Peter Newman returns for Retro Con 2014!

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…

Peter also worked on another Rankin/Bass Productions favorite-

Peter will be on hand all weekend for autographs and pictures, and we plan to have a panel featuring him as well as his other voice actor colleagues! Come out and relive the magic!
