Personal Quote:

It's never too early....for a salad! See more »


His first professional voice work came while working on the 1964 movie Gunfighters of Casa Grande (1964). He filled in for a voice actor in a radio promo. This led to more voice work; by the 1970s, he was one of Hollywood's busiest voice talents. See more »
