American actor best known as Mr. Peppermint, a character who wore a red- and white-striped jacket and straw hat and carried a candy-striped magic cane.
Haynes played Mr. Peppermint for 30 years as host of one of the longest-running local children's shows in television, the Dallas-based "Mr. Peppermint" (1961–1969), which was retitled "Peppermint Place" for its second run (1975–1996, syndicated to 108 markets nationwide). He also had a long career in local and regional theater and appeared in more than 50 films.
Most of Haynes' film career was in made-for-television films, especially those set in his native Texas. His chief feature film roles included 1984's "Places in the Heart," as Deputy Jack Driscoll, and in the 1985 Patsy Cline biopic "Sweet Dreams" as Owen Bradley, Cline's record producer.
In 1996 the Lone Star Film & Television Awards honored him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. He regularly appeared in the Red River, New Mexico, Fourth of July parade in a candy-striped Jeep.
Haynes died on 26 September 2011 from complications due to Parkinson's disease and a heart condition for which he had received an artificial pacemaker.
