Biography

With her short white-blond hair, gregarious laugh, and hulky frame, Pat Carroll has been delighting audiences for more than 50 years. But, truth be told, her TV work has merely been a means of financing a lifestyle that allowed her to pursue a regular career as a theater performer and director. She is perhaps best remembered as Bunny Halper, wife of nightclub owner Sid Melton, on "The Danny Thomas Show" (CBS, 1961-1964) and as the inveterate matchmaker to Doris Day in the feature "With Six You Get Eggroll" (1968). Younger audiences might recognized Carroll for her stage turn in "Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein," which she played on Broadway and at colleges around the USA, or, more likely, as the voice of the villainous Ursula in Disney's "The Little Mermaid" (1989).
