It's quite a loss. Scheimer and his colleagues probably had more influence on me in my childhood than any other non-family member except Gene Roddenberry. Filmation's shows helped shape my values and beliefs.

My sympathies also go out to my colleague Andy Mangels, a former Star Trek novelist who also produced the Filmation DVDs released in recent years and wrote books about Filmation and Scheimer, including the recent biography Lou Scheimer: Creating the Filmation Generation. Andy was a good friend of Scheimer's and I know this is a major loss for him.

Lou Scheimer's Filmation shows made every Saturday morning enjoyable for me as a boy in the '70s.
