2003 Wayne AllwineEdit
Wayne Allwine started in the Disney mail room in 1966. Soon he found himself working alongside Disney’s sound effects wizard, Jimmy MacDonald, with whom he apprenticed for eight years. During his tenure at the Studio, he learned foley walking/sound design and sound effects dialogue editing. He used those skills for several movies and television shows (winning an Emmy for his work on Amazing Stories), including Disney’s The Fox and the Hound. But Wayne is best known as the third man to voice Mickey Mouse, a job he held for 32 years until his untimely death in 2009. In addition to all of Mickey’s film and television appearances, Wayne voiced Mickey for CDs, computer games, talking wrist watches, talking books, toys and much more. He can be heard in all the Disney theme parks, on the Disney Cruise Line and in morning wake-up calls at Disney resorts.
