Parker Fennelly (born October 22, 1891 in Northeast Harbor, Maine; died January 22, 1988 in Peekskill, New York) personified the crusty New England Yankee in roles on radio, films and television.

Fennelly was also a noted playwright.

He appeared in a total of 10 films, including
The Kettles On Old MacDonald's Farm (1957), Pretty Poison (1968), The Trouble With Harry (1955), and How To Frame A Figg (1971), and hundreds of radio episodes.
