Voice Actor. He was the voice of cartoon caveman Fred Flintstone's "Yabba-dabba-doo!" for more than two decades taking over the lovable loudmouth when original voice Alan Reed died in 1977. Reed had been doing Flintstone since the character debuted in 1960. His first acting role was in the 1947 film "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." Known for playing villains, he found small parts in movies, including 1952's "The Black Castle" and "The Ten Commandments" in 1956. Corden moved into voice acting in the 1960s, and deployed his dialect skills in bit parts for Hanna-Barbera, including "Jonny Quest," "Josey and the Pussycats" and "The New Tom & Jerry Show." He also contributed to "The Jetsons," "Scooby-Doo" and "The Smurfs." He can most recently be heard on cereal commercials yelling "Barney, my Pebbles!"
