Leave a comment

In sad news, famous animator and voice actor, Bud Luckey, has passed away at the age of 83. Mr. Luckey (1934-2018) was probably best known for his work at Pixar working as a character designer for many films including Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., Cars, and The Incredibles. He even directed, wrote, composed, and performed the 2004 Pixar short, Boundin’.

His voicework includes the roles of Rick Dicker in The Incredibles,

Chuckles the Clown in Toy Story 3,

and Eeyore in the 2011 Disney film, Winnie the Pooh.

He also worked on many animated segments for Sesame Street including my personal favorite, The Alligator King.

He shall be missed!

Today, we take a look at the 2014 film, Big Hero 6. I won’t go over the plot or my thoughts of the film here as I’ve done that already, so let’s go straight into the forgotten/minor character for this film: the General.
