ARTHUR ANDERSON claims he's been in every branch of show business but grand opera and the circus. He became a professional actor at twelve on radio, including 18 years on the children's fairy tale program Let's Pretend. His first Broadway stage appearance was with Orson Welles in the Mercury Theatre's Julius Caesar. Summer stock, winter stock, musical stock, television and motion pictures including Green Card and Zelig followed, and for 29-years he was the original voice of Lucky The Leprechaun for Lucky Charms Cereal, as well as doing dozens of on-camera commercials. This is his story!He thought that everyday humans were characters from fairy tales. ... Doing radio there was a challenge, because there was only one studio and the program before ours was a jazz combo. About two minutes before the end of their last number, the saxophonist stopped playing, put his instrument in its case ... Baby Jean Lee, no more than six, did monologues written by her father, filled with corny gags.
