Thee isn’t much one can say about the passing of voice actor, inventor and ventriloquist Paul Winchell (Tigger, Dick Dastardley, Gargamel, etc.) beyond what Mark Evanier reports – except to say he will be greatly missed. I grew up with “Winch” myself as a regular viewer of Winchell Mahoney Time on WNEW (Channel 5) in New York, and his ubiquitous presence on television in the 1960s and 70s. I was certainly a fan of his work. A great entertainer, a great man. Rest in peace.
