John Byner

John Byner did the voices for the cartoon The Ant and the Aardvark, which appeared in the Pink Panther Cartoon series from 1969-1971. The characters are voiced by Byner's impressions of Dean Martin and Jackie Mason. There were 17 theatrical shorts directed by Friz Freleng, (Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies).

Byner guest starred in many television shows including Get Smart, The Odd Couple, Soap and Hollywood Squares. He also hosted the television show Bizarre. He's married to actress Annie Gaybis. His official website is here.

From WIKI: In German-dubbed versions of the cartoon, the protagonists no longer imitate well-known actors. The male aardvark is transformed into a female anteater named Elise (Eliza). Charlie (voiced by Fred Maire) remains male, but is no longer a Dean Martin parody. Elise is voiced by Marianne Wischmann, one of Germany's most renowned voice actresses.
