Untitled[edit]

There is a lot of information here, but it could use more secondary sources and citations. It should be possible to make this more than (essentially) a long list of credits. Karen | Talk | contribs 06:48, 13 January 2007 (UTC)


In the late 60's or early 70's Paul also produced an album called "Paul Frees and his Poster People" where he sang popular songs in the voices of Peter Lorre, Boris Karlov, Bella Lagosi, Ed Wynn, and the like. I believe it has been long out of print.

--- Someone might want to mention that Frees did several of the characters in Nilsson's animated movie "The Point!" (which has a wiki page) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.185.242.147 (talk) 22:40, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Also voices from "Rocky and Bullwinkle" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.185.242.147 (talk) 23:20, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Ghost Host info[edit]

I just reverted a long parenthetical remark explaining that the name Master Gracey is derived from Yale Gracey the Imagineer. This addition was awkward and had basically nothing to do with Paul Frees. However, I think someone should take the time to add similar info, well-written and properly sourced, to the Haunted Mansion article where it is relevant. --Karen | Talk | contribs 05:58, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Orson Welles[edit]

There are several mentions of Frees imitating Orson Welles in his narrations. It's also noted that the two sounded a lot alike, so was Frees truly trying to imitate Welles or simply narrating in his own natural tone?

Also there is mention of Frees appearing onscreen in "Patton." Can anyone confirm this, perhaps with a screenshot? I recall hearing Frees' voice at one point but the actor onscreen was not him. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.207.25.194 (talk) 19:45, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

I can't help you with Patton, but he doesn't sound very Wellesian speaking as himself on the two Disney attraction CDs (speaking to whoever is directing him). A good cite would be miles better than one person's opinion, though. --Karen | Talk | contribs 02:17, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
His narration for Stan Freberg Presents The United States of America Vol. 1 obviously is meant to sound like Welles with its mock pomposity that makes fun of the supposedly reverential subject matter. By contrast, the narration for Hoppity Hooper doesn't call for any such reference to Welles and sounds more natural. Richard K. Carson (talk) 20:50, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Re: Rankin\Bass[edit]

I don't have a book source, I just know that when Paul Frees worked for Rankin\Bass, one of his memorable characters was "Burgomsister Msister Burger" the antagonist who hated toys and declared Kris Kringle an outlaw in "Santa Claus is Coming To Town"!MARK VENTURE (talk) 23:36, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
