Bob Hastings got his show business start in radio after WW2 as the voice of Archie Andrews in the show of the same name (a spin-off of the Archie Comics series) on the Mutual Broadcasting System. The good-looking Hastings made the transition to television smoothly in 1949 in early galactic-action series like "Captain Video" and "Atom Squad". His first recurring role was as a lieutenant on Phil Silvers' "Sgt. Bilko" show.

Most of his career has been spent in television, and he's notable for roles such as Captain Binghamton's yes-man Lieutenant Elroy Carpenter on "McHale's Navy", one of the two Tommy Kelsey's on "All in the Family", and Captain Ramsey on "General Hospital". Hastings has also done much voice work, including that of The Raven on the "Munsters" series, Superboy on the "Superman/Aquaman" cartoons in the 1960s, and in recent years, the voice of Commisioner Gordon on the animated "Batman" cartoons.

  • Played Archie Andrews on radio.
  • Did voice work for Challenge of The Superfriends (1978) and went on to provide the voice of James Gordon on Batman: The Animated Series (1992).
  • Brother of 'Don Hastings (I)' (qv)
