    Dean Jones, an actor and singer who made his name in a string of popular Disney films in the 1960s and ’70s, notably as a racecar driver in the “Love Bug” franchise, died on Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 84.

    The cause was Parkinson’s disease, said a spokesman, Richard Hoffman.

    Precocious and multitalented as a youth, the boyishly handsome Mr. Jones began his career as a teenage radio host and performer in amateur musical revues. He became a stage actor, and he and Jane Fonda made their Broadway debuts together. But it was not until the mid-1960s that he found his niche, as the affable, hapless, clean-cut Everyman in a series of genial family comedies produced by the Walt Disney Company, beginning in 1965 with “That Darn Cat!”

    Awww, I liked him!

    Boy, a bad week for celeb deaths, eh? Wayne Dyer, Wes Craven and now Dean Jones.

    Well, that's three, should be done for a while.
