As many of you know, we had lost the legendary Alan Young. Alan was well known as the voice of Scrooge McDuck in Mickey's Christmas Carol, the Ducktales animated series, and other Disney projects. He was also the voice of Mr. Flaversham the toy maker in the 1986 Disney film The Great Mouse Detective. Alan first started on radio and later in television as Wilbur Post, The owner of a talking horse named Mister Ed. He will be eternally missed. But he will never be forgotten.
