R.I.P. Alan Young (voice of Scrooge McDuck)

Sorry for the lateness of this post, been busy…

Alan Young, the actor best known as the voice-actor for Scrooge McDuck passed away on May 19; he was 96 years old. Young is also remembered for his role on the sitcom Mr. Ed. I of course grew up listening to the man’s voice on Ducktales in the early-90s (due to the network not dubbing the series into Finnish until the mid-90s). Young even voiced Scrooge in the recent remake of the NES video game based on the series. I also remember him fondly for voicing Haggis McMutton in The Curse of Monkey Island.

Burst me bagpipes, you will be missed!
