An interview with Haunted Mansion voice actor Dal McKennon

by on Mar.22, 2011, under Syndicated from the Web

As many of you are no doubt aware, Disney voice actor Dallas McKennon passed away last week at the age of 89. McKennon had a long and successful career, providing voices for all sorts of Disney projects, including records, films, and the theme parks.

As Haunted Mansion fans, you might take particular note of the fact that McKennon created many of the sounds and voices in the Haunted Mansion, including the whimpering dog at the caretaker’s side, and the long, howling scream heard in the stretching rooms.

This week (July 20-26, 2009 – Episode 37), the Mousetalgia.com podcast contains an exclusive interview with Dal McKennon from 2003 that was never broadcast. It provides some wonderful insight into the life of an often-overlooked Disney star. We also discuss the current Haunted Mansion “O-pin House” events going on at Disneyland – so give it a listen!
