NOTE: It has been reported on several online websites selling movies that Bobby appeared in Please Don't Eat the Daisies,
The Sad Sack
and Heller in Pink Tights, and that he sang and/or wrote the theme in the film Wait Until Dark.

These appearances have never been reported in any book about Bobby and this appears to be false information.
