Disney often casts voice actors more than once. Some of these voice doubles are easily recognizable; others may surprise you. Here are some of Disney’s Voice Doubles (or Triples, or Quadruples!).
David Ogden Stiers
David has such a recognizable voice. I first saw him act in Doc Hollywood, but I’ve heard his voice many times in Disney films. His characters usually sound similar, but the role of Wiggins always surprised me.
David Ogden Stiers’ roles include:
- Wiggins – Pocahontas
- Governor Ratcliffe – Pocahontas
- Jumba – Lilo and Stitch
- Cogsworth – Beauty & the Beast
- Narrator – Beauty & the Beast
- Archdeacon – Hunchback of Notre Dame
Isn’t it funny how Wiggins plays Governor Ratcliffe’s assistant? They’re polar opposites, but they are the same voice.
John Fiedler voiced:

- Porcupine – The Fox and the Hound (Image Credit: The Disney Wiki)
- Owl – The Rescuers
This man is the most-often-used voice of Disney. He’s also well-used by other animation companies. He was Slimer in The Real Ghostbusters series, for instance (Who didn’t love Slimer?!) He also voiced Garfield. So, basically, he was working pretty hard during my childhood, and he continues to. There are way too many roles to list, especially if I get into Disney TV series and video games, but here are a few of Frank’s great roles.
- Abu – Aladdin
- The Cave of Wonders – Aladdin
- Flit – Pocahontas
- Footstool (Sultan, the dog) – Beauty and the Beast
- Lucifer – Cinderella III: A Twist in Time (Image Credit: The Disney Wiki)
- Max – The Little Mermaid
- SO MANY more!
J. Pat O’Malley
J. Pat O’Malley’s English accent is memorable. His biography on IMDb says, “J. Pat was a kind and gentle man, who made this world a better place for having been here, and he left his legacy on film.”
