He died soon after and would be replaced by Henry Corden. Corden died in 2005 and was replaced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor (who, according to the documentary, ''Film/IKnowThatVoice''[[note]]centered on the past and present voice actors a lot of cartoon, anime, and video game fans are familiar with, like Creator/JohnDiMaggio, Creator/MelBlanc, Creator/JimCummings, Creator/TressMacNeille, Creator/CharlieAdler, Creator/CarlosAlazraqui, Creator/CreeSummer, Creator/TaraStrong, Creator/TomKenny and Music/GreyDeLisle[[/note]], almost wasn't chosen because he didn't look like someone who'd be able to do an accurate Fred Flintstone impression. Henry Corden urged the producers to give Taylor a chance, and that's how he was picked).
