returns once again to the world of Winnie the Pooh to reprise the voice of Piglet, which he created for Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
and performed throughout the featurettes and on the series, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
. Shy and insecure because he is such a very small animal
, Piglet has nobility and generosity of spirit that far exceeds his size, and Fiedler's warm and loving performance captures every nuance of this beloved character.
A versatile actor on stage, in film and television, Fiedler is perhaps most recognized for his recurring roles on television's The Bob Newhart Show and The Odd Couple. He also performed in the Broadway, film and TV productions of A Raisin in the Sun. He made his Broadway debut in The Seagull with Montgomery Clift, and has since appeared there in Our Town, The Crucible and Little Hotel on the Side.
His first feature film was opposite Henry Fonda in Twelve Angry Men. Other film roles among his 37 features include True Grit, The World of Henry Orient, That Touch of Mink and Sharkey's Machine. His television credits include the series Star Trek, Cheers, The Golden Girls, L.A. Law, Buffalo Bill and the soap opera One Life to Live.
