Years after the film Dear Brigitte, in which Bill played a boy who has a crush on Brigitte Bardot, star James Stewart said Billy Mumy "was the only child actor worth a damn."

After the show's end, Bill continued to appear in films and on television including the starring role in the feature film Rascal (1969) and Papillon (1973). He also co-starred as a musician in TVís Sunshine (1975). Bill also wrote songs for the band America, and was one of the Barnes and Barnes music duo.
