You're positive you saw him drinking a Pepsi outside the EZ Mart in Little Rock. Or was it him standing next to you at the urinal in the men's room at Fuddrucker's in Coconut Grove? He's everywhere, man, and still raking in a hunka hunka more money in a single month from beyond the grave than you'll ever seen in your lifetime.
Just in time for Halloween, Forbes.com has released its annual list of the top-earning dead celebrities. For the fifth year in a row, the most grateful dead celebrity hauling in piles of cold cash is Elvis Presley.
The King's estate earned a reported $45 million this year, while "Peanuts" cartoonist Charles M. Schulz was next on the list at $35 million. Recently deceased Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and Marlon Brando are all new for the top wage earning dead. All together, these Top 13 brought in a collective $186 million from residuals from their recordings, writings, and rights usage. And they can't spend any of it.
The Top 13 DEAD Earners:
Charles M. Schulz
Theodore "Dr. Seuss" Geisel
