R.I.P. Yukon Cornelius

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Tue, Jan 7, 2014 at 10:14 AM

Larry D. Mann—best known as the voice of pick-axe licking gold miner Yukon Cornelius in the 1964 classic animated special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer—has passed away at the age of 91. From AP:

Beginning in the 1950s, the Canadian-born Mann had small roles in movies, including "The Sting" and "In the Heat of the Night."

On TV, his appearances included "Gunsmoke," "Bewitched" and Hill Street Blues."

He also did voice work for animated shows, including 1964's "Rudolph."

Here's Yukon in glorious action. (Death may have taken him, but the Bumble never stood a chance.)
