Voice-over artist Bob Arbogast has passed away.

Mark Evanier writes of him:

"How to describe Arbogast? Bob Arbogast was a comedy writer, a radio personality, a voiceover specialist, a creator of funny commercials and a TV host...and even that doesn't begin to tell you who he was..... Among folks who do funny voiceovers, he was kind of a legend."

Arbogast did several voices for cartoon series, but also appeared in live action shows as well, including 'Mork And Mindy' and 'Mathnet'. And he also was a writer for 'The Nut House', a live-action pilot by Jay Ward.

Bob Arbogast's most famous Tooniverse character would probably be General G.I. Brassbottom of 'Roger Ramjet'.
