Charlie Callas 1924-2011

Legendary comic actor Charlie Callas has died at age 86. He was, perhaps, best known as the voice of Pete's Dragon.

Charlie Callas was briefly mentioned on Ken P. D. Snydecast #164: Every Day’s A Holly-Day and Ken and Dana have spoken multiple times about their interest in Pete's Dragon.

Please take a look at some of these clips of Charlie Callas in action:

Of note Callas, who is awesome only did half the voice of Pete's dragon,the more "talking type stuff" was candy Candido who also did tons of stuff for disney, including the indian chief in peter pan.

A sad day to lose CC!

this is the first time I ever actually got a piece of news from the snydecast. I didn't know he died till I looked up here.

I never knew that two actors voiced Elliot! It actually makes sense now that I think of it, but I never heard that before.
