Corden died of complications of emphysema Thursday in a San Fernando Valley hospital, according to his agent Don Pitts.

Forden was born in Montreal, but was raised in New York and as an adult moved to Hollywood, where he was a radio actor. In 1947, he made his screen debut in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

During the next decade he appeared in several movies, including "Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion" and "The Ten Commandments," but his flair for dialects moved him into cartoons.

In 1966, Corden took over as the voice of Fred Flintstone in the William Hanna and Joseph Barbera parody on modern suburban life set in the Stone Age.

For nearly 30 years, Corden supplied the voice of Fred Flintstone in a string of cartoon series and specials.

Corden is survived by his wife, Angelina; two children from his first marriage; three stepchildren and five grandchildren.
