R.I.P. Zippy... :-(

Earlier today I saw the news that actor and voice-artist Roy Skelton had died at the age of 79.

As well as providing the voice of the Daleks in Doctor Who during the Seventies and Eighties, Roy was perhaps most well-known for being the voice of the characters of Zippy and George in the children's television programme Rainbow.

I liked watching Rainbow when I was a kid...


  1. I wish I was Zippy. Or either Bert or Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.
