  • Hearing Voices?

    What I'm going to miss most about POTC is the voices of the old creepy men in the caves. This got me thinking about other notable Disneyland voices. Obviously, there are the many great voices that Paul Frees and Thurl Ravenscroft did, but there are so many others. What are some of your favorites, past and present?

    For me:
    Henry (Country Bears)
    Wendell (From the original CB show, NOT the vacation hoedown)
    Father (COP)
    Dal McKennon ("Wildest Ride In the Wildernessss" and Mine Train spiel)
    Knowledge is power and knowing is half the battle. (LOVE LIVE CAPTAIN MIKEY!)

    I still think Paul Frees' performances in the HM and AtiS are legendary. A lot of the voice work in Pirates is phenomenal, too.

      Relax Lampwick, the voices will still be there when it re-opens. They're just adding the image of Davy Jones to explain why the voices are there!

      Read the original report... paragraph 5: http://www.miceage.com/allutz/al110805a.htm

        When in doubt, refer to the Guide of Lutz.

            Thurl is one of my favorites though with the Mark Twain, HM and many others.

              "The mythical character of Davy Jones plays prominently in both the second and third movie installments, and his ghostly voice will now echo throughout the first section of the caverns as the boats sail past the first few show scenes. The "Hurricane Scene", the "Crews Quarters Scene", the "Captains Quarters Scene" and the "Treasure Scene" will all be unchanged visually except for a few new props used in the movie, but Davy Jones will offer a dialogue via the new audio system that will set up the tale of a marauding crew of pirates who are searching for their double-agent shipmate Jack Sparrow."

              I guess I could be wrong, it just sounded to me like Davy Jones would now be the only one speaking in this part of the ride.

                I'm disappointed that Thurl Ravenscroft's voice is no longer used on the DLRR.

                  Actually there are no voices in these parts of the rides right now. There are voices in the dark caverns AFTER these scenes, which I understand will remain (with a projection of Davy Jones added). There will be ADDITIONAL voices in the scenes previous to the dark caverns in order to set up the story line.

                  I'm still not seeing anything about the dark cavern voices being taken out. Perhaps its subject to interpretation, but that's my take on the matter.

                    I know this is not quite what you were looking for, but I really loved the great paul Frees and his many alter egos, including the Pillsbury Dough Boy, Ludwick Von Drake, Boris Badinov, etc. A truly great talent. And I also miss Thurl from the trains - "...and no smoking, please - the smoking lamp is out!"

                      Father from CoP: Rex Allen.

                      His is my all-time favorite voice. I can still hear him in my head from old Disney shows: "...brought to you by Ralston-Purina..." and of course from Charlie the Lonesome Cougar: "Now Charlie was always gettin' into mischief..." His deep drawl is just great. Wish I talked like that.

                          I still have a set of records from Disney called The Incredible Journey. The main story is about 2 dogs and a cat that get left behind and travel cross country to meet up with their master. Rex was the voice on this, and was just amazing! I'm so glad that you can still hear him in the current CofP as the voice of Grandpa in the final scene.

                              Just for the record, it's Pete Renoudet.
