Lloyd Bridges was originally cast and recorded as Whitmore, but he died before completing the film. Mahoney's zest and vigor led to Whitmore's personality being re-worked for the film. John Mahoney stated that doing voice work was "freeing", and allowed him to be "big" and "outrageous" with his character.
