I have a large collection of voice over Disney/Pixar autographs. I have most of the cast from Lion King, Monsters Inc, Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast. My hardest person to find, so far, has been Robbie Benson. But I did track him down and sent him a photo to sign. I have Disney animators autographs, also many Pixar related autographs too. Most of the Pixar guys draw/sketch a little drawing along with their autograph. Always looking for up to date addresses or more names for my collection. If you are a serious collector and would like to talk more just let me know. Would love to share what I have and what I would like to add to my collection.

Welcome aboard! I will certainly get in touch. I tried tracking Benson down to two work addresses and I think I tried reaching him on LinkedIn, but have yet to find him. Congratulations on that!

That guy's been hiding out on me. I had trouble with Austin Pendleton, too, because I wanted him for my Finding Nemo collection. couldn't reach himn through his day job at a school here in Manhattan, but I got him later on, happily.

Wanted to share today's success from Tony Baxter, to show you all what I have been sending out to the Disney Legends. I currently have 44 signed certificates, with two in the mail which I hope to receive back some day.

45 Disney Legends certificates! Latest one came in from Ruthie Tompson, who besides working on Walt's multi-plane camera, was also an inker on every animated feature from Snow White to The Rescuers. Quite the legacy with Disney.

Last weekend, I met the Dreamfinder. No, not the local high school kid who's playing the Dreamfinder in Epcot this week. I mean the voice of the original Dreamfinder from the old attraction. While signing an autograph, he slipped into the voice and recited a few lines.. Really took me back![IMG][/IMG]

Thanks! He was at the Chiller Theater convention here on the east coast. He played lots of characters in cartoons, and I was happy to learn he was Dreamfinder as well. Would love to have gotten Billy Barty as Figment before he died (loved him in 'Night Patrol', but I didn't know it was him before he passed.

I currently have certificates out to D1ck Nunis (might even have that one back... have to check), and Alice Davis (who refuses to reply, it seems... sent two out). Missed out on getting Paige O'Hara to sign the certificate on the day I met the Dreamfinder, Chuck McCann.

I had mailed certificates to Roy Disney, Fess Parker, and Rue McClanahan weeks or even days before each of them passed. I also sent one to Wally Boag, whose son wrote back to say that his dad was in the advanced stages of Alzheimers Disease. But he was so touched that I wrote to his dad that he sent me an autographed book... one that his dad signed before he got too ill to write. It's a treasured piece of my collection.

There aren't many others I can write to, since most are dead and others are difficult to hunt down. I'm going to mail out a certificate to Blaine Gibson today. Fingers crossed!

The Dreamfinder picture was printed on 8x11 photo paper. The Legends Certificate I created is also 8x11, though I use resume-type paper (not sure what the parchment would be considered). Here's the layout I've used for everyone (the Robin Williams one was resized, but it's still a full sheet of paper:

During a slow moment at work, I just hunted down three more names. Will try to get them into the mail this week. Gibson's leaves today
