Joined Spike Jones' troup in 1946, recording his horse and auto race routines ("William Tell Overture" and "Dance of the Hours". Developed a spoonerizing character for the Spike Jones Radio Show ("Professor Feitlebaum"), 1947-1949 borrowing heavily from 1930s comic "Joe Twerp". Toured with Jones' stage revue until 1951. Returned to Jones for various record and television projects thru 1964. Was early TV guest in 1940s. Also made many "Day with Doodles" silent comedy shorts for color TV in the early 1960s.
