Arnold Stang -- In Memoriam

The man who was Top Cat has died at ninety-one. And as writer Mark Evanier says:

... Arnold had an amazing career in radio, movies and TV and on the stage. He was in one of my favorite movies, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and he was the lead voice on one of my favorite cartoon shows when I was a kid, Top Cat. In animation, he was also the voice of Herman the Mouse in the old Herman and Katnip cartoons, and he was heard in other animation projects and in hundreds of commercials. He was, for example, the original voice of the Bee in the Honey Nut Cheerios ads ...

Writer, television host and TAG Vice President Earl Kress talk to Arnold about his long career in 2008.

May God speed you to your rest, Mr. Stang.
