What was it? I've seen this film a million times and I still can't place him.

"4. Brooks usually appeared in his own films but Wilder insisted he stay out of Young Frankenstein. The actor felt the funnyman's appearance would ruin the illusion and declared he would only make the film if he promised not to appear in it. Brooks did, however, make off-camera appearances as the howling wolf, Dr. Frankenstein's grandfather, and the shrieking cat."
