DOODLES WEAVER BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Doodles Weaver was born on May 11th, 1911 in Los Angeles, California with the birth name Winstead Sheffield Glenndenning Dixon Weaver.  As a young boy he received the nickname Doodlebug from his mother.  After High School he attended Stanford University and after graduating he began working in the entertainment industry.'
 
Weaver first started with radio in the late 1930's and was sometimes a guest on the "Rudy VallĂ©e's" program and on the "Kraft Music Hall".  In 1946 he joined the, Spike Jones City Slickers band and toured the country with Spike Jones Music Depreciation Revue up until 1951.  He developed the famous character he is remembered for, Professor Feedelbaum. 
 
In the mid 60's, he recorded a version of "Eleanor Rigby" where he would sing, mess up the words, insult and interrupt while playing the piano.  Doing what he did best, practical jokes and comedy, Weaver began to make a name for himself.
 
He also made many "Day with Doodles" which were silent comedy shorts for color television in the early 1960's.  Along with working on the radio and making short films and occasional television appearances, Weaver also did commercials such as an Ajax commercial.
 
It was this commercial that prompted NBC to give him his own series, "The Doodle Weaver Show".  Doodles was also the host to a number of children's television shows and made appearances on such series as "Batman", "Dragnet 1967" and "The Monkees".  Some of his film roles were in "The Birds", "The Nutty Professor" (1963), "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963) and his final film was "Under the Rainbow" (1981).   
 
Weaver married four times throughout his lifetime.  His first wife was Beverly Masterman whom he wed on September 26th, 1939 but this marriage was short lived and produced no children.  His second wife was Evelyn Irene Paulsen whom he wed in 1946 and divorced just two years later.  He then married his third wife, Lois Frisell in 1949 and this marriage too ended in 1954.  His fourth wife was Reita Green in 1957 and they had two children before this marriage also ended in a divorce in July 1968.  He did not marry for a fifth time and the remainder of his life he dealt with alcohol abuse.  On January 17th, 1983, Doodles Weaver took his own life in Los Angeles, California at the age of seventy one by a gun shot wound.
