    He went uncredited for much of his voice work.
    Many of his roles were imitations of Orson Welles.
    He was an undercover narcotics agent in the 60s.
    He was married six times.
    June Foray said, 'He hid a troubled private life with his silly facade.'
    He landed at Normandy on D-Day and was later wounded in battle.
    He shared the 'Man of a Thousand Voices' nickname with Mel Blanc.
    Asked if he regretted working mostly behind the scenes, he said, 'Sometimes, yes. But it's nothing I can't overcome when I look at my bank balance.'
    Whenever Toshiro Mifune appeared in an English-language film, he would ask that his lines be dubbed by Frees, who 'sounds more like me than I do.'
