On January 14, 2009, the world lost a fine actor and one of the most recognizable voices ever.
We will never see a Fantasy Island, Mr. Roarke or the wrath of Khan Noonien Singh ever again.
In terms of cartoons, his voice gave life to Armando Gutierrez from Freakazoid, Vartkes from Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, El Encantador from Dora the Explorer, Senor Senior Sr. from Kim Possible, and his last great voice work, the Cow from Family Guy.
At least he will live on, in cartoons, as I know there are voice actors out there who will forever copy his signature voice.
RIP Ricardo Montalban
