Remembering DICK aka DICKIE JONES...
Dick Jones (also known as Dickie Jones when he voiced Pinocchio in the 1940 animated classic) has died at 87. He helped make Pinocchio my favorite Disney cartoon as well as playing two of my childhood cowboy heroes on TV, Dick West (The Range Rider's sidekick) and Buffalo Bill Jr.
At left are Dickie and Ukulele Ike (Cliff Edwards), voicing Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket.
