Biography

Pat Carroll (born May 5, 1927, in Shreveport, Louisiana) is an American Emmy Award winning actress.

As a somewhat heavy-set character actress, she has appeared in many TV programs beginning in the 1950s (playing Cindy Williams’ mother on Laverne and Shirley, for example) and stage productions, but is best known for her roles as the voice of Ursula in The Little Mermaid and the voice of Morgana, Ursula’s sister in The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea.

In 1956 Carroll won an Emmy Award for her work on Caesar’s Hour and was a regular on the sitcom Make Room for Daddy. She appeared on many variety shows of the 1950s and 1960s, such as The Red Buttons Show, The Danny Kaye Show, The Red Skelton Show, and The Carol Burnett Show. In 1965, she co-starred as Prunella, one of the stepsisters in the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella television special starring Lesley Ann Warren.

Carroll scored a personal and artistic success in the late 1970’s with her one woman show on Gertrude Stein titled Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein winning several major theater awards and even a Grammy in 1981 for her recorded version of the performance.

Since the late 1980’s she has done much voice over work on animated programs such as A Pup Named Scooby Doo, Galaxy High, You Don’t Say and a A Goofy Movie. On Pound Puppies she play the series villain, Katrina Stoneheart on the Hanna Barbera version of their TV show.

    Thank you for making my childhood awesome! That includes Jodi and all the amazing former voice actors/actresses at Disney. They make me long for the "good old days" of Disney, not this stuff they have now. [6]
