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 "Munsters, The" (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.

Acted in a recent episode of the newly-revived "Twilight Zone, The" (2002) TV series with his actress-daughter Liliana.
