Walter Cronkite Signs Off One Last Time

Look up news anchor in the dictionary and there’s a photo of Walter Cronkite. He died today at the age of 92. Known as the most trusted man in America Walter Cronkite guided the country through many difficult times. But he also had a lighter side that he showed in his friendship with Walt Disney and later as narrator in a few Disney attractions at Walt Disney World.

He was the narrator of Spaceship Earth from 1986 to 1994. He also appeared and narrated “Back To Neverland” a film about animation featuring the talents of Robin Williams and Disney’s Animators that was shown in Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World.

As a tribute to Uncle Walter here’s a quick clip from that film.
