Sid Melton (b. May 23 1920, Brooklyn, New Yorkmarker) is an Americanmarker actor probably best known for his roles as incompetent carpenter Alf Monroe in the sitcom Green Acres and as Uncle Charlie Halper, proprietor of the Copa Club, in Make Room for Daddy and its spin-offs.

Born as Sidney Meltzer, he had a long movie career. In 1941 Melton was cast as "Fingers" in The Shadow of the Thin Man. Other movies included On the Town, The Geisha Boy, The Tunnel of Love, and Blondie Goes to College. He appeared in two Lippert Pictures, Lost Continent and Radar Secret Service, which were later featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000, whose hosts gave Melton the nickname "Monkey Boy" due to his comedy relief antics.

His television credits include The Golden Girls (as Sophia's deceased husband, Salvadore, in flashback and dream sequences), Captain Midnight (as Ichabod "Ikky" Mudd), Dragnet and Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. He also had a guest role in an episode of Adventures of Superman called The Deadly Rock, and as a photographer in an episode of I Dream of Jeannie called The Biggest Star in Hollywood. He also guest-starred in one episode of The Dick van Dyke Show, where he played deli-owner Bert Monker who is in love with Sally Rogers. Without actually proposing to her, he makes it very clear that he wants her for his wife. Sally feels he's not right for her, but later admits to her cat, "If I had nine lives like you, I'd give him one."

In 2005, he attended Eddie Albert's funeral along with Green Acres's co-stars Mary Grace Canfield and Frank Cady.
