Forbes Annual List of Top-Earning Dead Celebs is Out!

Michael Jackson tops this year's Forbes' Highest-Paid Dead Celebrities list. The singer's estate has earned nearly 400-million-dollars from the sale of an E-M-I publishing stake as well as a Sony record deal and a Halloween TV special. 

Other celebrities on the list include Elvis Presley with 40-million and legendary golfer Arnold Palmer with 35-million.

In all, dead celebrities have raked in around 629-million-dollars this year, nearly doubling last year's Forbes tally. 

Charles Schulz, the Peanuts creator, was number four on the list, while Bob Marley, Dr. Seuss, Hugh Hefner, Marilyn Monroe, Prince and John Lennon round out the top 10.
