Toward the end of his career, Scott worked for Walt Disney Studios, where he voiced Moosel on The Wuzzles, and was Gruffi Gummi and Toadwart in Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears (he was succeeded by Corey Burton after his death). Gummi Bears, his last role, had also reunited him with June Foray, his Rocky and Bullwinkle co-star. Scott was also a fine singer and performer, active with a Little Theatre group in Tujunga called the Foothill Curtain Raisers. He was especially well known for his talents interpreting Gilbert and Sullivan, and did much to encourage aspiring actors and musicians. He donated great amounts of time to tutoring young people in difficulty.
Scott died of a heart attack on November 29, 1985 in Tujunga, Los Angeles, California. He was survived by his wife, Dorothy, and their three children. Because of this, further episodes and seasons of The Wuzzles were canceled, and Scott's roles in Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears were all recast with different actors. In addition, the films George of the Jungle (and its sequel) are inspirations to his work on the classic George of the Jungle cartoon series from the 1960s.
