He also had recurring roles on "ER" and "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" and appeared in such films as "Hollywood Homicide" and "The Ringer."
Luis Avalos, the Cuban-born character actor best known for his work on the PBS kids show The Electric Company, died Wednesday after suffering a recent heart attack. He was 67.
Avalos played Doctor Doolots -- a composite of Doctor Dolittle and Groucho Marx who used words to cure his patients -- and many other characters on the show. He came on board in 1972 during the second season and remained part of the cast until Electric Company wrapped in 1977.
