Voice of Mickey Mouse Passes Away

Posted: May 21st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Voice of Mickey Mouse Passes AwaySubmit Comment
Veteran Disney voiceover talent Wayne Allwine, who provided the voice of Mickey Mouse for the past 32 years, died May 18th in Los Angeles from complications to diabetes. He was 62.

He first lent his voice to Disney's world-renowned cartoon mouse in 1977 for animated segments of "The New Mickey Mouse Club." He went on to provide Mickey's voice for such toons as "Mickey's Christmas Carol" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."

Allwine and his wife, Russi Taylor, longtime voice of Minnie Mouse, both received the Disney Legend kudo in 2008.

"Wayne not only gave voice to the character of Mickey but gave him a heart and soul as well," said Roy E. Disney, director emeritus and consultant for Disney. "He did an incredible job bringing emotion, humor and appeal to the character, and superbly carried on the tradition originated by my Uncle Walt."

He is survived by his wife, two daughters, three sons and a grandson.

I don't even remember the last time I heard anything with Mickey in it, of course I don't watch the Disney channel. 62 seems awfully young. I think I read somewhere that diabetes is the third leading cause of natural death due to it's various complications. That is why I am trying to give up sweets and energy drinks. I guarantee in another 10 years a sh*t load of 30 year olds are going to get diagnosed with diabetes because of chugging Red Bull and Monster. Be nice to your pancreas people!!!

Good PSA for kids..."Sucking Helium and keeping your nuts in a vice for 62 years- leads to DEATH!- and that's- one to grow on.
