LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Harvey Bullock, a writer for “The Andy Griffith Show” and other TV comedies, died April 23 at South Coast Medical Center in Laguna Beach of age-related illnesses, his daughter said. He was 84.

Born in North Carolina, Mr. Bullock graduated from Duke University with a bachelor’s degree in English. He served in the Navy during World War II, writing and transmitting fake radio messages designed to mislead the Nazis.

Mr. Bullock spent five years writing for “The Andy Griffith Show.” In the late ‘60s, he and writing partner Ray Allen collaborated on the screenplays for the comic films “Who’s Minding the Mint?” “With Six You Get Eggroll” and “Don’t Drink the Water,” which was adapted from a Woody Allen play.

Mr. Bullock and Mr. Allen also worked together on scripts for “The Flintstones,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “Hogan’s Heroes.” They were executive producers of “Love, American Style,” and creators and executive producers of the animated early 1970s series “Wait Till Your Father Gets Home.”
