Actor/director/writer Lennie Weinrib, an ubiquituous presence in cartoons of the 1970's (including many DePatie-Freleng productions) and a featured actor on several Krofft television shows, has died at a hospital near his home in Chile at the age of 71. Mark Evanier has more details and stories about this remarkable performer on his blog.
We try desperately to steer away from blogs that take excessive liberties with language as I am, after all, a teacher of very small children who should not be exposed to bad language. A bad word once in a while isn't going to kill an otherwise entertaining blog. However, should one of these blogs ever turn into a filth-fest, it will be removed... and it has happened in some cases. Just be warned, fellow bloggers. Language originating from this blog will be always on the safe side. Thanks... --DM
