The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for years! At least three decades now and have morphed many times. But one thing remains the same.. Raphael will always be my favorite. He won me over in the early 90’s, during the first two live action movies! His personality was unforgettable.
Now I ask you. Do you have a favorite? Share your thoughts and these four Heroes in a Half Shell!
I’ve been sharing a lot of my favorite Retro Con moments of late. But this, has to be one of my favorite moments! In 2012, we had a Thundercat Reunion! We had three of the original voice actors attend! Larry Kenney [The voice of Lion-o], Peter Newman [The voice of Tygra, my favorite Thundercat. Can you have a crush on a cartoon character? I did!] and Gerrianne Raphael [The voice of Pumyra]! Of course that’s not naming off all of the characters they voiced! But a few of my personal favorites!
My favorite memory! I had dinner with the actors and their families the night before the the show, and at one point Peter had me hide Larry’s dinner plate. Larry was positive it was the waitress, until I started laughing.
Meanwhile, back at the legion of doom.. We have a selection of art honoring these wonderful characters! Character’s that brightened our Saturday Mornings! Art again by Thuddleston!
This piece is titled Super Powers Lex Luthor, voiced by Stan Jones! [We’re also honoring the talented actors behind these welled loved characters! Thank you for bringing us so much joy! Vic Perrin who voiced Sinestro, was in the classic episode of Star Trek: Memory Alpha. He was born in 1915. Ted Cassidy who voiced Black Manta, was also Lurch on The Addams Family! Now picture Black Manta approaching Lex Luthor with his famous qoute..”You rang?” A few of these wonderful talents I’ve have the opportunity of knowing and meeting; Marlene Aragon, Micheal Bell & Frank Welker! Such wonderful talents!
A personal favorite Black Manta, voiced by Ted Cassidy!
