    This one's quite late, but I thought it would be worth mentioning nonetheless.

    Hanna Barbera voice actor Doug Young passed away on January 7th this year, aged 98. Best known for voicing Doggie Daddy, he also portrayed Ding-a-Ling Wolf, Yippee, and The Flintstones' Grand Poobah, not to mention impressions of celebrities like Jimmy Durante and Buddy Hackett.

    Is it just me or do voice actors seem to have incredibly long lifespans? Maybe that's the career we all should shoot for.

    As with anything, it depends. Some certainly do live a long life, but then you have people like Mike Kleinhenz, who was only 56 when he died.

    That's really sad. I loved watching the Augie and Doggy Daddy shorts/episodes when they came on CN. I'll definitely be adding them to my extensive DVD/Blu-ray collection.

    RIP. I just might break out into tears right now, that was an awesome cartoon.
