Phil Harris (June 24th, 1904 – August 11th, 1995) was an American singer, musician, and comedian. He provided the voices for Baloo in The Jungle Book, Thomas O' Malley in The Aristocats, and Little John in Robin Hood.
Harris returned to Disney to reprise his role of Baloo when the television series TaleSpin was being produced and recorded five episodes. However, executives felt that Harris had too big a voice difference from his portrayal of Baloo in the 60s. The role was then given to Ed Gilbert and the episodes featuring Harris were recorded over.
