Garfield is silenced...

From the AP wire:

Lorenzo Music, who provided the distinctive voice of ``Garfield'' the cartoon cat and worked on television series including ``The Bob Newhart Show'' and ``Rhoda,'' has died. He was 64.

Music died at his home Saturday of lung cancer that had spread throughout his body. He worked until about a month ago, when he recorded Garfield's voice for an automobile advertisement, said his wife, Henrietta.

...Music went on to work full time as a voice actor, portraying several cartoon characters and eventually voicing ``Garfield'' in prime-time animated specials and for a Saturday morning series that aired for seven years.

A moment of silence, if you would, for one of the most recognizable voices in cartoon history. Somewhere, Odie is howling in sorrow.
