RIP, Paul Winchell and John Fiedler

You know it’s been a crummy weekend when CNN.com’s home page carries separate news stories about the deaths of Tigger and Piglet. (Although both Winchell and Fiedler deserve to be remembered for far more than Pooh, of course.)

Both gents will be missed. And as far as I’m concerned, they’re irreplacable–even though Disney obviously doesn’t agree.

  1. What amazed me was finding out that Paul Winchell had a patent on an artifical heart among other things! Sadly, as is true whenever a loved character dies, a ‘replacement’ is found instead of retiring the character, such as was with Kermit, Ernie and the others that Jim Henson performed.
