Arnold Stang RIP

One of the most unique voices of yesteryear has passed on. Arnold Stang, whose nerd countenance graced such films as THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM; IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD; HERCULES IN NEW YORK (co-starring in Arnold Schwarzenneger’s first film); and a little thing called SKIDOO, had a distinct high-pitched whine, which served him well as the cartoon character TOP CAT, and to modern audiences as the Buzz Bee for Honey Nut Cheerios. He had a long career in radio, television and film. And did I mention he was in SKIDOO? “Tony, I think it’s one of them hippies!”
