Peanuts animator, and voice of Snoopy, Bill Melendez, dies at 91

Sadly, the producer/animator who brought us such classics as “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” has passed away at 91, of natural causes.

He was also the very familiar voice of Snoopy in many of these specials, though the “voice” was a series of barks, growls, and squeaks.  He also did the voice of Woodstock in many of the specials.

He will be missed!
