Poppins his clogs then?

 

Oh, and could we alter this thread title slightly...pedants like me get easily irritated when we see "there" when it should plainly be "their".

So they're.

Sorry, I realised it myself just after I wrote it.

 

You have to remember that outside this forum I almost never speak or write in English, so it is somewhat easier for me to make mistakes than it is for the other people here.

 

Don't worry - my knowledge of Dutch is limited to "dank u wel" and "Het Kanon."

For voice actors from that era, June Foray's a big one that's still around... probably the only big one.

Does Janet 'Penelope Pitstop/Judy Jetson' Waldo count as a big one? She's 85 according to wiki and 91 on imdb. I wonder if she's done the wild thing with Peter Perfect yet.

No puppets/Muppets thread? Jerry Nelson, who did Count von Count, Floyd Pepper, Dr Julius Strangepork and Robin the Frog amongst others, has been put back in the box.

 

I don't know why I put him here, he didn't do the voices, just the puppeteering. Sorry.

Muppet thread might not be a bad idea if this dude gets a UK obit. "It's time to play the music, it's time to light the light".

No, you were spot on. He did do the voices too according to all the obits and his Wiki page.

Puppetwise, there's always the delightful, if unsurprisingly cobwebbed, Basil Brush's Misters thread.

 

Wey-hey, boom boom etc

Also not really necessary to post it in the dead of 2012 as well.

 

I think every death should be posted in the year thread. That way it's a comprehensive record in a single thread.

But I'm not in charge.

One of the most famous voices in Britain, Brian Cobby, has died aged 83.He was the voice of the speaking clock for 21 years.

 

I never realised he was also this voice.

 

Edit. No, he didn't die 'at the third stroke', just in case you were wondering.

Peter Robbins - the voice of Charlie Brown in the 60s specials - arrested for "stalking and threatening his former girlfriend and a plastic surgeon who gave her a breast enhancement he apparently didn't like."

 

Perhaps the enhancements were shaped like footballs.

Bad news for one DDP team!

 

Reclusive voice actor John Stephenson (and one of the last surviving voices on The Flintstones) died back in late December of last year!
