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.

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.
