    Ricardo Montalban has passed.

    I just read that Ricardo Montalban has passed on. While many love him for his role as Khan on Star Trek, I really liked his voice work on Kim Possible and Freakazoid.

    Here is a link to Harry Knowles Obituary on Aint it Cool News.

    My favorite passage from Freakzoid involving Guitierrez.

    Guitierrez: [Guitierrez tries to find Freakazoid's weakness, he pulls a green rock out of his cloak] Behold, the purest Kryptonite. Are you feeling weak, my friend, oh so weak?
    Freakazoid: That's Superman's weakness, not mine!
    Guitierrez: Really?
    Freakazoid: Yeah, duuuuuuhhh!
    Guitierrez: [pulls out a yellow pad of paper, and holds it in front of Freakazoid's face] Oh, that stupid man at the store! Then how about this! Does the yellow hurt your eyes, my friend? Feeling weak, oh so very weak?
    Freakazoid: That's Green Lantern!
    Guitierrez: Oh, shoot!
    [throws it down, picks up a glass of water and throws it in Freakazoid's face]
    Guitierrez: Then how 'bout some... water in your face! Are you meling, melting, my friend?
    Freakazoid: That's the Wicked Witch!
    Guitierrez: Oh, we're wasting time. What is your weakness?
    Freakazoid: Well...
    [quick cut to Freakazoid in a cage]
    Freakazoid: [to self] Dumb, dumb, dumb! Never tell the villian how to trap you in a cage!
    Guitierrez: You probably shouldn't have helped us build it, either.
    Freakazoid: I know. Dumb!
    Guitierrez: So... graphite bars charged with negative ions. That is your weakness, eh?
    Freakazoid: That, or poo gas.
    Guitierrez: You know, it's a funny thing. Nobody likes poo gas, my friend. Blagh!

    His voice, oh my gosh, awesomeness! And yes, he did play one of the best villains in recent memory in Khan. Also, he have to remember, he did much for the Latino community with his powerful presence and abilities.

    He was pretty cool, frankly.

    And because of that...he will be quite missed.

    Belcome To Fantasy Island Mr. Roarke.

    A true class act, and a tough man. He was hurt filming a movie back in the 60's and was in almost constant pain for the rest of his life due to a back injury. But he kept working.

    Even though I just watched it last month, I feel like watching Star Trek II again now.

    Re: Ricardo Montalban has passed.

    What can be said about an Icon. The man meant so much to so many that just trying to think of words that express the pain and sorrow this causes fans. This is a loss to the world not just Star Trek fans or TV fans. This man touched so many lives, mine included.

    I remember such classics as Kahn from Star Trek (an obvious one but still important), as Melonballer said Guitierrez from Freakazoid, His commercials about the Cordoba ( YouTube - 1975 Chrysler Cordoba ) Funny story about that......He made up the Leaters name. And his countless TV Cameos, Columbo: A Matter of Honor as Luis Montoya, or Chato in Gunsmoke, Alex Pareno in Hawaii-five-o, or his classic roll as Vincent Ludwig in Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad. I know that I will miss him emmensely.

    I leave you with a quote from Levar Burton only utter no more than 3 hours ago on twitter: "levarburton: Ricardo Montalban! God Bless his Soul... I hope they line his coffin in "rich, Corinthian leather...!" "
