Actor. Born in New York City, New York, he began a long acting career at age 15, appearing off, and on, Broadway in such hits as "The Hairy Ape," "You Can't Take It With You," and "Silk Stockings." In Hollywood he played a wide variety of roles from villain to loveable dim-wit, and appeared in such films as Yankee Doodle Dandy, Mission to Moscow , and My Sister Eileen (which also featured Dick York). He is best remembered as the flute-playing, begrudgingly tolerant of his wife's comments and snoops, smart-alecky neighbor Abner Kravitz on Bewitched. Tobias had other TV appearances, including Mannix, The Waltons, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Medical Center , and Starsky and Hutch . He retired from acting after reprising his role as Abner Kravitz in the short-lived Bewitched spin-off, "Tabitha," in 1977. (bio by: Fernando)
