LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former Disney head Mouseketeer and voice actress Ginny Tyler has died in Washington state at age 86.
Her son Ty Fenton tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/LFu5v0 ) that Tyler died of natural causes July 13 at a nursing home in Issaquah, Wash.
When episodes of television's "The Mickey Mouse Club" were repackaged for syndication in 1963, Tyler became the head Mouseketeer who hosted new segments of the TV show that were woven around the old.
Tyler was the voice on the records "Bambi" and "Babes in Toyland."
She also was the voice of Polynesia the Parrot, who helped teach Rex Harrison to talk to the animals in the movie "Dr. Dolittle." And she sang the parts of barnyard animals in "Mary Poppins."
