Freddie Trenkler (January 9, 1913 - 21 May 2001) was a comic ice skater.

He was born in Austria. He dressed in rags and was known for his hilarious stumbles and falls on Broadway, television and film.

"Combining amazing . skill with amusing slapstick, Trenkler dashes madly round the ice, tears toward the audience, stops dead on his heels a half-inch south of the pit. Amid much that is pleasant, Icetime suffers from too little display of skill and too much display of scenery." --Time Magazine, July 3, 1944

Trenkler died at age 88 in California.
