by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 1st 2007 9:30AM

Walker EdmistonYou don't know the name, but you know his work. He was the voice Ernie the Elf in the Keebler commercials and guest starred on...well, just about every single TV show produced since the early 1950s, it seems.

A partial list: The Waltons, Quincy, M.E., Stingray, Flamingo Road, Little House on the Prairie, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Riptide, Falcon Crest, Knot's Landing, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Dallas, Barnaby Jones, Gunsmoke, Columbo, Bonanza, Mannix, Mission: Impossible, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, The Name of the Game, The Wild, Wild West, H.R. Pufnstuf, The Big Valley, Star Trek, Batman, Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, Maverick, The Bob Newhart Show, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

He was known for his voice work, and you could hear him in such shows as The Flintstones, Jem, The Smurfs, Spider-Man, and The Transformers. He also kept me up nights as a kid when he did the voice of that damn devil doll in the Trilogy of Terror movie in the 70s.

Edmiston died on February 15 in L.A. of cancer.

Weaver's best known roles were as Chester Goode on the long-running Western Gunsmoke and as a New Mexican cowboy lawman transplanted to New York City in the Seventies mystery series McCloud.

Western actor sentenced

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 14th 2005 11:03AM
In a strange coincidence a TV western actor who no doubt found himself acting in plenty of saloon shoot-'em ups has been found guilty of killing a man in a barroom shooting (he also wounded one other). Robert Sorrells has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, and has been in custody since the shootings took place almost a year ago. Sorrells appeared in many iconic TV shows, including Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and The Waltons.
