– Admiral Ackbar, Return of the Jedi

Today we celebrate Tim Rose at his 59th birthday (born 1956)

Tim Rose was born in Pittsfield, USA and played Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi. He was a puppeteer and also created Salacious B. Crumb and Sy Snottles. Here is his story in his own words.

Tim Rose was the puppeteers but…

… the voice actor Erik Bauersfield did the voice of Admiral Ackbar, and of Bib Fortuna.

… the voice actor Mark Dodson did the voice of Salacious Crumb.

… the Lapti Nek song in Huttese was created and performed by Annie Arbogast. In the Special Edition of Return of the Jedi this song is replaced by “Jedi Rocks”.

Admiral Ackbar is a veteran commander in the Rebel cruiser assault of the Battle of Endor.

Salacious B. Crumb is the pet of Jabba the Hutt.

Sy Snootles is the long limbed singer and dancer at Jabba the Hutts Court.
