Biography: Ed Wynn was a popular American comedian and actor noted for his Perfect Fool comedy character, his pioneering radio show of the 1930s, and his later career as a dramatic actor. Wynn began his career in vaudeville in 1903 and was a star of the Ziegfeld Follies starting in 1914. During The Follies of 1915, W. C. Fields allegedly caught Wynn mugging for the audience under the table during his "Pool Room" routine and knocked him unconscious with his cue. Wynn wrote, directed, and produced many Broadway shows in the subsequent decades, and was known for his silly costumes and props as well as for the giggly, wavering voice he developed for the 1921 musical review, The Perfect Fool.

Marni Nixon sings a version of A Spoonful of Sugar. This is on the Disneyland LP 10 Songs from Walt Disney's Mary Poppins album and features Marni Nixon as Mary Poppins, Bill Lee as Bert, composer Richard M. Sherman doing a version of I Love To Laugh ala Ed Wynn, and Pamela Shannon as Jane Banks. It is also noted that Marni Nixon and Bill Lee were also known as Hollywood's "Ghost singers" for many actors and actresses in Hollywood. Marni Nixon, of course, did the dubbing duties for Audrey Hepburn in MY FAIR LADY, Deborah Kerr in THE KING AND I, and Natalie Wood and Rita Moreno in WEST SIDE STORY. She also contributed to the original soundtrack of MARY POPPINS as one of the barnyard animals in the "Jolly Holiday" number. Marni is brilliant in EVERYTHING she does!
