RIP Mickey Rooney. He will be missed. Just lost another film legend.
Rooney had reportedly been in poor health in recent months.
Rooney’s TV credits included the eponymous The Mickey Rooney Show and Mickey, the voice of Kris Kringle in the classic Rankin/Bass animated specials Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town and The Year Without a Santa Claus, The New Adventures of the Black Stallion and the 1982 sitcom One of the Boys (opposite Dana Carvey and Nathan Lane).
He earned his Emmy for his lead role in the 1981 telepic Bill.
