Alleni Jekins

Allen Jenkins (born Alfred McGonegal, April 9, 1900–July 20, 1974) was an American comic actor. He was the voice of Officer Charlie Dibble on Top Cat.

Biography

Both of Allen Jenkins' parents were musical comedy performers, and he entered the theater as a stage mechanic after World War I, after having spent time working in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Although his screen persona was that of a not-too-bright Brooklyn street thug, Jenkins attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and appeared in many Broadway plays before making his film debut in 1931. He found his niche at Warner Bros., where he perfected his slow-witted but good-natured gangster/taxi driver/cop/etc. character. In the latter part of his career, he appeared frequently on TV, and was a regular on the TV series Hey, Jeannie! (1956).
