Lynde's distinctive vocal affect (nasal, halting, and sing-songy) lended itself very well to a side career in voice acting, and has often been imitated in many productions after his death, including Creator/SethMacFarlane's portrayal of Roger the Alien on ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Creator/JeffBennett's portrayal of Peppermint Larry on ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'', and Creator/JohnStephenson's portrayal of Wilford Wolf on ''WesternAnimation/TheKwickyKoalaShow''. Creator/SteveCarell portrayed "the spirit of Uncle Arthur" in a fantasy sequence in the film remake of ''Bewitched'', performing a spot-on Lynde initiation often regarded as one of the highlights of the film.

* BigFun: How Lynde discovered his talent for comedy. After having mononucleosis, his weight ballooned to 250 pounds as a teen. When other teens began to make fun of him, he used humor to make them laugh ''with'' him instead of ''at'' him. Despite this, however, Lynde hated being overweight and as an adult, he was extremely self-conscious about it.


With a CampGay persona (despite never publicly coming out during his lifetime, he pretty much occupied a TransparentCloset), Lynde was also a rather LargeHam.
