What is contained on this page is only a partial listing of voice work that Sam Edwards was known to have done. There is more to be discovered, either through call sheets, old scripts, invoices, or the like, and will be added as we find it. Some of the work is difficult to ascertain, since many recordings were specifically uncredited, but have been identified by fans of either Sam or the records/shows on which he appeared. In the case of TV showsm they are listed followed by specific episodes, roughly in chronological order starting with his first appearance. For character voice work on records, the original album number and label are include along with any roles he played. If a contemporary source is known, it is listed and linked to. Sound bites are linked to where legally appropriate or available. Many of the items can otherwise be found on eBay or collector sites, particularly the Disneyana material. Uncredited means that he was left out of the credits, common for some character actor appearances in the business. Updated 09/27/2007.
