"Ta-Ta For Now", Mr. Winchell

Who patented an artificial heart in 1963?

How about a disposable razor?  Or invisible garter belt?  Or a flameless cigarette lighter?

It was the same man as was the voice for Tigger in Winnie the Pooh.  Tigger is known for his jovial parting phrase, ta-ta for now.  Paul Winchell applied the tag line, borrowing it from his british wife's repetoire.

Disney's Tigger Winchell voiced Disney's Tigger from 1968 to 1999
Paul Winchell did many things in his life.  Surprising that he had accomplished such a wide variety of noteworthy feats.  It is sad to say, he passed away, at age 82, today.
