Walker Edmiston was the  voice of a character many of us in our 20’s and 30’s knew  from TV commericals–Ernie the Keebler Elf.

In the 1950s and early 1960s, Edmiston had a children’s show on local television. “The Walker Edmiston Show” featured his own puppets, including Kingsley the Lion and Ravenswood the Buzzard.

In the 1960s and 1970s, he voiced many characters on shows created by Sid and Marty Krofft, including Dr. Blinkey and Orson the Vulture on H.R. Pufnstuf and Sparky the Firefly on The Bugaloos.

“Walker was one of the most talented voice people in town,” Marty Krofft said. Walker died in February 2007.
