We have Larry Kenney coming back for our 2014 show, and now we are pleased to announce the return of another ThunderCats favorite:
Voice actor Peter Newman!
Peter is perhaps most remembered for giving voice and personality to the ThunderCats’ resident scientist and architect Tygra! Second in command of the ThunderCats team, Tygra was also the designer of many of the structures on Third Earth, including the Cat’s Lair and the Tower of Omens! His weapon of choice was a whip-like bolas, and he had the ability of limited invisibility as well as telepathy.
Peter also voiced other prominent characters on the show, including…
and Ben Gali!
They’re back! For fans that buy an autograph from voice actor Larry Kenney at Retro Con 2014, you’ll receive a lenticular Thundercats Lion-o ring still sealed in package! These were originally part of a Burger King fun meal promotion from 1985. Available while supplies last!
He was the very first guest announcement for our inaugural show, and now we are pleased to announce the RETURN of the Lord of the ThunderCats himself to our 2014 show: Voice actor Larry Kenney!
Larry is of course best known for his role of the heroic leader of the ThunderCats, Lion-o! The show ran for 130 episodes across four seasons (from 1985 to 1989).
Larry is also known for being the voice of guitar-playing Colonel Bluegrass on SilverHawks, martial arts black-belt Karate Kat (part of ‘The Comic Strip’ tv show), plus he gave personality to Count Chocula and Cocoa Puffs Sonny in cereal commercials in the 80’s. In more recent years he has been the announcer on vh-1′s ‘Best Week Ever’ program, and has reprised his role of Lion-o for humorous ThunderCats skits on the animated series Family Guy. He was also given the role of Claudus, father of Lion-o, on the updated ThunderCats cartoon in 2011!
For those kids that meet the original voice talents of both the Thundercats & Silverhawks cartoons, you’ll receive retro style coloring sheets of your favorite characters, including a small packet of crayons!
Retro Con is pleased to announce that we now have a gathering of Thundercats talents! Larry Kenney (the original Lord of the Thundercats, Lion-O) is now to be joined by Peter Newman & Gerrianne Raphael (the voices of Tygra and Pumyra respectively)!
For you retro fans that buy autographs from Larry Kenney during Retro Con, you’ll now receive a lenticular Thundercats Lion-o ring still sealed in package from 1985! (limit one per attendee) The toy was originally released in a Burger King fun meal. We have a limited supply though, so make sure you jump on those autographs! =)
