Ventriloquist Paul Winchell Dies

Back in May, I mentioned famed ventriloquist and inventor Paul Winchell, most noted by people in this day and age as the voice of “Tigger” on Winnie the Pooh cartoons.

I learned from a private source today, that Paul passed away Thursday morning. An obituary is planned by the family on Monday in the Los Angeles Times.

My condolences go to his family and my admiration for Paul is great. I have a few videos in my collection of Paul’s work.

A Google search using Paul’s name and the Three Stooges should reveal a Stooge compilation movie featuring Paul and his ventriloquist figure, Jerry Mahoney; for those interested in seeing Paul in action.

Paul’s website is linked in my previous article on Paul linked above.

From what I have read of Paul’s life, he was a man not always at peace with himself and lived a very difficult early childhood.

I hope he has found his peace now…Rest well, Paul.
