I used to watch R&B & DDR but don't recall CR. I got a kick out of Boris & Natasha. I used to try to mimic their accents. R.I.P., Alex. Thanks for the update, Guy.

I was trying to think of some witty Rocky and Bulwinkle-esque line to honor him, but nothing comes to mind. ;< RIP

Dudley Do Right was epic!  Crusader Rabbit wasn't bad.  I never really cared much for Rocky & Bulwinkle.

This sucks, but, to be honest, I thought he was already dead.  Maybe I'm thinking of someone else...

So he just worked with Jay Ward, and had no part of the Post cereal early morning TV shows back in the 60s I watched as a kindergartner? Sugar Bear, George of the Jungle, been far too long.

Roger Ramjet, Underdog, and another one ( I forget the name) Tom Terrific maybe?, that will never be on air in its original form as the hero took drugs to be super.

Anyway, this man did ground breaking work. It will never be repeated.
Have Fun

The creator of Rocky and Bullwinkle is gone, oh man bummer. I've seen the Rocky and Bullwinkle show I really liked it. As i recall it was the Simpssons of it's day.
