Rooney in Peace

Iconic child star and Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney has died at 93, leaving behind a tremendous legacy yet to be matched by any other performer. The diminutive actor was known for his not-so-diminutive body of work, which includes hundreds of films and shorts.

Here’s a clip of his Oscar-nominated turn in Babes in Arms, where he starred with the ill-fated Judy Garland:

Oh, and who remembers this bit from The Simpsons?

Rooney is the second legendary child star to pass away within the last couple of months: Shirley Temple boarded the Good Ship Lollipop towards the Great Beyond last February.

Rest in peace.
