What he brought to R2-D2 as a character was simply sublime.
No other actor could have done any justice to the role.

RIP.
I'm trying to get a copy of Time Bandits today. My kids have never seen it. I think I was seven when it came out and went into heavy rotation on HBO. Fidget was always my favorite. And Artoo...iconic.

That's sad he was an amazing R2-D2.

Lol Time Bandits was brilliant for its time.
