SAM's voice

(Larry D. Mann was the voice of YUKON CORNELIUS and originally the voice of SAM THE SNOWMAN as well)

I had a question about BURL IVES/SAM on my FACEBOOK page. Yes, LARRY D. MANN recorded Sam's parts first in CANADA. I have heard these recordings via Ellie Cowan (voice supervisor BERNARD COWAN's son). SAM doesn't appear in any scenes with the other characters, so it was easy for this change to be made. SAM was described as a NICELY NICELY type character from GUYS AND DOLLS by Romeo Muller...hence the vest with chain watch. The animators may have animated a SAM without BURL's beard and look BUT have never seen photos of this.
