Louis Prima was an American singer, actor, songwriter, and trumpeter.

His only work for Disney was the original voice of King Louie in The Jungle Book. His rendition of "That Old Black Magic" appeared in the DTV video release DTV: Golden Oldies. He was supposed to provide the voice of Louis in The Rescuers, but he suffered a massive heart attack in 1973, and he died five years later; therefore the project of his inspiration, Louis the Bear, was unfortunately scrapped and eventually became that of a deleted character from the movie.
