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.

The DCEU will be so mind-blowingly awesome once we get there.
It seems like Colleen O'shaughnessy will still voice Tails for a bit, at least according to a tweet she put out.
