Nov 19: Wilbur!

On this day in 1919, actor Alan Young was born Angus Young in Northern England. Best known to TV fans as Wilbur Post on the classic 1960s series Mr. Ed, Young is the voice of Disney's Uncle Scrooge McDuck! He can be heard in such features as Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas, Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas, and various TV episodes of House of Mouse & Duck Tales. Young also voiced Hiram Flaversham in the animated The Great Mouse Detective and appeared as Dr. Wenger in the live-action The Cat from Outer Space. (Sci-fi fans may recall him for his role in the 1960 feature The Time Machine.)
