Hal Smith Poster

Other Works

  • Hal Smith was the host of a children's television show called, "The Pancake Man", that aired during the late 1950s or early 1960s. It was presented by the International House of Pancakes and featured Hal as the chef with two characters, Pete and Repete [syrup bottles]. The show featured some great animation.
  • Played the role John Whitaker in the popular radio show from Focus On The Family, Adventures In Odyssey. He died very suddenly, and the producers of the show had to piece together old clips of his voice on past shows in order to create a storyline for his character, John Avery Whittaker, to leave the show, which was basically an opportunity for Whit to go overseas as a missionary. They even used a real-life taping of a letter that Hal had written and read after the death of his wife, as a "goodbye letter" to Whit's friends in Odyssey at his going away party. A actor named Paul Herlinger took over his role when he quit.
