Larry Clarence "Bumper" Robinson II (born June 19, 1974) is an American actor and voice artist. Robinson got his nickname because he repeatedly bumped into things while running through his home as a young child.



His first acting role was an appearance in a Jell-O pudding pop commercial starring Bill Cosby. As a young child, he also appeared on The Jeffersons, Webster, Night Court, and Days of our Lives, and played the part of Zammis in the 1985 movie Enemy Mine starring Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett, Jr.

Much of Robinson's career has consisted of playing minor, yet popular, recurring characters on a number of shows, most notably Clarence on Amen, Laura Winslow's suitor Daniel Wallace on Family Matters, Dorian Heywood on A Different World, "Boomer" in Gimme a Break, and flirtatious office boy Ivan Ennis on Living Single. He has also starred in the series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Three, Guys Like Us, and Flatland. Robinson portrayed a young O.J. Simpson in the miniseries The O.J. Simpson Story and a young Jackie Jackson in The Jacksons: An American Dream, a role which won him a Young Artist Award for Best Young Actor in a Television Movie. He also played in On Our Own as Nat, Jimmi Jerrico's friend.

In 1994, Robinson guest-starred in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Abandoned" as a Jem'Hadar youth. The same year, he also guest-starred in an episode of Saved by the Bell: The New Class entitled "Bayside Story." He played Doug Parker, the captain of the Valley High School football team, who begins a romance with Bayside High student/cheerleader Megan Jones (played by Bianca Lawson).

In addition, Robinson has done a significant amount of voice work, with roles in animated movies and television shows such as Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School, Pinky and the Brain, Futurama, and Brother Bear and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
