Gidget, Taco Bell Chihuahua

Alas, yet another Hollywood great has left us.

As you've probably already heard, Gidget, the Taco Bell Chihuahua, died Tuesday at the impressive age of 15. No, it wasn't the sauce on the chalupa that did her in—the star canine suffered a massive stroke and had to be euthanized.

Aside from mouthing "Yo quiero Taco Bell" from 1997 to 2000, the pooch also appeared in Reno 911 and as Bruiser's mom in the Legally Blonde sequel.

Her passing got us to thinking about some of Tinseltown's other dearly departed domesticated critters who've left us in past two decades, like the stars of Air Bud and Free Willy. Here's who we came up with—and let us know who you miss.
