Gigireder

Gigi Reder (1928-1998) was an Italian character actor who voiced Ernie on the 1978 Sesamo Apriti soundtrack album.

Reder appeared in the Italian comedies of Paolo Villaggio, as accountant Filini in the Fantozzi movies (nine between 1975 and 1996). In Villagio's two outings as Fracchia, he played a killer's elderly mother in Fracchia la belva umana and reprised Filini for Fracchio contro Dracula. English-language co-productions included War and Remembrance (as an Italian police chief) and an episode of Return of the Saint. His occasional dubbing assignments included anime and the role of Baron von Butcher on the live chimpanzee series Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.
