Nazarro, Cliff

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Personality best known for a jaw-busting double-talk routine which he performed himself in The Penguin Parade (Avery, 1938) as the emcee penguin, and which is parodied in Fifth Column Mouse (Freleng, 1943) by a mouse planning a mission against a cat. Nazarro also provided the voice for Egghead, the forerunner of Elmer Fudd. The voice was, in part, based on Joe Penner’s.
