RIP Larry D. Mann [Voice of Yukon Cornelius]

He was everywhere in bit parts in the 1960s and 1970s, but his most noteworthy role is probably the voice of Yukon. Story (not that there’s much to it, other than he has died.

He was also a regular on Canadian television - most Canucks would remember him from “Wayne and Shuster” and the Bell ads that he did in the 1980s. Here’s the CBC obit, which expands a bit from the MSNBC one.

May he rest in peace.

A quick search shows he was in The Sting. Who was he in The Sting? I wondered.

The Conductor (“That’ll get you first alternate, sir!”)

I probably saw him in a lot of things, but I don’t think I’d have recognized him. He seems to have done a lot of voice work (including voicing The Tin Man for cartoons. Twice.)

Oh…the grapplegrummits guy!

A line that will live in my heart forever. RIP Mr. Mann.

When I was a kid, I was watching the the 1960s movie “The Perils of Pauline,” there’s a scene in it with some Middle Eastern prince (probably about 10 years old). I remember thinking to myself, “He sounds just like Rocky (the squirrel).”

40 years later, I get to watch it again on one of the cable outlets, and I find that there are a fair number of uncredited roles in it. In one scene the prince’s father is bellowing, and I remember thinking, “That’s Yukon Cornelius!” And, I was also right about the prince. June Foray supplied his dubbed voice.
