Mel Blanc was given screen credit as the voice of Caesar the parrot. He was also given considerable feature copy in the film's original pressbook. However, it is obvious from screening the film that Blanc is NOT the voice of Caesar. He was apparently replaced by a female voice artist, perhaps because his voice was, by 1950, too recognizable. The voice of Caesar might have been done by Bernice Hansen except she had stopped working some years before this picture was released.
