Professor Ludwig Von Drake is one of Walt Disney‘s cartoonand comic book characters. He was first introduced on September 24, 1961, as the presenter (and singer of “The Spectrum Song“) in the cartoon An Adventure in Color, part of the first episode of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color on NBC. Said to be an uncle of Donald Duck, he 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. Paul Frees was the original voice of Ludwig Von Drake. After Frees retired from the role, the character was briefly voiced by Walker Edmiston. Since 1987, he has been voiced by Corey Burton. In 1961 Disneyland Records released the LP Professor Ludwig Von Drake. The LP had two songs from the character’s debut in the An Adventure in Color episode (“The Green With Envy Blues” and “The Spectrum Song”), as well as new songs and comedy bits.
