Voice Doubles: Part 3

Disney Momma  —  February 22, 2015

This post has taken me a long time to get back to, but I still wanted to make sure that I finished my list of Voice Doubles (voice actors who voice multiple characters).  Some of these voice doubles are easily recognizable; others may surprise you. 

Make sure you check back at Part 1and Part 2 to see the voice actors whom we have already met.

Bill Thompson has voiced some unmistakable characters, including Mr. Smee and the White Rabbit.  (When you think about it, I’m sure you hear the similarity.)  Not all of his voices sound similar, however.  He also voiced multiple characters from Lady and the Tramp, even the Italian chef, Joe.

Verna Felton was a talented stage, radio, voice, and film actress.  Her voice added so much personality to some of Disney’s beloved (and hated) female characters.

Bruce Reitherman was cast by his father, Wolfgang, who directed his films.  Later in life, Bruce produced many natural history documentaries for PBS, National Geographic TV, the Discovery Channel, and such.
I was surprised to learn of his roles because I wouldn’t have connected these child characters in my mind.  He was 11 and 12 years old, respectively, when these productions were released.

Bruce Reitherman - Christopher Robin Bruce Reitherman - Mowgli

Bruce’s roles include:

  • Christopher Robin – “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree” short
  • Mowgli – The Jungle Book
