Mickey Mouse is dead

Wayne Allwine, who was the voice of Mickey Mouse for more than three decades, has died at 62.

The Walt Disney voiceover artist was also an Emmy Award-winning former sound effects editor and foley artist. He married Russi Taylor in 1991.

She was the voice of Minnie Mouse.

Wayne was only the third person to voice Mickey Mouse. His first appearance as Mickey was voicing the animated lead-ins for The New Mickey Mouse Club in 1977. His first appearance as Mickey for a theatrical release was in the 1983 featurette Mickey's Christmas Carol.

He died of complications of diabetes Monday morning at UCLA Medical Center.

A Tabloid Baby shout out and condolences to Jon Crowley.

It's a shame this guy has died, cuz Mickey Mouse never will be the same. You can not chance his voice from one day to another by the simple reason everybody was acusttomed to this elderly man's.
