Henry Djanik in a 1987 Maigret episode

Henry Djanik (1926-2008), often credited as Henri Djanick, was a French voice actor who dubbed Bert (Bart) on the French Sesame Street co-production 1, Rue Sésame. He first dubbed Bert a few months prior to the debut of 1, Rue Sésame , in a 1977 guest appearance on variety series Numéro un, and also voiced Bert on records (such as Ernest et Bart Reçoivent Leurs Amis). Djanik was also heard in the French dub of The Dark Crystal as the Slave Master.

Djanik was a frequent French voice of Anthony Quinn and dubbed Telly Savalas in several films (including The Muppet Movie), Topol in For Your Eyes Only, Freddie Jones in Dune, and others (usually burly or imposing actors and heavies). He was heard in the French animated features Les Maîtres du Temps, Le Big Bang, and Tintin et le Temple du Soleil. Animation dubbing included Eeyore and Owl in the Winnie the Pooh series, many characters on Thundercats, Monsier D'Arque in Beauty and the Beast, Rock Bottom on Felix the Cat, and Sykes in Oliver and Company.
