A titan in the world of voice acting, Chuck McCann was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1934. He began applying his talents regionally with appearances on local kids TV and radio shows before landing his own children's series, "The Chuck McCann Show" (WPIX-TV, 1963), which broadcast in the New York area beginning in 1963. McCann also branched into straight acting, memorably appearing with Alan Arkin in the film "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" (1968). He also landed some of the most prominent commercial work of the 1960s, providing the voice of Sonny the Cuckoo Bird, the cartoon mascot who appeared in commercials for General Mills' Coco Puffs cereal from 1962 to 1978. All the while, McCann continued to voice act in a revolving array of animated series from "Space Stars" (NBC, 1981-1982) to "Pac-Man" (ABC, 1982-1984), to "G.I. Joe" (syndicated, 1985-1986). He even provided the voices of Burger Beagle and Duckworth on the popular series "DuckTales" (syndicated, 1987-1990) for an impressive 56 episodes. McCann also continued his on-camera acting career, playing Kris Kringle on the daytime soap opera "Santa Barbara" (NBC, 1984-1993) and later taking on the recurring role of Judge Byron Fudd on the acclaimed series "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-08). Chuck McCann passed away in 2018. He was 83 years old.
