Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne recently recorded voiceovers for their roles in an upcoming episode of the Disney XD series The 7D, and now Rolling Stone has posted footage of the couple in the studio. Ozzy and Sharon voiced the parts of the Duke and Duchess of Drear, the parents of Hildy Gloom, a regular character voiced by the Osbournes’ daughter Kelly. The episode, titled “Bummer Vacation,” premiered on Saturday (July 30th) at 9:30 a.m. ET.
- The 7D is a spin-off of Snow White that follows the seven dwarves as they work together to help Queen Delightful keep her kingdom in order. Grim and Hildy Gloom are the villainous warlock and witch couple who continually plot to overthrow the queen. The series launched in July 2014.
- Meanwhile, Ozzy admitted in a sequence from the new show Ozzy And Jack’s World Detour that he was afraid to return to the Alamo in Texas 34 years after he drunkenly urinated on the sacred war memorial.
- In the show, which premiered on the History channel on July 24th, Ozzy and his son Jack visit various historical landmarks, a list that included the Alamo. He used the opportunity to issue a public apology for the incident.
- Ozzy, who was banned from performing in the area for 10 years until he donated $10,000 to the memorial fund, says in the clip, “People have memories. They’re going to remember the press about when I urinated there. I don’t really feel keen on going there.” He added that he was worried that he could “get shot, killed, beaten up.”
- When Jack tells him it’s an opportunity to “bury the hatchet,” Ozzy responds, “In the back of my head.”
- Ozzy is currently in the midst of his farewell tour with Black Sabbath, which ends in February in their hometown of Birmingham, England.

Steve Moore wrote: “Perfect example of how when you’re famous, projects and opportunities just get thrown at you for no logical reason.”
Heather Fallon wrote: “Ozzy’s speaking voice is fairly monotone with no timbre and poor diction. He also mumbles incoherently 95% of the time. A ridiculous choice for voiceover work, considering how many talented voiceover artists could do this in their sleep.”
Ukeje Mbonye wrote: “Plumbing the very depths of indignity’s bottomless pit, takes a tremendous amount of talent.”
