The end of the year gives us cause for celebration, but it’s also a chance to look back and remember those who have passed away. Recently, the animation community lost two such artists: stop-motion animator Wah Chang (Oscar winner for special effects on George Pal’s The Time Machine and contributor to animated sequences in other Pal features), and voice actor Les Tremayne (heard in many of Chuck Jones’ Tower 12 productions, including The Phantom Tollbooth). The Big Cartoon Database has biog pages dedicated to both Wah Chang, who died aged 86, and Les Tremayne, who was 90 years old.
