    Old Subs -- Captains Voice

    Always wondered who did the narration on the old subs (you know, "here in this realm of eternal darkness, nature has provided her creatures with their own eerie luminescence...")

    You don't see writting like that very often! How I miss the old, serious, and just slightly pompous Disney of old.
    it's a sale of candy and a sale of plush, it's a sale of toys and disney stuff
    there's so much that we sell, that it's time we tell, it's a plush plush sale!

    I know what you mean. X. Atencio's writing for the Haunted Mansion? Perfect.

    Wow, I didn't realize X. Atencio wrote the HM narration. I agree -- it's perfect! And, Paul Frees' delivery couldn't be any better. I wonder who actually spoke the old Subs narration? Pretty sure it's not Frees, although he was such a master at voices, perhaps it is him! Anyone know for sure?

    I believe it is actor Richard Basehart. He later starred in Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. I think I read that somewhere in an interview with his wife. But please let me know if I'm incorrect.

    I dunno who it is, but it isn't Richard Basehart -- I pulled out the Sub soundtrack and The Satan Bug for comparison, and it's not him. But who? This one's a real stumper!

    Amen to that. The slightly tongue-in-cheek way that reality rubbed against fantasy in the original Sub narration was the essence of Disneyland adventure, IMO. (The sub-Nemo-thingie... meh.)
