ANIMANIACS: The Voice of God

God is not dead.  But the voice of God in two Animaniacs segments has passed away.  

Stage and television actor Malachi Throne, who provided the rich and resonant voice of God in both the Slappy Squirrel cartoon "Guardin' the Garden" and the Hip Hippo segment "Noah's Lark," passed away on March 13 at the age of 84.  

Mr. Throne's acting career spanned 60 years and he appeared in over 100 TV series, including the original "Batman," "Star Trek," "The Outer Limits"...

The Hip Hippos attempt to board "Noah's Lark." 

..."Hogan's Heroes," "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,"  "I Spy," "The Wild Wild West,"  "Mannix," "Mission: Impossible," "Hawaii Five-O"...


..."The Rockford Files," and "Law and Order," to name just a few, and he had recurring roles on "Ben Casey" and "To Catch A Thief."  

                                               God bless you, Mr. Throne.
