In incredibly sad news, beloved comedian, actor, and voice actor, Gilbert Gottfried has passed away. Mr. Gottfried (1955-2022) was a stand-up comedian with very raunchy material, but was well-known for his voicework in animated projects.
Some of these include Thumbelina, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Animal Crackers, and Cyberchase. But his most famous voice role was that of the parrot, Iago, in Disney’s Aladdin franchise and other projects.
He shall be missed!
