Another loss: Norman Alden, voice of Aquaman

Last night, on the heels of hearing about RG Armstrong having died, I heard another legend has left us.

Norman Alden, also a prolific character actor, also died on Friday. Alden has 237 credits listed on IMDb. Incredible body of work. The roles I know him for are as Professor Frank Heflin on The Krofft Supershow Electra Woman and Dyna Girl and as Bill in Tim Burton's Ed Wood

But he will forever and always be the voice of Aquaman, from the 70s Super Friends cartoon. He epitomized the character for so many kids.

Check out a tribute post at The Aquaman Shrine for more information.

Thank you for everything, Mr. Alden.


  1. dude...that sucks...i love the krofft bros work...and def superfriends as well...

  2. Not a week goes by when I don't come across one of Mr. Alden's great performances on TV. He's been a familiar face ever since I was a kid. RIP Mr. Alden.
