Donald Alan "Don" Diamond (June 4, 1921 – June 19, 2011) was an American radio, film, and television actor who portrayed "Crazy Cat", the sidekick and heir apparent to Chief Wild Eagle on the popular 1960s television sitcom, F Troop (1965–1967).


Son père est né en Russie et a servi dans l'armée américaine pendant la Première Guerre mondiale ; sa mère est née dans le New Jersey. Il a appris l'espagnol lorsqu'il était dans l'armée américaine dans le Sud-Ouest du pays. Il a figuré dans plus de 25 films et plus de cent séries télévisées.
Il est notamment connu pour avoir joué dans la série de Walt Disney Zorro. Il figure tout d'abord dans le 8e épisode de la saison 1 Evènement tragique dans une apparition non créditée du lancier Ibarra. La production à la recherche d'un faire-valoir au sergent Garcia, lui fait passer un essai, et Don Diamond obtient le rôle récurrent du caporal Reyes qui forme avec Henry Calvin, qui incarne le sergent Garcia, un tandem comique comparable au duo Laurel et Hardy. Apparaissant à partir du 14e épisode de la saison 1 L'ombre du doute, il interprète le caporal dans cinquante épisodes.

Il parlait couramment l'espagnol et connaissait plus de 20 dialectes de tous les coins du monde. Il a été très demandé pour fournir sa voix pour des personnages de dessins animés et peut être appelé « l'homme aux mille voix ». De sa famille, il a dit lui-même que « [son] épouse Louisa est un professeur d'espagnol. Elle est du Mexique. » Ils étaient mariés depuis plus de trente ans et ont eu une fille, Roxanne, née en 1966.

Mrs. Emily Pollifax of New Jersey goes to the CIA to volunteer for spy duty, being in her own opinion, expendable now that the children are grown and she's widowed. And being just what the department needed (someone who looks and acts completely unlike a spy), she's assigned to simple courier duty to pick up a book in Mexico City. She finds this easier said then done. The film's tagline summizes the person of Pollifax: 'Before she joined the CIA, Mrs. Pollifax thought Red China was a set of dishes'.
