Pinto Colvig was initiated into show business on the carnival circuit via his talent for playing the clarinet and his ability to ham it up while doing so. In the off-time from attending Oregon State University (then known as Oregon Agricultural College), Pinto would perform in the circus and in vaudeville. It was at school that his second career as a cartoonist first blossomed, in the college newspaper. He moved his family to Hollywood in the early 1920s and found work with Mack Sennett's Keystone Studios as an animator. This turned into acting and writing work as well. In 1928, he met fellow cartoonist Walter Lantz (later of "Woody Woodpecker" fame) and the two began collaborating. The lure of the larger animation studios was too great, however, and Pinto was hired on at Disney where he voiced such notable characters as Goofy, Pluto, and the dwarfs Grumpy and Sleepy. After a falling out with Walt Disney, he ventured on to Warner Brothers MGM (where he sang as a Munchkin in "The Wizard of Oz"), and the Max Fleischer Studio (where he voiced Bluto in the "Popeye" cartoons). He returned to freelance at Disney for many years and was also integral in developing the character of Bozo the Clown with producer Alan Livingston at Capital Records. He was the first actor to portray the clown on television. A longtime smoker, Colvig passed away from lung cancer at the age of 75 .

QUOTES FROM Pinto Colvig CHARACTERS

Maleficent says: It's incredible, sixteen years and not a trace of her! She couldn't have vanished into thin air. Are you sure you searched everywhere?

Maleficent's goon says: yeah, yeah, anywhere, we all ...

Maleficent's goon says: Yeah, yeah!

Maleficent says: But what about the town?The forests?The mountains?

Maleficent says: But what about the town? The forests? The mountains?

Maleficent's goon says: We searched mountains, forests, and houses, and let me see, in all the cradles.

Maleficent says: CRADLE?!

Maleficent's goon says: Yeah, yeah, every cradle.

Maleficent says: [angry] Cradle? [to her pet raven] Did you hear that my pet? All these years, they've been looking for a baby! [laughing hysterically]

Maleficent's goon says: [laughs along]

Maleficent says: [abruptly stops laughing] [angry] Fools! Idiots! Imbeciles! [drives her search patrol away] [alone with her pet again] Oh, they're hopeless. A disgrace to the forces of evil.

Grumpy says: Hah! Women! A fine kettle of fish.

Grumpy says: A fine bunch of water lilies you turned out to be. I'd like to see anybody make me wash, if I didn't wanna

Grumpy says: A fine bunch of water lilies you turned out to be. I'd like to see anybody make me wash, if I didn't wanna.

Snow White says: And you.

Sleepy says: *yawns*

Snow White says: You're Sleepy.

Sleepy says: How did you guess?

Grumpy says: Pretty soon she'll be tying your beards up in pink ribbons and spraying you down with that stuff called, uh, perfoom.
