Obituary: Dick Beals

Voice actor Dick Beals (b.1927) died on May 29. Beals suffered from a glandular condition which resulted in having a very young sounding voice, allowing him to provide voice work as a child well into his 70s. His most famous character may be Speedy, the Alka-Seltzer mascot, but he also voiced Baby-Faced Moonbeam in Duck Dodgers, the title character on Gumby, and various voices on Roger Ramjet, The Jetsons, The Flintstones, and other cartoons.
