February 21: The Voice of Stinky Pete

On this day in 1955, Emmy-award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer was born in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. Toy Story 2 fans know him as the voice of Stinky Pete the Prospector, the doll who had never been opened and was still "mint in the box." Although Pete was the primary antagonist in Toy Story 2, he did not appear in the original Toy Story or Toy Story 3 ... but does appear in Toy Story 3: The Video Game.

Known for his TV character Dr. Frasier Crane on both hit sitcoms Cheers and Frasier, Grammer is also known to Disney fans for his voice work in Teacher's Pet, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, and Runaway Brain.
