Happy Birthday Disney Legend Buddy Ebsen!
Many may remember fondly remember Buddy Ebsen Jed Clampett in the Beverly Hillbillies. Or for his detective work on Barnaby Jones.
Did you know he was originally casted as the Tin Man in the 1939 Wizard of Oz? Unfortunately he had an allergic reaction to the aluminum powder used in the make up and was replaced by Jack Haley.
But Buddy Ebsen has quite the Disney portfolio. So much so that he was inducted as a Disney Legend in 1993.
He appeared in such TV specials as the 1973 Walt Disney: A Golden Anniversary
Salute, the 1978 NBC Salutes the 25th Anniversary of the Wonderful World of Disney, and the 2001 Walt: The Man Behind the Myth. Noted for his unusual, surreal dancing and singing style, he was chosen by Walt Disney to be filmed
dancing (on many occassions) as an aid for his animators and Imagineers.
