So, the other night, the wife and I stumbled upon the original version of Harry Nilsson's film The Point... With Ringo Starr as the father/narrator...

And I kept hearing this familiar voice... Playing the part of countless other characters...

It haunted me, so I went down the rabbit hole of IMDB...

And found Paul Frees. Who voiced SO many characters from my childhood...

Wow. I'm in awe...

Paul Frees was a master.

Boris Badenov, Ludwig Von Drake, John AND George in the Beatles cartoon, and a jillion others.

If we had a pantheon of greats, Paul Frees, would be right up there.

Here's a compilation. I recommend jumping around a bit to find the gems.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the late, great and ever-amazing Paul Frees (his demo):
