There'd better not be any spunk in this entry...

"Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy.
So Fuzzy Wuzzy changed his name to Ed Asner"

Edward Asner (born 1929), or as he's popularly known, Ed Asner, is an Emmy award winner who has been acting since 1957. He's perhaps best known for his character Lou Grant who debuted in The Mary Tyler Moore Show. After the show's run, Asner's character would be given his own show, Lou Grant. This made him one of the few actors to play the same character on both a comedy series and a drama series (and he won Emmys for both).

Asner started his voice acting career in 1981, but his roles in voice acting really took off in 1992 when he voiced Hoggish Greedly in Captain Planet and the Planeteers. He would go on from that to role to voice many beloved, if somewhat gruff characters, as well as a plethora of one-shot characters for television, movies, and video games, his most famous recent role probably being Carl Frederickson from Up.
