    RIP Alan Young (Voice of Scrooge McDuck, Wilbur from Mr. Ed)

    Alan Young has unfortunately passed away. I'm a big DuckTales fan, so this is very sad.

    It's been a bad year for celebrity deaths, but at least in his case, he lived a long life. He was 96.

    R.I.P. Mr. Young.

    Mr. Ed re-runs were some of the first shows I can remember watching as a kid and I definitely enjoyed the DuckTales series.

    Sorry to hear that. Enjoyed Mr. Ed sooooooo much as a child. He seemed like a gentleman. 96 is a long run and I believe he led a great life. R.I.P., sir.

    Scrooge McDuck (as voiced by the talented Alan Young) was one of my favorite characters. This is unfortunate news after all.

    The first movie I remember Alan in was the original The Time Machine where he played Filby. RIP sir, you'll be missed.

    George Burns' production company -- someone that few here will remember, except for his role in Oh, God!, but he was a megastar -- was behind Mr. Ed. When they began casting, Burns said, "Get me Alan Young. He seems like the kind of man a horse would talk to."

    It is sad but how many people can say they lived to be 96 years old.

    R.I.P. Mr. Young.

    Same here i use to watch Mr Ed on reruns in the 80s as a kid every afternoon and dug it with Ducktales, he was a talented actor.

    He was also in The Great Mouse Detective as Mr Flaversham, remember? i saw that in theaters 30 years ago and dug the movie as his voice was fantastic even as Scrooge.

    R.I.P. Like others, I was a big fan of DuckTales and watched repeats of Mr. Ed on Nick when younger.

    George and Gracie are awesome. I didn't know (or remember) that Alan Young did Ducktales. That's cool.

    He was also Mr Frump in that episode of Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends and also Mr Flaversham in Great Mouse Detective too remember?

    Ditto here on being a Ducktales fan.

    It was quite a distinctive voice.

    Thank you sir.
