Description:


Parker Fennelly (October 22, 1891 — January 22, 1988) was an American actor who appeared in ten films, numerous television episodes and hundreds of radio programs.

Allen's Alley

Fennelly personified the crusty New England Yankee in roles on radio, films and television. He was heard weekly as Titus Moody on the "Allen's Alley" segment of Fred Allen's radio show where he delivered his famous opening line: "Howdy, Bub."

Television and films



Fennelly made numerous appearances on live television shows of the early 1950s, including Lux Video Theatre, The Philco Television Playhouse and Studio One.

In later years he became a familiar face as the Pepperidge Farm's television spokesman between 1956 and 1985, delivering the slogan "Pepperidge Farm remembers" in his New England accent.

Fennelly portrayed the millionaire in Alfred Hitchcock's The Trouble with Harry (1955), and he replaced Percy Kilbride as Pa Kettle in the final film of the "Ma and Pa Kettle" series. After Angel in My Pocket (1969), his last movie role was Universal's movie How to Frame a Figg (1971) starring Don Knotts.

Death



Fennelly died in 1988, aged 96. His widow, Catherine Fennelly (1892—1988), died five months later, aged 95. Their remains were interred in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, New York.
