    (June 19, 1915-January 8, 1994)
    Born in Addison, Alabama
    Birth name was Maxwell Emmett Buttram
    Best remembered as Gene Autry's sidekick in TV and movies and as Mr. Haney in 'Green Acres' (1965-71)
    Acted in 'Wild in the Country (1961),' 'Twilight of Honor (1963),' 'Roustabout (1964),' 'Sergeant Dead Head (1965),' 'I Sailed to Tahiti with an All Girl Crew (1968),' 'The Sweet Ride (1968),' 'The Gatling Gun (1973)' and 'Back to the Future Part III (1990)'
    Voice actor for 'The AristoCats (1970),' 'Robin Hood (1973),' 'The Rescuers (1977),' 'The Fox and the Hound (1981)' and 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)'
    Founded the 'Golden Boot Awards' to honor actors, directors, stunt people and other movie cast members who've made important contributions to the Western film genre (1982)
    Died of kidney failure in Los Angeles at age 78
    His last name is a joke in and of itself.
    He described his own voice as one that 'never quite made it through puberty.'
    He was going to be a minister but the acting bug superseded.
    He tried out as Roy Rogers's sidekick but didn't make it, so Autry snatched him up.
    In his first few movies with Autry his character had different names, but later he went by the 'original' character name Pat Buttram.
    His first movie without Autry was with Elvis in 1961, and he went uncredited.
    At 18, he visited the Chicago World's Fair and was interviewed by a disk jockey as a 'typical southern visitor.'
    His observations were so laugh inducing the station hired him as a regular for their 'WLS National Barn Dance' program.
    He served in the U.S. Army during World War II.
    After CBS ended 'Green Acres' in 1971, he famously quoted that was the year Fred Silverman 'canceled everything with a tree - including Lassie.
    He guest starred in 'The Munsters,' ' Adam 12,' 'Love: American Style,' ' Knight Rider' and 'Who's the Boss?.'
    He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
    He once said of his friend, co-star and self-made millionaire, 'Gene Autry used to ride off into the sunset. Now he owns it.'
