Sandy Kenyon (August 5, 1922 – February 20, 2010), born Sanford Klein in New York City, was a revered voice-over artist and character actor of film and television. He is perhaps best known for voicing Jon Arbuckle in the first Garfield animated television special, Here Comes Garfield. Sandy made a guest appearance on the CBS-TV series M*A*S*H as Master Sergeant Woodruff in the Season 5 episode "Lt. Radar O'Reilly".
In 1960, Kenyon was cast as a pre-presidential Abraham Lincoln in the episode "No Bridge on the River" of the NBC-TV western series, Riverboat. In the story line, Grey Holden (Darren McGavin) sues the railroad when his vessel, the Enterprise, strikes a rail bridge atop the Mississippi River on a dark, stormy night; Lincoln is the attorney representing the railroad. Tyler McVey is cast as a judge and Denver Pyle as Jim Bledsoe.
In 1961, Kenyon was cast in the role of Ritter on The Americans, a 17-episode NBC series about how the American Civil War divided families.
In the 1963-1964 season, Kenyon was cast as Shep Baggott in a recurring role in five episodes of the ABC-TV western series, The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters, with then-child actor Kurt Russell in the title role.
Other series in which Kenyon appeared include: Richard Diamond, Private Detective, Room for One More, All in the Family, The Dick Van Dyke Show, That Girl, The Partridge Family, Hogan's Heroes, Adam-12, Peter Gunn, Quincy M.E., Knots Landing, Designing Women and The Twilight Zone.
