Welcome to the TIMOTHY PATRICK MURPHY SITE. This is our main page. We also have the GUEST APPEARANCES page featuring "Quincy",
"CHiPS" and "Hotel". Then there is a page devoted to the movie "SAM'S SON", the "MICKEY
TROTTER STORY", "DALLAS EPISODES", a PHOTO page (a big THANK YOU to a contributor on the "Ultimate DALLAS
forum" for the black and white photos on this site, and also for the German magazine cutting.) Finally, we have a LINKS
A big THANK YOU to everyone who has sent me e-mails regarding this site.
The site is, I believe, the only one on the internet
devoted to this wonderful actor. I aim to keep alive his memory and ensure he is never forgotten.
I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolences to the victims, and their families, of the September
11th atrocities in the United States. My thoughts are with you all.

The Mickey Trotter Story

ABOVE: Timothy Patrick Murphy as Mickey Trotter.
Timothy Patrick Murphy was born in Hartford, Connecticut, on 3rd
November 1959. He died in Sherman Oaks, California on 6th December 1988. He began his career appearing in television commercials,
and after that he seemed to play mainly guest roles. His best-remembered must be the part of juvenile delinquent Mickey Trotter
in "DALLAS" (1982-83). I regard this as his best role, and, after seeing him in this role, I was absolutely crazy about him!!
He also starred in: "Glitter" (1984), "Hotel" (1984), "With Intent to Kill" (1984) - a TV movie released on video as "Urge
to Kill", "Time for Miracles" (1980), "The Seekers" (1979), "Centennial" (1978), "CHiPS" (1982), "Quincy" (1982) and "Hunter"
(1986). In 1984 he won the Young Artist Award for Best Young Actor (Guest) in a TV series for "The Love Boat" (1977). His
final role, I believe, was the teen comedy "Doin' Time on Planet Earth" from 1988, the year he died.
Also, I received an e-mail from Mr R. Thomas who told me that Timothy Murphy also starred in
"The Bushido Blade" from about 1979. Does anyone have any more information I can provide on this?
