HOW TO FRAME A FIGG is a vintage Don Knotts-frenetic, farcical comedy, and features him at the top of his form as the hysterical, cat-on-hot-tin-roof nervous, persecuted civil servant Hollis Figg. What a lot of people may not recognise is that they are also seeing someone else in a rare character appearance: Figg's slightly dim-bulb sidekick, Prentiss Gates, who is played convincingly by Frank Welker. Welker, whose face is relatively unknown, has nonetheless a voice that is very well known indeed: He is heard in literally bazillions of films, TV series, and cartoons. You have watched but few shows in recent years, including "The Simpsons", that did not feature Frank Welker's remarkable ability to mimic animal sounds and other weird aural effects.
