Kenneth Mars (April 4, 1935 – February 12, 2011) was an American television, movie, and voice actor, who voiced the overseer of Vault 13, in the original Fallout.
Best known for his roles in several Mel Brooks films, the most memorable being the insane Nazi playwright of "Springtime for Hitler", Franz Liebkind, in 1968's The Producers and the relentless Police Inspector Hans Wilhelm Fredrich Kemp in 1974's Young Frankenstein.
Mars had the role of the friendly fireman neighbor, Harry Zarakartos, on the television sitcom He & She, and has also been featured in a number of small roles in programs such as the Misfits of Science pilot episode, the audio program Adventures in Odyssey, and the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Shadowplay". He was cast opposite Bette Davis in Hello Mother, Goodbye!, a 1973 television pilot that was aired by NBC but never added to its schedule.
Mars often played characters with exaggerated accents. He was German in The Producers, Young Frankenstein, and Malcolm in the Middle, and was the Croatian Hugh Simon in What's Up, Doc?. His voice work is most remembered for his role of Ariel's father, King Triton, in Disney's animated feature The Little Mermaid.
Mars died from pancreatic cancer in Granada Hills, Los Angeles, California on February 12, 2011; he was 75 years old.
