Happy Birthday and RIP Sterling Holloway!

I agree with BlankSlate, he had a very nice mellow and pleasant voice especially as one of my favourite characters ever. Winnie The Pooh. While I prefer Jim Cummings slightly bit more as Pooh, Sterling did originate the role (The Disney version) and laid the ground work for this silly old bear and all future portrayals.

He was also excellent as Mr. Stork, The Cheshire Cat and especially at massively playing against type as Kaa.

Only Role of Holloway that Cummings hasn't done so far is Roquefort the Mouse.

Where are his fans??? Anyway, his best roles were Kaa & Cheshire Cat and he was the original voice of Pooh. Jim Cummings does a lot of his roles now including the ones I mentioned. Was he Jim's inspiration to become a voice actor because it sure sounds like it? In words, this guy was great. RIP Sterling.
