Two of gamings greatest sidekicks' real-life counterparts have passed away

12/4/13 5:00pm

For those of you who were fans of the 90's cartoon Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, you'll be disappointed to hear that voice actor for Miles "Tails" Prower has passed away. Christopher Evan Welch started his career in the role of Tails across 66 episodes. He'd go on to star in other series' and even Broadway, but to us he'll always be the two-tailed mechanic with a heart of gold.

This news follows the already terrible revelation that Danny Wells, the live-action Luigi on the The Super Mario Bros. Super Show also passed away four days ago. His passing follows Captain" Lou Albano in the title role of Mario, who died in 2009. So that's two sidekicks to some of gaming's biggest names, whose real-life counterparts have now passed on.

Sad day is sad.
