What classic TV show is Gavin MacLeod in?

The character actor went beyond his roles in 'The Love Boat' and 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show.'

Just because Gavin MacLeod is arguably best-known for his role of Captain Stubing on The Love Boat and Murray Slaughter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show doesn't mean he didn't have an impact across classic television with various appearances. 

With over 100 acting credits to his name per IMDb.com, MacLeod could pop into almost any show and make his presence felt.

The first time I saw Gavin "MacLeod" on TV was as a Brooklyn-sounding thug on the Untouchables. He had one line; "Happy Fourth of July, Mr. Bernard!" as he tossed a Molotov cocktail into hapless Mr. Bernard's limo.

4/9. Ouch!
Not mentioned in this quiz, but my mom is a fan of Hawaii 5-0. She told me she was revisiting the show, and she saw an episode that had Gavin MacLeod in it as a character named "Big Chicken," and she was just floored.

6 of 9. Usually the voice of reason as Murray Slaughter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show and he played Doug Heffernan's Uncle Stu on King of Queens. A great actor in so many shows who could play any role well!

I have a question about Gavin MacLeod. When I watch him guest star on a TV show from the 1960s like "The Dick Van Dyke Show", "The Andy Griffith Show", or his regular appearances on "McHale's Navy", I noticed that he spoke with a very heavy, exaggerated Brooklyn-type accent. By the time he was doing "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and moved on to "The Love Boat" (which I will get to watch again starting Monday at 2 pm) the accent disappeared and he spoke with a very clear, normal voice. Has anyone else noticed this and what do you think made him lose the accent?

In Kelly's Heroes he's very different from Captain Stubbing. I suspect it's acting, rather than an evolving accent.

I thought him as Mur on the MTM show had a really heavy NY accent yet
