Happy Birthday and RIP Mr. Frees.

You were a great radio legend and a perfect choice for likeable big guys (the Thing) and characters with great wisdom.

Happy Birthday and RIP Paul Frees!

One of the first generation voice acting legends and greats without you, I don't we would have had so many other great VA's doing voice work for a living without your inspiration.

One of the first cartoons I ever saw was Tex Avery's 1954 '' Cellbound''. Paul Fress played the Prisoner, The warden and The Warden's Wife. Words aren't enough to describe his talent.

Paul Frees (1920 - 1986) was the greatest voice actor in the world.
He voiced Ludwig Von Drkae and other characters he was hired for.

How did he get so famous?
