Oh, man..... That's horrible.
I'm posting this here, as Lou eclipses all parts of MOTU and POP. Jon Kallis just let me know that the Toon Museum posted the unfortunate news that Lou has passed away.
This is... this is really horrible. I have no way to describe how devastating this is to lose a man who brought so many of us so much joy growing up.
There aren't words to sum up how much he will be missed.
Oh, man..... That's horrible.

A sad day indeed

Awful news. Rest in peace, Mr. Scheimer.

Posted my thread the same time as Val. Please close it as Val's thread should be the one we all go to to offer our condolences and talk about Lou's achievements.
THE KEY! GET THE KEY!
God bless the Scheimer family during this time.
And thank you Lou for making all of our childhoods extra special!
This is truly tragic news. Good journey to life after this to the man that made my childhood. You will be forever missed by every MOTU and POP fan.

He lived a great life! He contributed so much to young and old alike! What an amazing man, THANK YOU Lou for everything you have contributed to my life!
Rest In Peace! One of the great stand up guys!
Very sad to hear this . A huge loss to the MOTU community.
Horrible news! Even though I'm german and had far less exposure to the cartoon, it still was a big part of my MotU-mythos as a kid. His name was always connected to He-man in my mind. He will be sorely missed.
Rest in piece, Lou! May you have the Power!

Rest in Peace, Lou. Thanks for your many contributions to western animation and especially your world-building additions to MOTU.
What a true loss! May he find eternal happines
This is definitely very sad! A huge part of what shaped my childhood and my life thereafter was the work that he did. I wish I had gotten the chance to meet him at a convention, but I am grateful for everything that he did and worked on. RIP Lou.

Sad news of course but his legacy will live on forever in his work. Thanks for the great shows, Lou.
SAD NEWS !!!!!
We may buy, contribute and send a Commemorative plate. What do you think guys ??
I'm not in USA and can't deal with that but if someone can organize, I would participate and I think we should honor him !
God Bless, thoughts and prayers with his family in this difficult time.
Thank you so much for the memories.
Responsible for many of my fond childhood memories, THANK YOU.
Rest in peace, Lou Scheimer. Without your cartoons to greet me as I came in the door after school, my childhood would have been an emptier place.
