Vaudeville actor, radio actor, newspaper cartoonist, prolific movie voice actor, and circus performer whose schtick was playing clarinet off-key while mugging. He was born September 11, 1892 in Jacksonville, Oregon, USA, and died of lung cancer on October 3, 1967 in Woodland Hills, California. Colvig is probably best known as the voice of Disney's Goofy and the original Bozo the Clown, a part he played for a full decade beginning in 1946. Colvig worked for not only the Disney studio, but the Warner Bros. animation studio, Fleischer Studios, and MGM, where he voiced a Munchkin in The Wizard of Oz. He was also one of the pioneers in advocating warning labels about cancer risk on cigarette packages in the USA. (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)
