US actor Arnold Stang, who voiced the lead character in 1960s television cartoon Top Cat, has died aged 91.

Stang died of pneumonia at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Massachusetts on Sunday, JoAnne Stang, his wife of 60 years, said.

Known for his distinctive nasal voice and nerdy looks, the actor also starred alongside Frank Sinatra in 1955 film The Man with the Golden Arm.

He also appeared in 1963 comedy It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

Stang started his career on the radio as a teenager and played alongside Milton Berle on radio and TV in the 1950s.

He spent a lot of his career voicing cartoons and dozens of advertisements, and also made appearances on US TV shows including The Cosby Show and Batman.

His last big screen role was in 1993 movie Dennis the Menace.

should we have another sub section, titled obituary?

announcements of death shouldn't come under "entertainment", should it?!

That's so sad, he was a great actor. I wonder how he's been in recent years. I hope I make it all the way to 91 years old!!

He had a good role as a mummy in an episode one of those suspense TV series in the 80s or 90s.

His voice was so distinctive. He was perfect as TC.
