Before They Were Stars (2-for-1 Special): Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner Do Voices on “The Gift of Winter”

Since we did a Shouts from the Back Row tribute to Harold Ramis yesterday, I thought I’d dig up some obscure footage from his fellow Ghostbuster, Dan Aykroyd. In 1974, before they were both cast on Saturday Night Live, Aykroyd and Gilda Radner lent their voices to a Canadian animated television special called The Gift of Winter. This is the very first credit on Aykroyd’s filmography and you’ll instantly recognize his voice the moment you hear it. Interestingly enough, this was right around the same time that Bill Murray was lending his voice to a Fantastic Four radio series.
