Harvey Bullock (born June 4, 1921 in Oxford, North Carolina – April 24, 2006[1]) was an American television and film writer and producer. His work with R.S. Allen included episodes for The Andy Griffith Show, Hogan's Heroes, Love, American Style, and Alice, along with the films Who's Minding the Mint?, With Six You Get Eggroll and Girl Happy.

He graduated from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts in English.

He served with the US Navy in a special operations unit called "Beach Jumpers" during World War II, writing and transmitting false messages over radio in order to deceive the Nazis. After the war, he served stateside in Hawaii.

In 1956, he was married to Betty Jane Folker. Together they had four children: Kerry Scarvie, Diana Bullock, Courtney Bullock and Andy Bullock; and three grandchildren: Sean Bullock, Samantha Scarvie and Andrew Scarvie.

In DC Comics' Batman series, a police officer sharing Bullock's name was named as such as a tribute to Bullock.

Bullock died at the age of 84 on April 24, 2006 due to age-related illness. Coincidentally, in the Batman Comics and TV shows, there is a detective by the same name.

Awards and nominations[edit]

Bullock (with Allen) received a Random House award in 1956, and were nominated for an Emmy award in 1976 for a children's program called Papa and Me.
