Hundreds upon thousands of talented voice actors and actresses have graced Disney films over the years. One of these wildly impressive people has risen to the top of our conversations as of late. His name is Sterling Holloway.
In addition to being the narrator of Mickey and the Beanstalk, The Pelican and the Snipe, Three Caballeros, Peter and the Wolf (from Make Mine Music), The Little House, Susie the Little Blue Coupe, and more, he also voiced of some of our favorite characters:
Roquefort from The Aristocats
Mr. Stork from Dumbo
Kaa from The Jungle Book
Winnie the Pooh
Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland
Adult Flower from Bambi
Before we leave you to ponder all the information we just threw your way, we’ll offer you this fun bonus fact: Sterling Holloway was once considered for the part of Sleepy, but the part eventually went to Pinto Colvig, the voice artist behind Goofy’s distinctive guffaws.
