Sterling Holloway Visits Andy of Mayberry

Disney-influences-Television

While watching yet another great old TV show, this time The Andy Griffith Show, I was delighted to see one of my favorite voice actors from the Disney animated films. His name should be known to all but it is undeniably his voice that is instantly recognizable, especially if you like Winnie the Pooh.

If you’re like me, then you’ll get a kick out of seeing this versatile man in a non-Disney role:

Andy meets… Bert Miller?

Naw, it’s Sterling Holloway!

I also have the entire series of The Andy Griffith Show (are you detecting a pattern here?) and found this cameo in the season two episode entitled The Merchant of Mayberry (03-05-62). But I also found something else of interest. Take a look at the grocery store window behind the boys: A 10 lb bag of potatoes for only… 29 cents! Must be 1962.

A face only millions of Disney fans could love! And do!

Before I go, take one more look into 1962 and note the price of 5 lbs of bacon: just 99 cents! Mmmmmm… bacon.

So which character voiced by Sterling Holloway is your favorite?

  • Winnie the Pooh
  • Kaa (from The Jungle Book)
  • The Cheshire Cat
  • or another?

As always, please share your answer with everyone in the comments below!

I have been blogging about Disney since 2007, contributing to several sites and also hosting my own site called Disleelandia. I have since rebooted that site and relaunched it as Disney Nouns. I love Disneyana, the Parks, and finding obscure Disney references!
