Early 1990s when I started watching The Transformers (1984), though that was before I learned that not all cartoons are American (However, while the classic Speed Racer series was the second anime I got into, you may consider this what made me the anime fan I'm today if you don't consider the original Trasnformers to be anime)

News: Scooby-Doo Voice Actor Casey Kasem Kicks the Bucket

Today is indeed a sad day for fans of Scooby-Doo, Transformers, and/or DC Comics. For this morning, it was reported that this morning, Casey Kasem had kicked the bucket. He was at age 82 when this happened. We know him as the guy who voiced Shaggy for various incarnations of Scooby-Doo (including 1969's Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!) as well as Dick Grayson/Robin for the various animated Superfriends series and 1968's The Adventures of Batman (with Robin The Boy Wonder, and of course Teletran I, Cliffjumper, Dr. Archeville, and Bluestreak for 1984's The Transformers (aka "Transformers Generation One"). Some North America-based anime fans may remember him as the voice of Mark/G-1 in Battle of the Planets, the 1978 Americanized re-dub and re-edit of the 1972 Japanese Animated series Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.

The American animation industry has lost another legendary and well talented voice actor. He will be missed.

External Image

Just a reminder that May 3, 2014 will be the day the 13th annual Free Comic Book Day event. If you're a comic book fan like myself, or are just getting interested in exploring this amazing entertainment medium, make sure to mark your calendars for this upcoming event, and visit The Free Comic Book Day website to find out if a comic shop near your residence is taking part in the event.

As for me, FCBD comic items I am looking out for include: The New 52 Future's End No. 0, Guardians of the Galaxy, All Rocket Racoon, Grimm Fairy Tales No. 0, Steam Wars, Valiant Universe Handbook, Sonic The Hedgehog/Megaman Flipbook No. 1, The Tick, Street Fighter No. 0, Showa: A History of Japan, Transformers Vs. G.I. Joe, and possibly Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Quite a list yes, but no one can ever have enough interesting stories to check out.
