Comedian Candy Candido puts his three-octave voice to good use in this sweet little Soundie for the song “One Meatball.”

From Candido’s Wikipedia entry:

Candido provided the voice of a skeleton in Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion, and he later teamed with Bud Abbott during Abbott’s attempted comeback in 1960. He was the voice of the bear in the Gentle Ben TV series, and he worked as a voice actor on animated films, notably for Walt Disney, where he portrayed the Indian Chief in Peter Pan, one of Maleficent’s goons in Sleeping Beauty, the Captain of the Guard in Robin Hood, Brutus and Nero in The Rescuers, the Escaped Convict (Gus) in the Haunted Mansion attraction and Fidget the peg-legged bat in The Great Mouse Detective. Other animated films with Candido voices: Chuck Jones’ adaptation of The Phantom Tollbooth, and the Ralph Bakshi movies Hey Good Lookin’ and Heavy Traffic.”

Thanks to the badasses at Badass Digest for this one.
