Thomas Terry Hoar-Stevens was a distinctive English comic actor, known as Terry-Thomas. His only Disney role was voicing Sir Hiss in the 1973 Disney animated film, Robin Hood. He was famous for his portrayal of disreputable members of the upper classes, especially cads, toffs and bounders, with the trademark gap in his front teeth, cigarette holder, smoking jacket, and catch-phrases such as "What an absolute shower!", "Good show!", "You dirty rotter!", and "Hard cheese!". He was also the inspiration model for Samuel T. Philander in The Legend of Tarzan. He was considered for the role of George Banks in Mary Poppins before David Tomlinson was chosen.
