Looks like Dr. Hibbert has been quietly replaced, for the same reasoning:

With Fox they rather retire characters than recast, Disney clearly doesn't care about recasting. Will the main simpsons family be recast after one of them dies?
It's happened in other countries dubs so why not the american version? Disney won't let this cash cow they just acquired go to waste.

They really need to promote Kevin to series regular and have him take on most of the Black characters. He could do it.

Wait, the original Dr. Hibbard was still alive? Too bad, really. Could have just made a new character.

Character in a satirical series being a caricature?

Spoiler:


Its like this idiots don't understand meaning of satire. Oh, wait, they don't. Its all about image and how much money they can make by pandering to retards who largely don't buy their products.

I don't have any problem with Kevin Michael Richardson. He's done a lot of great stuff in some of my favorite things.

But I do think it's kinda silly that it's apparently a law now, that he HAS to voice Every Single Black Cartoon Character On TV, and most of the ones in video games.

...He's also voiced plenty of white and Asian and other "not-black" characters, too. Which is an irony I'm sure DisneyFox are far too busy to stop and take notice of.

Black Actors voicing White Characters: ACCEPTABLE
White Actors voicing Black Characters: HORRIBLY RACIST

Like, it's ridiculous. And don't even get me started on the whole "White people voicing Black characters takes opportunities away from Black actors" supposition, because that hypothesis is exposed as complete bullsh*t once you look at those Black characters and realize that they're ALL voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, anyway! Like c'mon. Look at the guy's Wikipedia page, he's doing fine. If anything, HE'S the one "stealing opportunities" from other Black voice actors, since he's the only one anyone wants to hire, it seems like. I don't blame him for that, though; I'm just pointing out how inherently flawed the entire theory is.
