    Lou Scheimer Tribute Panel from Power-Con 2016

    John Carroll filmed the panel and edited it together with Erika Scheimer's presentation. This was a very memorable panel and I encourage everyone to watch.
    Thanks to Erika and Amy for putting this together for the show, and thank you to John for editing and posting this video.

    Power-Con returns in 2016! Hope to see you there!

    Looking forward to watching this! So glad it was filmed. Where would we be without this guy?

    Lou, you are remembered.

    I didn't attend the panel (too busy at my table), so imagine my surprise when a bunch of people told me that she promoted my work on the forthcoming He-Man and She-Ra: A Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures - Erika's always been lovely, but this was VERY unexpected! :)

    That was a great video. It was very informative and interesting. What an amazing story.

    Edit: I didn't think much of Robin and the Dreamweavers at first, but now I really wish I could see it. It sounds really cool now.

    Lou Scheimer was such a talented man. He did the voices of Orko, King Randor, Stratos, Man-E-Faces, Mekaneck, Trap-Jaw, and Tri-Klops as well as a dozen other side characters. He also wrote many of the story scripts and invented the whole Prince Adam transforming into He-Man.

    The phrase "I have the Power" was Lou Scheimer's idea.

    With all due respect to Lou, he wasn't involved in the writing of many scripts - That was down to the staff writers like Robby London and Paul Dini (for season one), and Larry DiTillio and J. Michael Straczyski (for season two) - And those sets of writers would devise scripts with Arthur Nadel - Nadel was THE guy when it came to script development! :)

    This was a really beautifully done presentation. Erika really outdid herself pulling together all of these clips and paying tribute to her father like this. Hard to believe there weren't more people in charge fighting to keep animation in the US.

    Thank you for sharing it for us who missed it!
