  1. joecab says:

    So for Bea Arthur you had to go with the Star Wars Christmas Special? Ha! :)

  2. Tony Thomas says:

    Very touching to see them listed all in one place. I was especially saddened by the death of Ric Estrada on a personal level, as he had been very kind to me at the 2003 San Diego Comic-Con.

    One note: I believe the Lost in Space B-9 Robot actor was Bob May, not John May.

  3. Meemaw Bootz says:

    Nobody seems particularly worked up over John Keel dropping.

  4. Horace Austin says:

    Dan O’Bannon left us in December. He wrote the screenplays for ALIEN and TOTAL RECALL.

  5. I never knew test died.

  6. Old school wrestler Steve “Dr. Death” Williams passed away the other day to Cancer as well

  7. Tom Spurgeon says:

    That’s Jean Anderson’s work, not Anne Cleveland’s. It doesn’t even look like Anne Cleveland’s work.

  8. Farrah Fawcett’s death really was lost in the shadow of Michael Jackson’s.

  9. In fact, it was lost from this list entirely. Tsk tsk, Heidi.

  10. Steven Rowe says:

    the Alvin comic book drawing attributed to Irv Tripp, seems to be the work of Bill Williams.

  11. bad wolf says:

    …and my resolution to stop thinking Spurgeon just comments to be relentlessly critical is broken already.

  12. Ingoschi says:

    What about Roy E. Disney?

  13. Patrick says:

    Thanks for the tributes. One note regarding Roy Disney. The image being used is a statue of his father, Roy O. Disney, who passed away in the early 70s.

  14. A tough year for the entertainment industries…

    This and other such lists have certainly given me pause and brought me face to face with my own mortality.

    I will certainly cherish each day just a little more in 2010…

  15. Darci says:

    I can’t believe you omitted Shel Dorf and Ken Krueger!

  16. Darci – they’re there. You didn’t click on to read the rest of this story link.
