Gildersleeve, Throckmorton P.

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

(“the Great Gildersleeve”)

    Character played by Hal Peary on radio in the 1930s and 1940s as a boisterous stuffed shirt on the Fibber McGee and Molly radio program, later striking out on his own program on NBC in 1941. The character, particularly his distinctive “heheheh” laugh, was parodied in the character of the floorwalker in Hare Conditioned (Jones, 1945).

    Arthur Q. Bryan (the voice of Elmer Fudd) played Floyd the Barber, and Bea Benaderet also had a role on the show.
