R.I.P. Kenneth Mars

Kenneth Mars, a Mel Brooks collaborator who played a Hitler-worshiping playwright in "The Producers" and an earnest police inspector with a malfunctioning artificial arm in "Young Frankenstein," has died. He was 75.

Mars' nearly 50-year career included a long list of voice credits, including "The Little Mermaid,""The Jetsons" and the "The Land Before Time" movies and TV series. Among Mars' other film credits were Woody Allen's "Radio Days" and "Shadows and Fog," and Peter Bogdanovich's "What's Up, Doc." His extensive television work featured regular roles on "Malcolm in the Middle,""Fernwood Tonight" and the 1960s series "He & She." On stage, Mars appeared in such plays as "The Affair" and "Anything Goes."

Damn, he was quite a character.
