Doodles Weaver

Biography

American character actor, comedian, and musician, who hosted his own NBC variety show The Doodles Weaver Show in 1951. Weaver's mother gave him the nickname "Doodlebug" as a child because of his freckles and big ears.

Born into a wealthy West Coast family, Weaver began his career in radio. In the late 1930s, he performed on Rudy Vallée's radio programs and Kraft Music Hall. He later joined Spike Jones' City Slickers. In addition to his radio work, he also recorded a number of comedy records, appeared in films and guest starred on numerous television series from the 1950s through the 1970s. Weaver made his last onscreen appearance in 1981.

His older brother was Sylvester "Pat" Weaver who served as the President of NBC in the 1950s. Weaver's niece is actress Sigourney Weaver.

Weaver was married and divorced four times and had three children. Despondent over poor health, Weaver fatally shot himself on 17 January 1983 at age 70. Weaver's memoirs, Golden Spike, remain unpublished.
