Hailed as one of the fathers of Saturday morning television, LouScheimer was the co-founder of Filmation Studios, which for over 25years provided animated excitement for TV and film. Always at theforefront, Scheimer's company created the first DC cartoons withSuperman, Batman, and Aquaman, ruled the song charts with The Archies,kept Trekkie hope alive with the Emmy-winning Star Trek: The AnimatedSeries, taught morals with Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, and swunginto high adventure with Tarzan, The Lone Ranger, and Zorro.

Forays into live-action included Shazam! and The Secrets of Isis, plusgroundbreaking special effects work on Jason of Star Command andothers. And in the 1980s, Filmation single-handedly caused thesyndication explosion with He-Man and the Masters of the Universe andits successors.

Now, Lou Scheimer tells the entire story to best-selling author AndyMangels, including how his father decked Adolf Hitler, memories of thecomics of the Golden Age, schooling with Andy Warhol, and what it meantto lead the last all-American animation company through nearly thirtyyears of innovation and fun!

Profusely illustrated with photos, model sheets, storyboards,presentation art, looks at rare and unproduced series, and more — plusstories from top animation insiders about Scheimer and Filmation'spast, and rare Filmation art by Bruce Timm, Adam Hughes, Alex Ross,Phil Jimenez, Frank Cho, Gene Ha, and Mike McKone — this book will showthe Filmation Generation the story behind the stories!

Note to He-Man.org fans: There are discussions for Lou to appear atComic-Con, but nothing is confirmed. There will likely be some kind ofsigned edition as well directly through the publisher.
