Hans Conried Overview:

Character actor, Hans Conried, was born Hans Georg Conried Jr. on Apr 15, 1917 in Baltimore, MD. Conried died at the age of 64 on Jan 5, 1982 in Burbank, CA .


Hans Conried studied acting at Columbia University, and was already working on radio professionally at age 18. Conried made his screen debut a few years later, at age 21, in the 1938 film "Dramatic School". His distinctive voice and impeccable diction made him a popular radio performer, one of his most memorable radio roles being Professor Kropotkin on "My Friend Irma" (he also played Kropotkin in the film version). 

Over the course of his almost-50-year screen career, Conried appeared in over 205 films, television shows and shorts -- including some marvelous voice-acting roles as 'Captain Hook' (Disney's "Peter Pan"), 'Snidely Whiplash' ("The Bullwinkle Show"), 'Wally Walrus' ("The Woody Woodpecker Show") and 'Professor Waldo Wiggleswort' ("Hoppity Hooper"). His TV guest appearances were many (from "I Love Lucy" to "Mister Ed" to "Maverick"), but perhaps his most famous guest appearances were as Danny Thomas' 'Uncle Tonoose' on TV's "Make Room For Daddy"!

Hans Conried Quotes:

[last lines]
Wally Walrus: And that's why I'm gonna get rid of this woodpecker once and for good.

Dr. Schmidt: To the boys of Adolf Hitler, this hour can have but one meaning. At this hour when the Earth is closest to the Sun, when it is consecrating itself to the Sun, we have only one thought: we too must be close to our Sun. We too must consecrate our lives to our Sun, and the Sun that shines for us is Adolf Hitler. Attention! You will repeat after me the oath of allegiance to our Fuehrer! "I consecrate my life to Hitler."
[Boys repeat]
Dr. Schmidt: "I am ready to sacrifice my life for Hitler."
[Boys repeat]
Dr. Schmidt: "I am ready to die for Hitler."

Davy Crockett: Well, me and Russel are figuring on heading down Texas way. That ain't no place these days for a riverboat gambler with wobbly legs.
Thimblerig: There are times when cowardice is a virtue, my dear Colonel. It makes choosing a cause so very simple. Now, I know nothing about Texas of which you speak, but I do know of the fury of the outraged minions of the law. And as a consequence, I fear what lies behind me far more than the unknown that lies ahead.
