Dick Van Dyke (b. 1925) is a celebrated actor who has been at home on the stage, screen, and television sets.

He is well remembered from his films Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, his television series Diagnosis Murder and The Dick Van Dyke Show, and his lauded performance in Broadway's Bye Bye Birdie. He replaced Harvey Korman for one season of The Carol Burnett Show, and was an admirer and friend of Stan Laurel. In turn, Pepe the King Prawn has cited Van Dyke as one of his inspirations.

He hosted The Muppets Go Hollywood in 1979. In 2008, Van Dyke and his a cappella group, the Vantastix, recorded a version of "Bein' Green" for their Put On A Happy Face album.

On August 19, 2011, Van Dyke appeared with the Vantastix at the D23 Expo where they performed a medley of Sesame Street songs.
