Bing Crosby Show, I Dream of Jeannie, Family Affair, Batman, The Brady Bunch and The Waltons.

Anderson retired from acting in 1982 after having heart surgery. He died of complications from a stroke on June 11, 1994 in Palm Springs, CA.


Bibliography

Perhaps best remembered for playing Henry Mitchell, the father of an energetic tow-headed boy in the popular television sitcom Dennis the Menace (1959-1963), tall, slender, and bespectacled character actor Herbert Anderson's career encompassed extensive experience on Broadway and in Hollywood films. Contracted to Warner Bros. around 1940, he made his film debut in Meet the Fleet (1940). His first two years were quite busy, but by mid-decade he was landing fewer roles. On stage, he appeared with Henry Fonda in a 1953 production of Caine Mutiny Court Martial. After the cancellation of Dennis the Menace, Anderson's film appearances became quite rare, though he made frequent guest appearances on other television shows, including Batman, Bewitched, and Dragnet. Heart trouble in the early '80s forced Anderson to retire.
