No... he was long dead when these were made, unfortunately.

Death isn’t an objection when animation is involved; they could of course splice in dialogue from a previously recorded source. However it is unlikely that they would have found him utter the line in English and French, so I doubt that it is him as well.

I only mention this because Douglas Adams has a part in the new “Hitch-Hiker’s Guide” radio series, “playing” the character Agrajag, and he died a few years ago…

They created his performance from his recordings narrating the stories as audio-books: the producers lifted Agrajag’s lines of dialogue from these, then edited them into scenes with the other actors.
