We’d like to welcome back an old friend for Retro Con 2018: Voice Actor Larry Kenney!

 

 

A veteran in the world of radio and voice acting for over 40 years, Larry is best known in the retro realm as the voice of Lion-O, Lord of the ThunderCats! Fans got to watch the character learn and grow into the confident leader of the ThunderCats team across 130 episodes of the wildly popular 80’s cartoon series by Rankin/Bass.

Larry also voiced Jackalman and Safari Joe on the show, and went on to voice Lion-O’s father Claudus in the 2011 revival of ThunderCats!

 

 

Larry did voice work for the Rankin/Bass’s follow-up cartoon series as well, Silverhawks, where he played Colonel Bluegrass, Buzzsaw, and Poker-Face. 

He was also the voice of classic cereal mascots Count Chocula and Cocoa Puffs Sonny, and has been the tagline voice in the popular Skittles commercials for more than a decade now. “Exclusive the Rainbow! Taste the Rainbow!”

 

 

Larry will be at Retro Con on SATURDAY ONLY! He doesn’t travel to as many conventions these days, so don’t miss this chance to meet the voice of some of the most revered characters of all time!!

We welcome Dirk Benedict to Retro Con 2017! Dirk is known for two iconic roles on genre TV…

He starred on the wildly popular 80’s series The A-Team as the team’s resident smoothie and hustler Templeton Peck, aka “Face”!  

 And Dirk also played a lead role on the 1978 sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica, as the brash but charming Colonial pilot Starbuck! 

Dirk is scheduled to attend Retro Con both Saturday and Sunday! We’ll post autograph/photo op prices as we get closer to show time.

We’re also planning an A-Team panel for Dirk at the show along with fellow cast member Dwight Schultz! It will be scheduled for that Sunday (October 15th). During which attendees can ask questions about the show, or even the actors’ work unrelated to the show!

Dwight Schultz to Attend Retro Con 2017!

We are thrilled to add actor Dwight Schultz to our guest list for Retro Con 2017! Dwight has two very popular roles in the retro realm.

DwightSchultz1

  Most notably, Dwight played Captain H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock in all 97 episodes of the hit 80’s TV series The A-Team! The seemingly insane former army captain was the A-Team’s resident pilot, and was a constant source of comic relief in every episode. His back and forth banter with B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) made for some of the funniest moments on the show!

MurdockAteam1

  Dwight is also well known for a reoccurring role in the Star Trek universe: Lieutenant Reginald Barclay! The character started out with anxiety and social issues, along with an addiction to the Holodeck. But he eventually found his confidence and became an upstanding member of the crew, while still retaining his trademark quirkiness. Dwight played the role in Star Trek: The Next Generation, the First Contact theatrical film, and in Star Trek: Voyager.

In recent years Dwight has kept busy as a voice actor, with roles such as Dr. Animo on Ben 10, Mung on Chowder, and Wyrm on Nickelodeon’s current iteration of TMNT. Dwight also had the opportunity to revisit the character of H.M. Murdock by voicing the character in the recent LEGO Dimensions A-Team game!
