Today’s Toyark: Off The Shelf is dedicated to the great Lou Scheimer. The name may not be familiar, but, if you grew up in the 70’s and 80’s, you surely knew the man’s work. Mr. Scheimer was the founder of a little company you may have heard of called Filmation. That name should instantly be familiar to most of you, as they brought us classic cartoon series like He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Fat Albert, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Bravestarr, and many, many more.
Sadly, Lou Scheimer passed away last Thursday at the age of 85. So we’re goign to take a look back at some intros to celebrate the brilliant and groundbreaking work from Filmation‘s vast history.
Read on to check it out.
