A Sad Time for the Hundred Acre Woods

In a sad coincidence, both Paul Winchell (the voice of Tigger) and John Fiedler (the voice of Piglet) died over the weekend.

Paul Winchell got his start doing imitations of the ventriloquist Edgar Bergen. As Tigger, he introduced the tag line "Ta ta for now" (since shortened to TTFN).

Walt Disney had John Fiedler pegged as Piglet as soon as he heard Fiedler's performance as a conscientious (and high-voiced) juror in "Twelve Angry Men".

Ta ta for now, guys. You'll be missed.
