"From Voice Actors in the News: RIP Eddie Carroll, 1933-2010

The International Jack Benny Fan Club is reporting that Eddie Carroll, voice of iconic Disney character Jiminy Cricket since 1973, has passed away at the age of 76. Carroll assumed the role after the death of Cliff Edwards in 1971 and had voiced the famous cricket for all manner of Disney media over the course of nearly 40 years, including the Kingdom Hearts video game series. And up until a recent injury which appears to have resulted in the cause of his death, Carroll had been performing the critically-acclaimed one-man tribute stage show Jack Benny: Laughter in Bloom. I received the following message from Laura Leff, president of The International Jack Benny Fan Club, on the morning of Tuesday, April 6th: Eddie Carroll passed away about an hour ago. Today is also his and Carolyn’s wedding anniversary–47 years. And I read Eddie all the well-wishes that I had received up to about 10PM Pacific Time last night, so he knew that you were thinking of him. There is a story told by one of the help at Jack’s house that shortly before he passed away, he woke up and said that he had been talking with Lyman Woods (his second vaudeville partner). Jack said that Lyman had shown him the afterlife, and that it was “beautiful”. I’m sure many of us will want to envision Jack helping Eddie to make his exit to our standing ovation. –Laura Leff President, IJBFC www.jackbenny.org"

You're terrified, aren't you?

We're gonna miss you, Eddie.

Dans-Crownblue.png I always loved hearing the voice of Jiminy Cricket as the motivating conscience in many films, We'll all miss you, Eddie.

I know that if I'm wishing on a star, your going to be smiling back at me. Rest in peace Eddie. This is just tragic, this is like the second Disney voice actor to die in the Kingdom Hearts series, you all remember Wane Aliwine, right? Man, I hope this series doesn't become some sort of a jinx that will freak out any other Disney voice actors out there. Well, both Wane's and Eddie's memories won't be in vain, new voices will be found, Mickey already has Bret Ewin, so I'm sure there's someone out there who can inherit the role of Jiminy. For now, let's keep wishing upon those stars (I hope this talk box works). - AROS 12:33, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

TerraCharm.png I loved Eddie Carroll's work as everyone's favorite cricket. I suggest the Wiki honor him the same way we did Wayne Allwine. Thoughts?
