One of the most familiar voices from my childhood is that of Paul Winchell, who has given life to Disney’s version of A.A. Milne’s classic character from Winnie the Pooh… the bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy Tigger.

I am sad to learn thath is voice will no longer be heard in the Hundred Acre Wood.

To lose Thurl Ravenscroft and Paul Winchell within the space of a few weeks… makes me appreciate even more those who gave personality and voice to characters that made a difference to me as a child. Sterling Holloway, Pat Buttram, Mel Blanc, Jim Henson, Frank Oz…

Who are your favorite character voice talents?
