Alan Young

Alan Young had a long and memorable career. It all began in England where he was born. A childhood of moving around from England to Scotland and then Canada, along with a four year bout with bronchial asthma which left him bed ridden and would help form his appreciation of radio. By the age of 13, he had a job as an actor in radio, and by the ripe old age of he was writing and acting in his own show on the CBC stations. This would soon get him known as the All-American boy working on the Alan Young Show despite being Scottish by way of England. By the time this shows popularity waned, Alan had gone on tour doing a comedy act. This would all lead to his creation of the television version of "The Alan Young Show." Also during this period he developed a movie persona along with a string of films. In the 1960's, Alan would land his most well known role as Wilbur on "Mr. Ed." Among a number of cartoon voice overs, mainly as Scottish accents, he would fill the role as 'Scrooge McDuck' for Disney's "Tale Spins" series. In his retirement years, Alan has appeared on a number of TV series in guest roles.
