A Sad Coincidence: Tigger And Piglet Die Within Days Of Each Other

In the Creepy Coincedence Department:
On Friday, June 24th, veteran ventriloquist and cartoon voice Paul Winchell died in his sleep in Los Angles at the age of 82.
On Saturday, June 25th, Film, TV, stage and voice actor John Fiedler died in New York City. He was 80 years old.
Why is that creepy, you ask?

Well, for many years, Winchell was the voice of Tigger in Walt Disney‘s Winnie the Pooh cartoons and Fiedler was the voice of Piglet. Eeeeeeerie, right?
You might remember Fidler as “Mr. Hengist” in the 1967 Star Trek Episode “Wolf in the Fold,” as juror#2 in 12 Angry Men and as Mr. Peterson in The Bob Newhart Show.
