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 Creator/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). He was also the voice of the narrator[[note]]''(You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll kiss three bucks goodbye!)''[[/note]] in ''Film/HardwareWars''.

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 Ride/DisneyThemeParks attractions: the Ghost Host for Ride/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).
