||Voice actor, animation historian
Keith Scott (born 23 June 1957) is an Australian voice actor and an animation historian. Scott provided the voice for Bullwinkle J. Moose in the 2000 motion picture The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (for which he had been specially flown to the United States several times) and did the voice of the narrator in George of the Jungle and George of the Jungle 2. Also in 2000, Scott was originally going to be the voice of Diesel 10 in Thomas and the Magic Railroad but he was removed from the film afterwards because the US test audiences thought that Scott made Diesel 10 sound much too frightening for young children.
He has provided voices for various Australian animations, including Yoram Gross's "Dot" feature films, Blinky Bill, Tabaluga, Skippy: Adventures in Bushtown and Flipper and Lopaka. In the case of Yoram Gross' productions, Scott usually provided all of the male character voices.
Scott was a long-time friend of Bill Scott (no relation) and Jay Ward, and is an expert on the history of Jay Ward Productions, authoring the book The Moose That Roared: The Story of Jay Ward, Bill Scott, a Flying Squirrel, and a Talking Moose (St. Martin's Press, 2000. ISBN 0-312-19922-8). He has also spent years studying the work of early voice actors, trying to identify performers who originally went uncredited in cartoons.
