Thanks for telling us, Belle. Goodness, how do you know these things so fast? You told us about Dave Madden too. Yes, he was Christian, Tiger.

Man. I kept telling myself, "I need to finish writing that fan-letter. He's not going to be around much longer." So this is really sad for me, I wish I'd finished it and told him what he meant to me. I owe him so much. He gave Scrooge McDuck a perfect voice, Scrooge being arguably the greatest comic book figure of all time. His comics have helped form my ideas about economy, humor, storytelling, society, a number of things about who I am. And I always read Uncle Scrooge comics in Young's Scrooge voice. He's also imparted happiness to me through Jack Allan, who I adore, of course. Alan Young and his characters mean so much to me because they're part of me. He is- was a talent, a bit of a TV and Disney legend, a charming man, just so wonderful. They're getting old, you know guys. We're not going to have them forever. The old time aio actors. They're going to keep leaving. There's only so much time, really. I'm glad we treasure them while they're around. Well I guess I need to tell my siblings... Geez, they'll be so sad. This is just hard.

Thank you, Alan Young. Just thank you.

A lot of the legends of the acting industry that have been associated with AIO have passed on. We've lost Hal, Parley Baer, Kenneth Mars, Walker Edmiston, Dave Madden, Paul Herlinger, and now Alan young. Very few of the major legends are still with us.

From oldest to youngest:
Janet Waldo
Will Ryan
Andre Stokja
Earl Boen
Townsend Coleman
Kimmy Robertson
Katie Leigh
Jess Harnell

I don't know what to say. Jack was one of my favorite characters. And I am greatly saddened to know that he will not be returning to Odyssey. I'm trying not to cry.

I remember seeing him and his full Irish accent in the movie The Time Machine. RIP; you will be missed.
