Oh, my goodness… I just found this out from your post. Thanks so much for sharing this tribute!
You’re welcome, he’s probably the 2nd celeb’s death this year that I actually cared about (Philip Seymour Hoffman was the 1st).
Did you like him?
Ah, Mickey Rooney, you shall be missed.
And you just HAD to use Mr. Cherrywood’s face from when he says “the Care Bears.” THAT FACE.
Yep, how could I not use it 😉 ?
Seeing “The Care Bears Movie” mention just sent me back a few decades. I didn’t realize that was Rooney.
Yep, it was. I actually didn’t grow up on “The Care Bears” and only heard about them for the first time a few years ago.
Oh no way! I loved them as a kid. Tender Heart was my first teddy bear! 🙂
TASTE THE RAINBOW, MOTHER(Censored)ER!
