LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dick Jones, the voice of Pinocchio in the classic 1940 Walt Disney cartoon, has died. He was 87.
His son Rick Jones tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1o7Wv59 ) his father died Monday after a fall at home. The cause hasn't been determined.
Dick Jones was just 10 years old but already had appeared in nearly 40
when he got the part of Pinocchio.
The son of a Texas newspaper editor, he learned to ride and rope from an early age and had a Western show career by age 4.
Other roles included Henry Aldrich on the radio show "The Aldrich Family," and parts in movies such as "Destry Rides Again" and "Stella Dallas." In the 1950s he had roles in
Westerns, including the lead in "Buffalo Bill, Jr."
