    Hey there! Been lurking for a bit here, but now I've got a question. Heh.

    Has anyone seen a copy of the "It's A Small World" demo track floating around? It's the only DLF track I don't have. I know it was only on that NFFC disc back in 1998, so it's pretty rare, but since I'm such an insane completeist, I thought I'd ask. Thanks. ^_^

    Hey, they get paid to play the piano and compose, not to sing.

    Poor guys. ::)

    Ah, just listened to it. Yeah, the girl singing is HORRIBLE. Ah well. I don't collect obscure audio for the quality...

    She's really awful. Did you know she provided the voice of the mother on that "classic" tv series Davey and Goliath? :p

    Oh, Davey....

    I used to love that show too, when I was a kid. Actually, it was kind of a love/hate relationship. Come to think of it, it was the only thing on at 5:30 in the morning on a Sunday!

    ;)

    Obviously Ginny Tyler's forte was her speaking voice, not her singing one. She admits that herself in her work-in-progress autobiography, on which I am helping somewhat with the editing. I present a short excerpt on that topic here:
    *******
    Music was all around me and I loved it, yet for me to sing with others was a recipe for disaster. Acting, however, came a bit more naturally. Hansel and Gretel was a first grade school play. Memorizing my lines as Gretel was easy, but I also went to the trouble to learn all of Hansel's lines. Good thing too, because Hansel forgot his speeches and Gretel was able to cue and assist him. Gretel could do that, I thought, as I had a little brother myself and and spoke for him many times. The teacher told Mother, "She's a natural!" (which was difficult to realize, at age six). "A natural what?" my mother asked. (She probably figured the teacher meant I was a natural big sister, for little brother Donny and I were always busy with adventures.)
    As for my aforementioned singing, in the second grade our teacher said, ?Now class, we are going to sing a new song. Uh, Virginia -- you sing very softly, almost whisper -- the entire sound is very important. It?s a blend of sound -- uh, just mouth the words!? Little did I realize that it was my first lesson in ?lip-sync,? which became a wonderful career in Hollywood and motion pictures.
    **********
    And that probably explains why Ginny stuck to narration and character voices for her Disney records, and the singing was left up to people such as Teri York, Marni Nixon, and Robie Lester, whose voices could all knock the roof right off Sunset Sound Recorders.

    As far as Disney goes, Ginny narrated most of the "Storyteller" LP's in the early 1960s, usually replacing the original narrators from the 1950s.. She remade SNOW WHITE, BAMBI, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, PETER PAN, and others. She and Robie Lester teamed up for MORE MOTHER GOOSE, and Ginny was paired with Teri York for ACTING OUT THE ABC'S. Around the middle of the decade, Disneyland Records began using her more often for character parts rather than narration.. she was in three of the four adaptations of the Oz books (witch voices were one of her specialties), she played Christopher Robin in one Pooh LP, and her final Disney record appearance was as Witch Hazel in the 1974 TRICK OR TREAT LP (subbing for June Foray).

    Ginny was the two amorous squirrels in SWORD IN THE STONE, although she only received credit for being the little girl squirrel. Most of her animated cartoon work was done outside Disney, as she made a couple of appearances on THE FLINTSTONES (she and Nancy Wible were the carhops who sang "Here we come on the run with a boiger on a bun..."), and was the voice of Casper the Friendly Ghost in the 1963 made-for-TV cartoons. As someone has already mentioned, she did all the female voices in DAVEY & GOLIATH for the first 13 episodes, after which Nancy Wible took over for the rest of the series. Ginny was also the teenaged sidekick Jan on SPACE GHOST, and Flirtacia for THE ADVENTURES OF GULLIVER, both for Hanna-Barbera. She was the voice of Polynesia the parrot in Rex Harrison's DOCTOR DOLITTLE, and provided animal sounds for such TV shows as THE LUCY SHOW, MR ED, and LASSIE. And, those who grew up in southern California in the early 1960s will remember her hosting the syndicated MICKEY MOUSE CLUB reruns on KTTV.

    Yes, that was Ginny as Lucky the pup... our old buddy Dal McKennon was in that LP too (and of course he was also in the movie, although his contribution mainly consisted of barks). I hear, by the way, that Dal is turning Walt Disney World on its mouse ears and having a great time during his visit there this week.

    Sorry for replying over a yerar later but I didn't realizer the Disneyland voice discussion on this thread.

    I think first thaty you're referring to "Rolly the pup". Sam Edwards,Ginmnny Tytler,Robie Lester & Dal McKennon were often called to replace performers,aoccrding to some websites like JimHill Meda.com,in case anyone wonders why,due to money reasons.And to that poster above,don't make fun of DAVEY AND GOLIOATH or of Tyler.BTW GUMBY,also by D&G man Art Clokey, featured Tyler &her friends Dick Beals,Nancy Wible, Hal Smith, Dal McKennon alll of whom, have been on Disney producitons (plus Art Clokey himself as Pokey in 1955-57..Dal McKennon did the voice in every short after that.)
