    That's sad. The man lived his dream but made the wrong choices in life.

    His body was donated to medical science but when Disney found out, they bought his body and gave him a proper burial.

    How very sad that people don't remember who he was. Thank you for posting the video.

    Re: This just makes me weep...

    I knew about this and I too weep. People are so clueless and how quickly most forget. I think every Disney Movie Fan knows that name, and if they don't they should be ashamed. I have a few CD's of Cliff Edwards that are remakes of some of his original records. He had an amazing voice.

    Same thing happened with young Bobby Driscoll. As a child he was in "Song of the South", "So Dear To My Heart", "Treasure Island" and was the voice and model for "Peter Pan". He too, and at a much younger age, became addicted and died unknown and alone in an alley and was buried in an unmarked paupers grave until someone at Disney who was trying to track him down, found out, checked it out, notified the family and paid for a decent burial in a proper cemetery. He too lived his life and made his own decisions, but it is a shame nonetheless.

    Thank You Poisonedapples

    In 2000 he was inducted as a Disney Legend. In referring to his death, they kindly leave out the part about his being indignant.

    Why don't we leave out the part about him being "indignant" (angry, annoyed, offended, 'in a huff', 'up in arms'...), and just refer to him being 'indigent' (penniless, impoverished, destitute) OK?

    Thank you for posting the 'Ukelele Ike' video; he was once one of the contract players at MGM - brought into the studio at the time of the Transition to Talkies; one of the original 'crooners' in the style of Rudy Vallee and Bing Crosby - and of course, our beloved Jimminy Cricket, Pinnochio's Consience...
