Paul Frees (born Solomon Hersh Frees) (June 22, 1920 - November 2, 1986) was a prolific cartoon voice actor. His early talents were used to "re-loop" voices of actors who could not affect foreign accents accurately (the most famous example of this is dubbing TonyCurtis' female voice in SomeLikeItHot where he also made a live-action appearance as a speakeasy-runner), and in 1942 he began voicing in cartoons. His regular roles of note were of Boris Badenov and Inspector Fenwick on ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle''; Prof. Ludwig Von Drake on ''[[Series/WaltDisneyPresents Disney's Wonderful World of Color]]''; John Lennon and George Harrison on WesternAnimation/TheBeatles cartoon; Fluid Man on ''WesternAnimation/FrankensteinJr and the Impossibles''; Double Q, Morocco Mole and Squiddly Diddly on ''WesternAnimation/SecretSquirrel''; Snuffy Smith; Ignatz Mouse from ''Krazy Kat'' (the preceding two part of Al Brodax's ''King Features Trilogy'' in 1963), and the Thing on Hanna-Barbera's ''WesternAnimation/TheFantasticFour1967''. He was also the narrative voice of Jerry in the ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon "Blue Cat Blues". He was the second voice of K.A.R.R. in Series/KnightRider, after PeterCullen, in the 1984 episode ''K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.'' In one of his later roles, he even played a character in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Puppetoons}} The Puppetoons Movie]]'' (which was dedicated to him).

Frees was also heard on many animated {{Christmas special}}s, including ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleDrummerBoy'', ''WesternAnimation/FrostyTheSnowman'', ''WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown,'' and ''Rudolph's Shiny New Year''. His voice was also used for several characters in DisneyThemeParks attractions: the Ghost Host for TheHauntedMansion, the Auctioneer in PiratesOfTheCaribbean, and the Narrator in AdventureThruInnerSpace.

In commercials, Frees voiced Toucan Sam, the Pillsbury Doughboy and Little Green Sprout (for Green Giant vegetables).
