When I was a kid, I loved the cartoon Top Cat. I’m not sure why. Maybe it was the cool music or the fact it was set in New York City. I also really loved Top Cat’s voice.
Arnold Stang, the voice of the clever feline, died earlier this week at the age of 91. Stang was in 75 gazillion TV shows and movies over the years (you’d know the face and/or the voice even if you couldn’t place the name), including The Jonathan Winters Show, Broadside, Batman, Bonanza, The Red Skelton Show, December Bride, The Steve Allen Show, The Milton Berle Show, Emergency, and Mathnet.
He was also in several movies, including Hercules in New York, Dennis The Menace, and It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. He was also the original voice of Buzz Bee in Honey-Nut Cheerios commercials.
After the jump, an episode of Top Cat.
