    John Fiedler

    A native of Platteville, Wisconsin, he is best remembered as the voice of 'Piglet' in several of the "Winnie the Pooh" animated films and television programs. Ironically he died one day after Paul Winchell who was the voice of 'Tigger.' He was also a talented stage actor.

    Feb 3, 1925-June 25, 2005

    I remember that! His voice will always be seared into my mind. So sweet as Piglet, but I can remember it in other things... not sure what yet!!

    John Fiedler also starred in a very famous Twilight Zone episode as a store manager that complains about ne'r to well "Santa" Art Carney. A masterful piece of acting especially given that it was a weekly series!

    Yeah we watch older movies and sometimes my wife gives me a quiz about if I know the actor we are watching has lived or died!

    Then she asks how, when and where they are buried!!

    So I have to keep on my toes!!

    I remember him from the movie "The Odd Couple" and "Harper Valley PTA". He was around a lot, certainly never hurting for work.

    Trekkies will remember him in the Star Trek episode "Wolf in the Fold" (The one when Scotty is accused of murdering a woman on a planet they are visiting). Turns out Scotty is innocent but a malevolent being once incarnated as Jack the Ripper turns out to be the real bad guy played by John Fiedler. The Trekkie web site Memory Alpha has this interesting entry: Fiedler said in a 1985 appearance on NBC's Today show, "One of my favorite parts was an episode of Star Trek where I played Jack the Ripper." http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/John_Fiedler

    And yes memorable on Newhart and could they have picked a better voice for Piglet

    That would have been a funny episode, wish I had seen it, but will definitely keep an eye out for it. I noticed he never married?

    Didn't know him by name but as soon as I seen his picture it was like 'ooooooohhhhhhhh'. LOL! That face and that voice. I remember him most on The Night Stalker as Gordy.
