Paul Wilchin 
      American ventriloquist and voice-over artist (b. Dec. 21, 1922, New York, N.Y.—d. June 24, 2005, Moorpark, Calif.), was a familiar presence on television in the 1950s and '60s, appearing first with his wisecracking dummy Jerry Mahoney and later adding the dim-witted puppet Knucklehead Smiff to his act. Beginning in 1968, however, he gained additional renown as the voice of characters in film and television animations, especially Tigger in Winnie-the-Pooh cartoons, which he voiced until 1999. Winchell also achieved notable success as an inventor, with some 30 patents to his credit.
