The German voice of Zazu in 'The Lion King' was originally done by Uwe Paulsen. However, Prüter re-recorded the part and became the character's official voice actor, although Paulsen can be heard in the radio play and the soundtrack version of 'I Just Can't Wait to be King'.
Prüter died on October 28, 2014, aged 69. He is survived by his children, and his grandchildren, Saskia Hartmann and Jamila Prüter.
