The Man Behind The Lucky Charms Leprechaun Voice Has Died
Who among us hasn't heard this voice and wished we had a huge, delicious, sugary bowl of Lucky Charms cereal in front of us as we watched Saturday morning cartoons in our jammies? Well, just like Saturday morning cartoons, the man behind the voice of the Lucky Charms leprechaun is gone.
Arthur Anderson voiced Lucky the Leprechaun for 30 years. His voice is the one you've been hearing say, 'Pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars and green clovers. They're always after me Lucky Charms! Frosted Lucky Charms — they're magically delicious.' He was 93 when he passed away this weekend. Oddly enough, the man best known for being an animated leprechaun, wasn't Irish. He was born in New York state, and his parents were from Denmark and England.
I'll bet you think that he got a lot of free Lucky Charms, but it turns out he didn't. Anderson once said, 'I never got free cereal, but they gave me lots of green money.'
Rest in peace, Arthur Anderson. We'll pour out a bowl of Lucky Charms for you this Saturday morning.
