RIP To A Voice We All Know…

Wayne Allwine has been the voice of Mickey Mouse since 1977, so if you are younger there’s a good chance he’s one of the only Mickey voices that you have heard.  He took took over the job from Jimmy Macdonald (who had originally taken it from Walt Disney himself) after working the Disney Studios mail room.

RIP Wayne Allwine

Allwine passed away on May 18th, 2009 at the age of 62 from diabetes complications.  His widow was Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse (and Martin Prince of the Simpsons).  Here is a video of them talking about the voices:
