Voice of Mickey Mouse dead!

I terrible tragedy (for me at least) has happened. Wayne Allwine aka the voice of Mickey Mouse has died of complications to diabetes.

Quote:
Wayne Allwine, a Disney sound-effects technician who became the falsetto voice of Mickey Mouse in 1977, died Monday in Los Angeles at age 62 from complications related to diabetes. In a statement, Disney CEO Robert Iger said, "Wayne dedicated his entire professional life to Disney, and over the last 32 years, gave so much joy, happiness and comfort to so many around the world by giving voice to our most beloved, iconic character, Mickey Mouse." Allwine was the third person to provide Mickey's voice in films and TV shows -- the first, being Walt Disney himself, who did so from 1928 to 1947, when Jimmy McDonald, another Disney "sound designer," took over.
Who will take over Mickey Mouse's voice? Will it sound the same?

I can image a big African guy being his new voice... oh god, that would be so bad yet so funny.

He's the third voice of Mickey Mouse, they'll find a fourth.

Oh, man. This feels like Mel Blanc all over again.

Still, they don't use Mickey all that much since we're getting this new Disney channel bull**** in, and they might not consider Mickey Mouse and the gang the REAL people of Disney.

The apocolypse has begun...

This is almost as bad as when Jerry Orbach died. At least Wayne gave his performance for Mickey in Kingdom Hearts II.
