Early yearsEdit

Judels was a third generation in a family of actors. His grandfather owned several theatres throughout the Netherlands and starred in his own plays. Judels' father combined his love of the theatre and music, and was a stage manager for the Metropolitan Opera in New York for thirty-five years.[1]:110


He appeared in 137 films from 1915 to 1949. In 1928, he was signed by 20th Century Fox to direct Movietone and did extensive work as a voice-over actor in animated films, including the voices of Stromboli and the evil coachman in Walt Disney's Pinocchio (1940),[1]:111 and in the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes short Porky's Garden (1937). He was born in Amsterdam and died in San Francisco, California.
