Legend Mickey Rooney Dies At 93

Legendary entertainer Mickey Rooney has passed away at 93.

Andy Hardy is rounding up the old gang in heaven to put on a great show!

Mickey Rooney, who spent nearly his entire life in the show business, died today. He was 93.

Rooney had been in ill health for quite some time.

He was one of the most famous child actors in entertainment history. He played the role of Andy Hardy in "The Hardy Boys" in 20 films.

Rooney also teamed up with Judy Garland for "Babes in Arms" which was a huge hit back in 1939.

He was the first teenager ever to be nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in "Strike Up the Band" in 1940.

In his later years, Rooney testified before Congress about elder abuse, including his own. Rooney is survived by his eighth wife, Jan, from whom he was separated at the time of his death and eight of his nine children and nineteen grandchildren. His son, actor Tim Rooney, preceded him in death in 2006.
