Typical of busy character actors, John Fielder has made his face--and voice--recognizable to millions. Many would know the bald-pated Fiedler as therapy patient Mr. Peterson on TV's "The Bob Newhart Show" (1972); others might first recognize him for the 1968 movie and spin-off TV series "The Odd Couple" (1970) (or perhaps even from the Broadway play that preceded them). Even kids would know that helium-high voice from animated Disney features like Robin Hood (1973), The Fox and the Hound (1981) and the "Winnie the Pooh" stories in which he voices Piglet. The son of an Irish-German beer salesman, Fiedler knew he wanted to be an actor from the childhood days when he had a full head of reddish-yellow hair. He made his first professional appearances on stage, branched out into live TV in New York and, then, during the 20 years he lived in Hollywood (1960-80), turned up in many films and an ever greater number of popular TV series.
Portayed Homer on NBC Radio's "The Aldrich Family" (1952-1953).
According to his obituaries he was survived by his brother, James Fiedler and a sister, Mary Dean.
Has the impressive distinction of being the only actor to give voice to his character (Piglet) in all the different animated versions of Winnie the Pooh from Walt Disney, from Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968) all the way through to Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005).
Served in the U.S. Navy during WWII.
Diagnosed with cancer, he became a patient of the Lillian Booth Actor's Fund Home in Englewood, New Jersey, in November of 2004 and died there the following June.
Provided the voice of "Piglet" for the Pooh series from 1968 with "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" until shortly before his death. Disney himself heard Fiedler's voice and hand-picked the actor. Ironically, Fiedler died one day after voice specialist Paul Winchell, who voiced the role of Tigger.
Father was a beer salesman.
Used to stage productions in his family garage with neighborhood children.
Played the same character, Mark Lindner, in the 1961 film and the 1989 television production of Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun."
