SATURDAY MORNING MASTERS: PAT CARROLL

 


PAT CARROLL

(May 5, 1927-July 30, 2022)

 

Notable Roles: Bunny Halper, Rita Simon, Pearl Markowitz, Ms. Biddy McBrain, Mrs. Hope Stinson, Hazel, Katrina Stoneheart, Grandma Arbuckle, Queen Hippolyta, Gussie Holt, Paula P. Casso, Ursula, Morgana, Old Lady Crowley

 

Patricia Ann Carroll’s career began in 1947 when she landed the role of Lorelei Crawford in the film Hometown Girl. She made her television debut in 1952 on The Red Buttons Show followed by her Broadway debut in 1955 in Catch a Star!; the latter of which landed her a Tony Award nomination. Along with appearing on a number of variety and game shows from the 1950s through the 1970s, she had a regular stint on the sitcom Make Room for Daddy as Bunny Halper, Getting Together as Rita Simon, Pearl Markowitz on Busting Loose, Mrs. Hope Stinson on the finale season of Too Close For Comfort and Gussie Holt on She’s the Sheriff; all while still appearing on stage and in film. In 1963, Carroll sued Hanna-Barbera for breach of contract after she was cast as Jane Jetson in The Jetsons and was replaced after only recording a single episode of the 24 that were guaranteed. Her voice acting debut instead game in 1966 as she provided some in The Super 6. In the late 1980s she returned to voice acting as teacher Ms. Biddy McBrain in Galaxy High School, dog Hazel in Foofur, and antagonistic dog pound owner Katrina Stoneheart in Pound Puppies. She also played the feisty grandmother of Jon Arbuckle (Thom Huge) in two Garfield holiday specials. She landed the role of sea witch Ursula in Disney’s The Little Mermaid; a role she would continue to inhabit in the majority of the character’s English-language appearances until 2020 (excluding live-action adaptations in Once Upon a Time, Descendants 2 and The Little Mermaid Live!). Carroll died of pneumonia in 2022 at the age of 95.

SATURDAY MORNING MASTERS: GARY OWENS

 


GARY OWENS
(May 10, 1934-February 12, 2015)

 
Notable Roles: Roger Ramjet, Space Ghost, Blue Falcon, Captain Squash, Commander Ulysses Feral, Powdered Toast Man, 1950s Batman
 
Born Gary Bernard Altman, Owens was notable for his baritone speaking voice and deadpan comedic delivery that made him an ideal narrator and announcer for various projects—particularly of the humorous kind. He began his career as a news reporter on radio station KORN in 1952 in Mitchell, South Dakota, and was promoted to news director two years later. In 1956 he left to be a newscaster at KMA in Shenandoah, Iowa, before becoming a disc jockey at KOIL in Omaha, Nebraska. After bouncing around a few other stations, he finally ended up in California in 1959. He began a two-decade tenure at 710 KMCP (now KSPN AM) where he displayed his surrealistic humor and tendency for puns, as well as inventing nonsense words and doing amusing radio promotions. He also developed several alter-egos: gruff old man earl C. Festoon and his wife Phoebe, stuffy businessman Endocrine J. Sternwallow, goofy good ol’ boy Merle Clyde Gumpf, and crochety old Mergenthaler Waisleywillow. In 1961 he started transitioning into film and television by providing the uncredited prologue narration for The Naked Witch (although it wasn’t released until 1964). In 1965, he made a couple of appearances on McHale’s Navy and voiced the titular character in the animated Roger Ramjet. His most well-known role came in 1968 as the announcer for the sketch comedy series Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, where he established his trademark routine of holding his hand on his ear as he spoke into the microphone. Owens had a long association with Hanna-Barbera Productions, providing either opening narrations or episode narrations for various shows like The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, Yogi’s Space Race and Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, as well as various roles including the heroes Space Ghost in Space Ghost and Blue Falcon in Dynomutt, Dog Wonder and supporting antagonist Commander Ulysses Feral in SWAT Kats. Additionally, he voiced various cartoon characters on Sesame Street, the characters of Powdered Toast Man in The Ren & Stimpy Show and Captain Squash in Bobby’s World, and was even one of the prospective voices for Inspector Gadget in one of the pilot episodes. In 2004, Owens co-wrote the book How to Make a Million Dollars with Your Voice (Or Lose Your Tonsils Trying) with Jeff Lenburg, an anecdote-laden guide on how to get into voice acting. In his final years, Owens served as the promotional announcing voice for retro network Antenna TV until his death in 2015 due to complications from his life-long bout with Type 1 diabetes.
