King Ring A Ding

Herbie Willis

Herbie Willis, better known by his stage name of "King Ring A Ding", is a king of rock 'n' roll who was popular with the youth of the 60s. He is a native of Hooterville whose rise to stardom was made possible by Kate Bradley, although she was unaware that Herbie went on to become King Ring A Ding, whose music she detests.

Behind the Scenes[]

Herbie was played by Ray Hemphill.


  • His character is likely based on Elvis Presley, right down to the title of king.
