People born on November 26
Tina Turner (1938): Born Anna Marie Bullock in Brownsville, Texas, Turner was introduced to her future husband and musical partner, Ike Turner in 1959. Ike quickly took control of Tina and her career, as the two embarked on a successful 15-year run as the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. Behind Ike’s near-tyrannical leadership and Tina’s soulfoul voice, the pair recorded more than 25 top-ten hits, including “Proud Mary” and “River Deep Mountain High.” After a failed suicide attempt in 1975, Turner had enough of Ike’s treatment and left him. Tina worked nightclubs to minor success, before returning to the limelight in 1984 with the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning album, “Private Dancer”. In 1991, both Ike and Tina were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rich Little (1938): Canadian-born actor and impressionist whose many voices and faces include Richard Nixon and Johnny Carson. Little has appeared in or provided voices for more than 15 films, including Dirty Tricks, Better Off Dead, One Crazy Summer and Happy Hour. Little’s most recent roles were in 1996’s made-for-television movie, The Late Shift and 2001's The Brainiacs.com.

Robert Goulet (1933): Singer and actor who got his first big break when he appeared as Lancelot in the Lerner and Loewes’ production of Camelot on Broadway. The play produced a Grammy award and some hit songs for Goulet, including “If Ever I Would Leave You.” Goulet’s first starring role was in the 1964 film, Honeymoon Hotel. Unfortunately for Goulet, the film was not well received. That same year, Goulet turned to TV to star in his first special, “An hour with Robert Goulet”. In 1968, Goulet received a Best Actor Tony award for his role in the musical, Happy Time. Goulet was a regular on the Las Vegas circuit in the ‘70s, before finally returning to the stage to appear in a U.S. production of South Pacific. Some of Goulet’s more memorable film appearances include, Scrooged, Beetlejuice, The Naked Gun 2-1/2, and The Last Producer.

Charles Schulz (1922): Popular American cartoonist who penned “Peanuts”, the most successful comic strip of all time. Read by more than 350 million people around the world, the strip followed the amusing mishaps and misadventures of young Charlie Brown and his pals Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, and perhaps the most recognizable character of all, Charlie’s dog, Snoopy. Schulz personally wrote and drew every “Peanuts’” strip for its first 50 years. Cancer forced Schulz to stop drawing the strip in November of 1999, and the illness eventually took his life February 12, 2000, on the eve of “Peanuts’” last Sunday strip. Schulz won many awards in his lifetime, the most notable being “International Cartoonist of the Year” in 1978.
