Alfred Pennyworth is Bruce Wayne's trusted Butler. He is voiced by Efrem Zimbalist Jr.
Alfred Pennyworth, Batman's trusted ally and confidant (and surrogate father, a fact emphasized in "Cold Comfort"), has always acted as the common sense of the group, telling the crimefighterss when they need to sleep/eat/take a day off. In fact, Alfred is one of the only people to whom Batman willingly defers. The respect is that great. With Alfred's stellar house-maintaining, cooking, surgery, advising, and occasionally gun-handling jobs, how could any member of the Bat family ever go wrong?
