Paul Winchell: TTFN

Paul Wincell, the voice of Tigger, died Friday morning. He voiced several characters that children of all ages will likely remember:

But he was perhaps best known for his work as the voice of the lovable tiger in animated versions of A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh" - with his trademark "T-I-double grrrr-R."
Winchell voiced memorable characters in numerous animated features over the years for Disney and Hanna Barbera. He was Gargamel in "The Smurfs," and Boomer in "The Fox and the Hound."

Rest in Peace Mr. Wincell, and ta-ta for now.
