Anthrocon is please to announce its first Guest of Honor for the Anthrocon 2014 convention: Lee Tockar!

At the age of five, young Lee William Tockar told his mother he wanted to grow up to be a cartoon. Though he did not understand the concept of a cartoon when he made the statement, his uncanny knack of impersonating accents and people won Lee first place in a talent show at the age of 10, for his performances as Kermit the Frog and Bugs Bunny. Now, internationally recognized in the Animation world, Lee has lent his voice to over 100 well-loved animated characters on the big and small screens. You have heard is voice in episodes of My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Underground, Street Sharks, Extreme Dinosaurs, and many others, along with countless video games and animated shorts.

Please join us in welcoming this world-renowned artist to our Furry world!

This is cool news, as a little guppy shark I used to watch Street Sharks all the time. In fact Ripster was a big hero of mine !!

I honestly had no idea this guy played some of the voices in Sonic Underground.

Actually, I didn't know the guy existed until he was announced as this year's guest of honor... *ears lower* I feel a little ashamed...

Do not feel bad. Many people are first introduced to our Guests of Honor by way of Anthrocon. THEN they become thorough fans. Smiling

Very true! I didn't know who he was until I saw this thread. I used to watch AOSTH all the time, and the only name I remember from the credits was Jaleel White, the guy who did the voice for Sonic, because he also played Urkel from Family Matters. I have nothing to be ashamed of, however, and I look forward to meeting Lee Tockar in July! Eye-wink

Would you believe that I only had a vague idea of who James Gurney was when he was announced guest of honor for Anthrocon 2010? >.> It wasn't until I really got to see his work and talk to him that I discovered what an incredible artist and author he is and now I'm a huge fan!

So a few years ago, a good buddy of mine gave me a ripster action figure from street sharks. Its really cool, has a voice chip and several buttons  for different things to say. I am wondering if it would be appropriate (for sharky) to have him sign that action figure. Eye-wink

It never hurts to ask.  Just don't smile at him.  It's unnerving when you do that.

Smile?  I thought the danger was in making eye contact.

"Freefall" strip FTW! Ron. Highfive

Freefall, Jack, Slop, The Whiteboard, Schlock Mercenary, Doc Rat, and a few others are my favorite web-comics.

(Unfortunatly, I am like a year or more behind on most of them. Sad Why is there never time?!)

Sharky with new teeth

 

I had some dental work done over the winter time, my teeth are capped off now. I like the new look, makes me look ... well friendly
