Trivia: Character actor PAUL FREES appeared in a few films including 1954's Suddenly (with Frank Sinatra) and 1953's War of the Worlds, but he's mainly known for his cartoon character voices, such as Inspector Fenwick on The Dudley Do-Right Show, the magpies on The Heckle and Jeckle Show, and Boris Badenov on Rocky and His Friends. Besides doing the grunts and groans for Glenn Manning in 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST, Frees was the voice of Kalin in 617-THE SWORD AND THE DRAGON and the narrator in 804-THE DEADLY MANTIS.
