Paul Frees: Welcome, indeed!

He's was the voice of John Lennon and George Harrison, the voice of Boris Badenov and Inspector Fenwick, the voice of the Pillsbury Doughboy, Froot Loops Toucan Sam, and the Jolly Green Giants' protogé, Sprout, among others. Paul Frees had a long and varied career in radio, television, movies, and voice-over. Arguably,more people have heard Frees as the Ghost Host of Disney's Haunted Mansion than any of his other work. Listen to these outtakes of Frees recording sessions for Disney. Happy Halloween!

Welcome, Foolish Mortals!
