Tigger and Piglet, R.I.P.
This might seem a strange post for a 44-year-old man to make, but...tough.
Two old friends (they seem like old friends) died over the weekend. Paul Winchell, who was the voice of Tigger in Disney's Winnie the Pooh cartoons and movies, and John Fiedler, who voiced Piglet in those same productions, died within a day of each other. I was a fan of the Pooh cartoons when they first started in the mid-60s, and I have good memories of watching the later Pooh cartoons with my daughters.
These two actors were in lots of other movies and shows, and Winchell was an accomplished inventor.
Here is a story on their deaths. They will truly be missed in the Muley household.
