Said to be an uncle of Donald Duck, Professor Von Drake is described as a scientist, lecturer, psychologist, and world traveler. The character displayed his “expert” knowledge on a variety of subjects in eighteen episodes of the classic anthology series….as well as on a number of Disneyland Records Sing Along Songs…..or in the case of this video seen herewith….Snore Along Songs.
In this wonderful music video….Professor Ludwig Von Drake shares one of his favorite “bedtime go to sleep songs”….as he adapts the classical music beauty The Blue Danube Waltz….as he invites us all to snore along with him.
Paul Frees was the original voice of Ludwig Von Drake…..and after Frees retired from the role….the character was briefly voiced by Walker Edmiston…..and since 1987, he has been voiced by Corey Burton
