He had a long run. I thought he was a vampire. RIP to a funny man. He was always fully in character, so his humor seemed believable and silly at the same time.

I didn't know he was in Disney and Pixar's Wall-E, at first.

Good movie though.

Although I haven't seen the rest of it yet.

WALL-E is on Disney Plus, by the way.

Years ago, both my mom and my nephew watches WALL-E on TV.
RIP,... but I hope it wasn't the China virus and Yes China virus came from China and CNN help to lie for China as did WHO too and China still lieing today and Mike Bloomberg has most of his stocks in China.
