George Robert "Bob" Newhart is an American stand-up comedian and actor, noted for his deadpan and slightly stammering delivery. He is probably best known for voicing Leonard in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie.

For Disney, he provided the voice of Bernard in The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under.

In 1992, Newhart hosted Holiday Greetings from The Ed Sullivan Show, a Christmas special that featured guest appearances by Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and other Muppets. Newhart tells Miss Piggy that he admires her karate chops, and Piggy offers a demonstration, using Kermit as a target. Kermit ducks for the final exercise, however, and Piggy hits Newhart instead.
