Sterling Holloway Quotes:

[singing]
Winnie the Pooh: Hum dum de dum, hum dum de dum / I am so rumbly in my tumbly.
Winnie the Pooh: [hits head] Ooh!
Winnie the Pooh: Time to munch an early luncheon / Hum de dum dum dum / Oh, I wouldn't climb this tree / If a Pooh flew like a bee / But I wouldn't be a bear then / So I guess I wouldn't care then / Bears love honey and I'm a Pooh bear / So I do care, so I climb there / I'm so rumbly in my tumbly / Time for something... for something...
Winnie the Pooh: [branch breaks] ... sweet! To eat!


[after Amos is nearly killed during the kite experiment]
Ben Franklin: Amos, speak to me. Was it electricity?
Amos Mouse: Was it electricity?
[shouting, with lightning coming out of his mouth]
Amos Mouse: Was it electricity? Goodbye! Goodbye, and forever!


Amos Mouse: [Voiceover] It was shortly thereafter that Ben took up kite flying. To the framework of his largest kite he fastened a small box, for it was his idea that I become the world's first flying reporter. I was so enthralled by the spectacle spread below that I failed to notice a sharp, pointed wire fixed to the kite just above my head. I was the victim of a plot!

Had major roles in two different film adaptations of "Alice in Wonderland." In Paramount's 1933 version, he played the Frog. In Disney's 1951 animated version, he provided the voice of the Cheshire Cat.

According to Joe Collura in a full-length article/interview on Sterling in "Classic Images," Sterling was the distant relative of Lady Penelope Boothby, an English stage actress, who was immortalized on canvas by artist Sir Joshua Reynolds.
