Wow, once one beloved celebrity dies, there seems to be a string of other celebrity deaths that follow!

Today we mourn the loss of the beloved comedian and actor, Jonathan Winters, who passed away yesterday on April 11, 2013. He had appeared in many movies and television shows over the years and was one of the last surviving old-time comedians.

Also, he was no stranger to animation and had lent his voice to several projects. He lent his voice to the English dub of “Alakazam the Great”,

to an episode of “The New Scooby-Doo Movies”,

Take a guess which of those characters he lent his voice to!

  1. I remember watching his program when I was little … I think I just dated myself … he was soooo funny and could make a joke about any object which he found. Years later I remember him showing up on “Mork and Mindy” as their child … you see, children on Ork were born old and got younger as they “aged”. He was a gifted comedian and opened a lot of doors for today’s comedians … he will be missed
