Robert Goulet, 1933 - 2007

By Steve Lee

Robert Goulet died yesterday (Tuesday, 10/30) in a Los Angeles hospital as he awaited a lung transplant. He was 73.

Goulet was born Nov. 26, 1933, in Massachusetts, and moved to Canada as a young teen where he became a singing star in the 1950s. He became a star on Broadway in 1960 after appearing as Sir Lancelot in Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s musical “Camelot.”

He would go on to dozens of other musicals, and many TV and film roles. Movie appearances included “Beetlejuice” and “The Naked Gun 2-1/2.” He was the singing voice of Wheezy the Penguin in “Toy Story 2” and the voice of Jaune-Tom the cat in “Gay Purr-ee” with Judy Garland.

Most recently, Goulet starred in a hilarious commercial for Emerald Nuts.
