Doodles Weaver

Doodles Weaver (Winstead Sheffield Weaver) (born on May 11, 1911) is an American comedy actor.

He is well remembered for his frantic routine calling a horse race -- "It's girdle in the stretch! Locomotive is on the rail!" -- featuring his horse character Feitlebaum. He is the uncle of actress Sigourney Weaver and brother of NBC-TV executive Sylvester Weaver.

In the 1940's he was a member of Spike Jones' hilarious band called The City Slickers.
