Mario de Monti") of Space Patrol – The Fantastic Adventures of the Spaceship Orion.[1] He continued being successful on the TV screen by playing Ioan (German: Johann), the driver and bodyguard of Graf Yoster (and afterwards many other characters).

As a voice actor he dubbed American stars such as Walter Matthau, Peter Falk and Mel Brooks[2] and people or animals in animated films like Impy's Island.
