Your Favorite Childhood Cartoons Are Getting Older

Andrew Taruso - Donald Duck

I hate to be the guy who constantly points out how old I’m getting, especially since I’m a firm believer that age is nothing but a number and as long as you don’t act your age you’ll never grow old. (I have similar feelings about weight and blood alcohol level, but that’s another story).

Definitive Roles

Chewie & Han
