Sterling Holloway, Cheshire Cat — Disney Animals Then and Now
Then: By the release of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in 1951, Holloway had been voicing Disney characters for 10 years, including ‘Dumbo’s Mr. Stork and ‘Bambi’s full-grown Flower. Though he didn’t get into voice work until 1941, Holloway had been appearing in films as early as 1926.
NOW: Holloway went on to balance performances in television and film with plenty of Disney voice work. By the time of his death in 1992, he had created the voices behind Kaa the Snake of ‘The Jungle Book,’ Roquefort of ‘The Aristocats,’ and Winnie the Pooh, a role he reprised for more than 10 years.
