Voice actor and writer Jim MacGeorge passed away yesterday at the age of 92.

MacGeorge may be best known for impersonating Stan Laurel onscreen (including an appearance on Get Smart), often paired with Chuck McCann as Oliver Hardy. Ironically, MacGeorge did the voice of Hardy for the Hanna-Barbera/Larry Harmon animated series based on the duo (with Harmon himself voicing Laurel). MacGeorge and Harmon reprised their roles for The New Scooby-Doo Movies.

MacGeorge voiced Beany Boy, Crowy and Uncle Captain Horatio K. Huffenpuff for the animated Beany and Cecil series; he would reprise Huffenpuff for the short-lived "New Adventures" series from Spümcø. Some of his other roles include Crazy Claws in The Kwicky Koala Show, Gort in The Mighty Orbots, Wimper in Clue Club and Dr. Wilmer Scarab in Bionic Six. His last voiceover role was Giovanni on "The Dangerous Duck Brothers" (from Random! Cartoons).

As a writer, MacGeorge worked on Jay Ward series including Rocky and Bullwinkle, Fractured Flickers and George of the Jungle.

It looks like San Diego Comic Con will once again be virtual, with the event being held from July 23-25. They hopefully plan to have large, in person conventions in 2022, but it seems like a smaller venue will be held in November. In addition, Wonder Con will be virtual again, and be held from March 26-27.

About Butch Hartman's debacle s an artist recently, the dude is so much better than this. At least it's not something like being accused of something like Sexual harassment but, yeah disappointing to say the least.
I'll have to wait for the home release of the Tom and Jerry movie to watch it, but from what I've seen I like the Kayla character's relationship with Tom. It was nice to see a character befriend him before Jerry for once.
Here's a video from both The Watch Tower Database and Kuro The Artist about Dwayne McDuffie.

We are in the Endgame now...
