Carroll was educated in Shreveport, Louisiana, before her family moved to Los Angeles when she was five years old.

She co-starred with Lesley Ann Warren in the 1965 television adaptation of Rodgers and Hammersteins Cinderella. She was also awarded a Grammy for recording her one-woman show Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein, and Gertrude Stein in 1980.

Pat Carroll, who famously played the evil Ursula in Disney's The Little Mermaid, has died at the age of 95:

Carroll has stated that Ursula was one of her favorite roles. She describes herself as an ex-Shakespearean actress who now sells automobiles.

Carroll stated, "People are captivated by mean characters." In reality, there is a deadly type of distraction from the world's horrific nasty characters since we don't meet too many of them in real life. So when we get the chance to witness one, and this one is a giant, it's kind of fascinating."

She was able to reprise her role in a number of Little Mermaid sequels, spinoffs, and theme park rides.

In the English-language dub of Hayao Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro, Carroll also provided Granny's voice.
