Grady was a musician and singer who, like Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, got his start in television on The Mickey Mouse Club as a Mouseketeer. As Robbie on My Three Sons, which ran from 1960-’72, he appeared in more than 300 episodes, and soon became a heartthrob, appearing on the cover of numerous teen magazines.
