November 9, 1886 ~ June 19, 1966 Ed Wynn
The Mad-Hatter in Disney’s 1951 Alice in Wonderland, relatively crazy Toy Maker in Babes in Toyland, and the off the wall Uncle Albert in Mary Poppins, Ed Wynn earned his nickname The Perfect Fool. Known for his fun voice and whimsical mannerisms Ed was always sure to make ‘em laugh, and we owe it all to Keenan Wynn-his son. Without Keenan’s urging (who had a very developed roster of films on his own), we may have never seen Ed Wynn in film.
Thanks for taking the chance in Hollywood! Happy Birthday
