Best known as the voice of curmudgeonly Rabbit of the Hundred Acre Wood, Ken Sansom, began his career as an actor in the early '70s, making his TV debut with a bit part on the popular family sitcom "The Brady Bunch." That same year he got his first taste of voice work playing Rosie the Cat in the animated musical movie "Shinbone Alley," which starred Carol Channing. Yet Sansom's voice acting career didn't catch on until the '80s. In the meantime, he appeared on a number of popular TV shows, among them: "The Odd Couple," "All in the Family," "Columbo," and "Charlie's Angles." He also garnered roles in several noteworthy films like Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye," the popular Paul Newman/Robert Redford vehicle "The Sting," the Disney love-bug adventure "Herbie Rides Again," and Barbra Streisand's "Funny Lady." Then came the '80s, and with it a rush of voice work. Sansom was first cast as a recurring character on the cartoon series that centered on a pint-sized family, "The Littles. The next year he voiced Hound on the popular robot action series "The Transformers." Then he took over the role of Rabbit on "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh." He went on to play Rabbit in various projects, from shorts to video games to full-length films. When Pooh and the gang returned to TV in 2007, 16 years after the cancellation of their last series, Sansom took on Rabbit again in "My Friends Tigger & Pooh."
