Actor. Born Richard Percy Jones, his acting career started when he was 6 years old when cowboy film legend Hoot Gibson discovered him while appearing in a rodeo performing riding and lariat tricks. Jones first appeared as a bit player in several of Hal Roach's Our Gang (Little Rascals) shorts before appearing in such films as 'Strange Ways' (1934), 'The Hawk' (1935), 'Daniel Boone' (1936), 'Stella Dallas' (1937) and 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington' (1939). In 1940, he landed his most prominent role as the voice of Pinocchio in Walt Disney's animated film of the same name. Jones served in the Army in Alaska during World War II. Upon completion of his service, Gene Autry, who before the war had cast Jones in several westerns, gave him work in several movies and on the 'Gene Autry Show' before giving him his own television series in 1955, 'Buffalo Bill, Jr.', which ran for two seasons. Among other TV shows he appeared regularly on were 'The Range Riders', 'Annie Oakley' and 'Wagon Train' and also appeared in several more movies. Jones, who has a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame at 7040 Hollywood Blvd. and was named one of the Disney Legends in 2000, died of natural causes. (bio by: Louis Mata)
