Candy Candido - Choice number 24 as a Disney Legend

Candy Candido had a distinct and famous voice in the last century. He first became famous for the phrase "I'm Feeling Mighty Low." His voice is a common fixture in both Disney movies and rides at the theme parks. Here are the highlights of his Disney Studios credits which clearly demonstrate his worthiness to be named a Disney Legend.

  • Peter and the Wolf - Wolf
  • Fun and Fancy Free - Lumpjaw
  • Lambert The Sheepish Lion - Wolf
  • Peter Pan - Indian Chief
  • Sleeping Beauty - Goons
  • Babes in Toyland - Trees
  • The Jungle Book - Shere Khan's roars
  • Robin Hood - Captain Crocodile
  • The Rescuers - Brutus and Nero
  • The Fox and the Hound - the Black Bear's growls (uncredited)
  • The Great Mouse Detective - Fidget the Bat
  • The Haunted Mansion (ride) - Prisoner
  • Mr. Toad's Wild Ride - Devils
  • Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through - Goons
  • Peter Pan's Flight Ride at them Parks- Indian Chief
  • There is a controversy that is found on the internet about whether or not Candy did the noises made by the Raven in both Sleeping Beauty and the Haunted Mansion attraction.  Because of his incredible voice range and the fact that both ravens never had a voice actor listed, it is quite possible that he did do the sound effects for them, we cannot be entirely sure though.
  • Candy was heard in Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color as an extra voice in the series.
  • He is listed as a cast member in the film Herbie Rides Again. I have searched and cannot find what role he played. Maybe he did a sound effect?
