He is best known for providing the voices for the characters of Droopy, Spike, and Barney Bear in various cartoons produced by MGM from the 1940s through the 1950s. Thompson was also a regular performer on the radio show "The Jack Benny Program," playing the role of a frustrated sound effects man named "Sound Effects Man" or "SFX Man." In addition to his voice work, Thompson appeared in films such as "The Little Mermaid" and "Alice in Wonderland" (both produced by Disney). Thompson passed away in 1971 at the age of 58.

He then became a staff announcer for NBC in Chicago, where he met Jack Benny and became a regular on his show. Thompson's other voice roles included Uncle Waldo in "The Aristocats" and White Rabbit in "Alice in Wonderland." He also lent his voice to several television commercials, including for Kellogg's cereals and Peter Pan peanut butter. Thompson's deep, gravelly voice and talent for creating distinct character voices made him one of the most recognized and in-demand voice actors of his time.

Thompson was born in Terre Haute, Indiana and grew up in Texas. He attended the University of Texas before starting his career in broadcasting. He eventually moved to Hollywood to pursue his voice acting career full-time. In addition to his work in film and radio, Thompson also had a successful stage career, appearing in productions such as "The Time of Your Life" and "Detective Story." He was married to actress Mary Margaret McBride and had two children. Despite his success, Thompson struggled with alcoholism, which ultimately led to his early death at age 58.
