Comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who has one of the most recognisable voices in Hollywood, has passed away. He was 67.

Gottfried was known for his crude humour, political incorrectness and shrill voice, which helped give life to several animated characters, such as Iago the parrot in Disney's 'Aladdin', the robotic bird Digit in PBS Kids' 'Cyberchase' and the Aflac duck in commercials for the insurance company.
