Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

One of Hollywood's most prolific little person actors, Jerry Maren made his mark in history as one of the Lollipop Guild in "The Wizard of Oz" (1939), which launched a six-decade career that encompassed everything from appearances with the Marx Brothers to midget wrestling for the USO and an appearance on "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998). Standing at 3'4," Maren found few roles of substance in his career, but tackled any project with boundless enthusiasm. He was frequently used as a costumed performer in films like "Planet of the Apes" (1968) and in commercials for McDonalds, among countless other film and TV appearances. But he was perhaps best utilized and remembered as one of the few living links to "Oz," one of the screen's most beloved fantasies, and as such, helped to preserve his own immortality for generations of viewers.
