Sad news. Mickey Rooney, one of the longest tenured movie actors in the industry died today at the age 93.
It says so right here in this article:www.tmz.com/2014/04/06/mickey-…
It's sad for me too. Because I first knew Mickey Rooney for portraying Santa Claus/Kris Kringle in the Rankin-Bass clay specials "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" "The Year Without a Santa Claus" "Ruldoph and Frosty's Christmas In July" and the recent sequel to TYWASA "A Miser Brothers Christmas". And he even did movies I knew like "Night at the Museum" "The Muppets" "The Fox and the Hound" and "Lady and the Tramp 2: Scamp's Adventure". I also learned about a rumour that Mickey Mouse was named after him.
We will miss you Mickey.
