Even though David is already 74 years old, he is still active. For example, this year he voiced one of the characters, Skipper, on children’s animated show Pip Ahoy! Jason is quoted saying: „I’ve never ever ‘felt my age’, whatever that means. I think that there are a lot of people who feel 22 when in fact they’re 62, and there are a lot of youngsters out there who behave as if they were four times their age. It’s an attitude of mind, isn’t it?“ And it seems like his attitude has always been lagging behind his biological age.
