Alan Young

Many of you no doubt enjoyed Wayforward's recent take on the Ducktales IP with Ducktales: Remastered. Based on the popular cartoon starring the miserly old Scrooge McDuck, this remaster saw the return of almost the entire original voice cast including Alan Young, who came back to lend his voice to the starring character, Scrooge, despite being about 93 years old at the time.

Sadly, it's been recently reported that Alan Young has passed away at age 96. Young spent his final years at a retirement community, where he died of natural causes. Born in 1919, Young went on to pursue a successful multimedia career, appearing in radio shows, TV shows, and movies. He was perhaps most well-known for his role as Wilbur Post in the 1960's comedy show Mister Ed and, of course, for his voice acting efforts as Scrooge McDuck.

We'd like to express our condolences to the family of Mr. Young.
