    Before Star Trek or Star Wars I was a fan of He-Man, and I still am to this day.

    Rest in peace, Lou.

    R.I.P. Lou Scheimer.:sigh: My boyhood in the '70s was filled with many happy memories of Saturday mornings of Filmation animated and live-action series.

    About 3 years ago, I had dinner with Lou's daughter Erika while attending a convention in LA. Lou was invited to the dinner but was unable to come due to his declining health. I never met the man in person, but had hoped that I would get the chance someday. I was a huge fan of the "Masters of the Universe" cartoon growing up. The success of that popular toyline can all be attributed to Lou, who took a silly barabrian/sci-fi fantasy concept, and turned it into something special. He made He-Man and She-ra into real heroes for kids to look up too. He will be greatly missed.
