According to a guest column at Jim Hill Media, Stan Freberg did the voice of the beaver in Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. He almost had another part in a Disney animated feature. When Disney was making Alice in Wonderland, there was a segment about the dreaded Jabberwocky and Freberg was called in to do the voice. “I was directed by Walt himself and Ben Sharpsteen,” Freberg remembered, “There was some animation done but Walt was concerned that the segment would be too scary for kids and it was pulled from the final film. I’ve never seen it but somewhere in the Disney Archives it still exists.”

Here’s hoping this stuff will make it to the Masterpiece Edition DVD coming out in January! Read more fun little animation tidbits at Jackson King’s potpourri column Cartoon Crazy!!
