Disney Cast Member, Ed Wynn, is born November 9th, 1886
Known for his distinct giggly wavering voice, Wynn portrayed Uncle Albert
in Disney’s 1964 live-action musical Mary Poppins and Mr. Hofstedder, the watch jeweler in the 1965
Did you know, there is a fun joke in this scene. During this laugh scene Bert (Dick Van Dyke) says, “I once knew a man with a wooden leg named Smith.” Uncle Albert (Ed Wynn) says: “Really? What was the name of his other leg?”
At Disney’s Frontierland, in the “Waiting Room” queue area of the Frontierland Staion of the WDW Railroad, there is a shelf which contains unclaimed luggage. Among the items is an antique wooden leg, with the name “Smith” written on it. This is a clear reference to this Wooden-Leg-Named-Smith joke from Mary Poppins.
