R.I.P. Wayne Allwine

For those who hadn't heard, Wayne Allwine - the voice of Mickey Mouse passed away yesterday.

Wayne started doing the voice of Mickey back in 1977, taking over the role from Jimmy MacDonald, becoming the third person to supply the voice (after Walt Disney, and later MacDonald). As of 2009 Wayne had been the voice actor for the character longer than anyone else, and was officially inducted into the Disney Legends Program in 2008.

Thanks to the folks at Disney Blog for a very moving and informative tribute to Mr. Allwine.
