Corey Gregg Burton (born August 3, 1955) is an American voice actor and singer who provided the voice for several Disney animated characters as well as characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and other cartoons. He voices Quint and Speedy the Snail in The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.
Corey has done a lot of narration work as well. In 2000, he was called in to dub over Deems Taylor's narration in Fantasia. This was done as when the restoration team was preparing Fantasia, some of Deems' narration was missing or in too bad of condition to be publicly released. So Corey redubbed all of the films dialogue to give it a consistent flow. He has also narrated several Disney documentaries and bonus features such as The Story Behind Fun and Fancy Free, Bambi: The Magic Behind the Masterpiece and The Jungle Book: The Making of a Musical Masterpiece.
He received an Annie Award for his work as Ludwig Von Drake in House of Mouse, and an Annie nomination for his voice work as Captain Hook in Return to Never Land and Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He also took over for the late Joe Ranft as the voice of Jacques from Finding Nemo.
Corey has a wide vocal range from voicing high characters, raspy characters and baritone voices. His baritone voice is the reason he took over Tony Jay's roles.
