Profile:
Bill Thompson (July 8, 1913 in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - July 15, 1971 in Culver City, California, USA) was an American voice actor, known as the voice of Droopy, White Rabbit / Dodo in Walt Disney's "Alice in Wonderland", Mr. Smee (and other pirates) in "Peter Pan", and King Hubert in "Sleeping Beauty", among others.

In "Lady and the Tramp" he was heard in no less than five dialect parts, as Jock the friendly Scottish terrier, Bull the Cockney bulldog, Dachsie the German dachshund, Joe the Italian cook, and the Irish policeman in the park. In short films, he was heard as Ranger J. Audobon Woodlore in several Donald Duck and Humphrey the Bear entries and as Professor Owl in two music related shorts, including the Academy Award winning "Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom", amongst many others. He reprised both of these roles in Disney's various television series, and was the first actor to voice the comic book character Scrooge McDuck in "Scrooge McDuck and Money".

Thompson's final role was as Uncle Waldo in "The Aristocats", released shortly before his sudden death from acute septic shock on July 15, 1971, at 58 years old.
