It is a lasting shame to Baby Boomers that we have not educated the generations that have come after us about the true origin of the double-decker hamburger.
We heard some Millennial the other day complaining that a burger they were tasting was "just a rip-off of the Big Mac.". Just...wow! Any Baby Boomer worthy of the name should know the Big Mac itself is a rip-off. It's given away right there in its name!
Probably not, but we guarantee you, you've heard his voice.
His name is Pinto Colvig. He was active in the animation industry from its beginnings and wound up providing the voice for Walt Disney's Goofy. He also voiced Practical Pig (of Disney's :3 Little Pigs") and 2 of the 7 Dwarfs (Sleepy & Grumpy) as well as providing the barks for Pluto in the early Mickey Mouse cartoons.
In 1946, Capitol Records launched a series of albums aimed at children featuring a circus clown they called Bozo. Once again, Colvig was the man behind Bozo's voice for over a decade.
He passed away in 1967 at the age of 75.
