I am so sorry to hear about the death of your father, and I am sorry for my late posting. You may not remember me, but we went to grade school together. You were a dear friend, and I am so sorry for your loss. What a treasure your father was, and will always be. Prayers for you and your family.
I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for having contribute for the joy of thousands of children across the globe including myself. I was born in France and he-man was known under :musclor. This cartoon will forever be a source of positive inspiration filled with great values that have helped shape who I am today. My prayers go to the Scheimer family.Merci Lou.
Thank you for He-Man, Jason of Star Command and Zorro. Children's show from 80's were really cool thanks to You and Your friends. Young people could learn about things which are necessary in life - friendship, devotion, overcoming weaknesses. There was no violence nor nasty behaviour. I wish all children's programs will be like Filmation's productions.
It was nice to watch these with my parents and sister. They were so positive and gave us so much joy.
Rest in peace, Lou. I hope God will reward You your hard work - Work of making childern's television in very cruel world.
Thank you for allowing She-Ra to be a part of my childhood.
Coming home from school every day to an empty house, but He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was always there. Thank you Lou.
May angels speed you on your journey good sir. Thank you for making my childhood better. I do not think I would have survived a trying youth without shows like He-man, Bravestarr and the countless others. You will be missed. May god be with you and your family.
Thank you Mr. Scheimer for all the wonderful memories (MOTU for me) growing up in the 80's. You will be sorely missed. RIP
It's hard for me to say, but I have been a fan of Filmation since I was little. Shows like He-Man, Fat Albert, Tarzan, and Shazam! were my favorites. My prayers go to the Scheimer family. Thank you, Lou.
Thank you for everything. You made growing up a LOT more fun.
You made being a kid in the 80's awesome. I'm sorry that I never knew who you were until today. I can still rembrandt playing heman with my fronds at preschool.
Via con dios.

You were a very talented personn, and you will be missed in the animation industry.
All my thougths go to you and your familly

Best regards from France
I don't think I realized what a huge influence this man had on my life. So many of the shows I watched growing up would not have been there were not for him.
Not only were his shows exciting, and amusing, but they taught us things we would not have learned any other way. Thank you Lou Scheimer for helping us learn to be both good and brave.
Lou was a pioneer in his industry. He gathered together many talented people and gave us all great shows like He-man, She-ra, Bravestarr, Filmation's Ghostbusters, Fat Albert, and many many more. My heart goes out to Lou's family. He will be missed greatly by many.
Gracias por darle color y alegria a mi infancia QEPD
Dear Scheimer family,
I want to say I have been a fan of Lou's Filmation production ever since i was a baby ever since the He-man and She-ra series have been around. It is in my heart that i too as a fan feel the remorse of Lou's departure. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. We all have the power to stay strong.
Thank you Mr. Lou Scheimer for enhancing the moral values and fabric of our society. I will pass on all of the cartoons, action figures and accessories to my grandchildren. With all of God's grace, Albert Gonzalez

Your Masters of the Universe show was a wonderful part of my childhood. Thank you for that. Thank you even more for the special memories I'm able to make even now as I watch the show with my own children. Your life and your work will be remembered with fondness and respect. Rest in peace.
Thank you, Mr. Scheimer, for your humor, kindness, and heart which you shared freely both in person and through your tremendous creative legacy.
It is a sad day, indeed, for Eternia, Riverdale, Metropolis, New Texas, Mongo, Horrible Hall, the U.S.S. Enterprise, and all the other magical locales you shared with the children of the world.
I first want to wish my deepest sympathies to the Scheimer family.
Waking up early in my childhood to watch He-Man on television. Wonderful memories, thanks to Mr. Scheimer. Wayne From England.
I'm very sad to've heard of Lou Scheimer's death. He was the powerhouse of Filmation Studios. Two of his most notable projects are "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" and "She-Ra: Princess of Power." By honoring his memory, the powers of Grayskull and Filmation shall forever live on in us fans. Mr. Scheimer'd be very proud.
Thank you for so many memories. Many a night is spent with me and my partner gathered around the television at eleven at night watching any number of Filmation shows. Thank you so much
Waking up early in my childhood to watch He-Man on television. Wonderful memories, thanks to Mr. Scheimer.

You contributed to so many of our childhoods, are a true talent with a great social conscious for children's media... May you rest in peace & always be remembered.
Thank you Lou Scheimer & family!
Lou, have a good one & txx for the memories. You played a key role in pop culture.
Thank you for all you have done for us! You have brought many smiles to many faces! The He-Man and She-Ra family is forever going to miss you!
I know Lou in my heart that Jesus / Yeshua, took you by the hand into his kingdom by the hand, and brought you to His wounderful kingdom, & one day He Will bring you back with Him on the day He returns for us who are within Him, and He within us. God bless your forever and look forward to the day when U and I meet. Amen.
Thank you, Lou, for helping shape me into a person I'm proud to be. May I continue to uphold the values your work instilled in me, and someday pass those lessons onto my own children.
For a man I have never met, you had a great impact on my life. Thanks for giving us heroes to look up to Mr. Scheimer.
Thanks for the best childhood a man could have. I just went to my mother's house and pick up my old MotU castles for my 3-year old son to play with.
Mr. Scheimer's work will always be an important part of my childhood and inspiration as an animation major. My prayers go the Scheimer's family.
Thank you Lou for working hard with the team at Filmation for having He-Man and She-Ra be bought to the tv screen for me to enjoy during my childhood during the 1980's. Take care and god bless!
Lou, thank you so much for the memories and many years of animation! Your character transcended into your work showing what a great individual you were, & because of that you touch the world of several generations! Thanks you for giving us African American characters and fighting to have story lines to help make the world a better place! I offer my prayers to you and your family and I know you are truly an angle protecting the world now! Thank you & Blessings
R.I.P Lou, thanks for all the great shows.
Because of you my childhood will always have great memories thanks to He-Man, She-Ra, and Bravestarr. If only most of todays cartoons had your imagination to guide them. Good Journey Mr. Scheimer
Thank you Lou for bringing MOTU to life! Thank you for being brave enough to add morals to the end of each episode.
When I have children I plan to watch each episode with them and hope that they learn from each moral or lesson and thereby become good, honest people. May you rest in peace.
Thank you Lou for all the happy childhood memories,You've made possible for me my wife and children
Even today with He-Man and She-Ra,
The morals the love the Power.
The world a little less magical with him gone. We have truly lost a treasure.
Thank you, Lou. Your work is now inspiring my children.
Thank you for making my childhood a memorable one! Your fantastic stories and characters have always been a part of my inspiration in what I do! Thank you!
Thank you for all the wonderful memories of He-Man you created during my childhood in the 1980's. My children will be entertained with the same great stories that I still enjoy today. You will be sorely missed. Rest in peace.
Thanks Lou not from only the children over the last 30 years but also the big grown up children of today who still fondly admire your vast array of Filmation greats. He-Man, She-Ra & Bravestarr to name a few out of many super shows. They still hold wondefull memories to many folk all over the world. Greatest respect & wishes to you and your family at this sad time. Thank You once more.
Thank you Lou for all the fond memories. It was your dedication to properties like Masters of the Universe that made it possible for me to enjoy such great shows when I was growing up.
Thank you for bringing the worlds of He-Man and She-Ra to life, they have made a lasting impact on me. From interviews I have watched you seemed like a genuinely good and nice person as well. May you rest in peace and your legacy live on forever.
Thank you for the good moments of my childhood I shared with my brother. It still helps me today in a hard adult every days' life. Kisses from France.
A bright star in the sky that will never stop to shine, like the dreams you put on everyone's heart will never stop to live !!
MAN E THANKS Mr Lou !!
What will always be extraordinary with Louis Scheimer's work is that it reached millions of children in the whole world, and i was one of it, living in France. Thank you so much Mr Scheimer for your work, that also helped us growing and becoming who we are now.
Your talent and work brought much joy to my life, you will be missed.
I was saddened to hear that the world had lost one of its most influential pioneers in animation. Lou's legacy will continue for generations to come. The effect that his work had on my childhood cannot be put into words but I am forever grateful to be a child of the 80's. Thanks for the memories, Lou.
Adiós y gracias por tanta inspiración.
Thanks Lou. Thanks for shaping my childhood creating wonderful stories that taught children everywhere how to be good people. Thank you for instilling morals to young people in a fun way. I never will forget the wonderful things you've done for my childhood. Thanks Lou.
I became a fan of He-Man and the masters of the universe from the moment I saw the very 1st episode . Now 30 years later iam still a huge fan and have introduced the show to my kids and one day will introduce it to my grandkids. Thank you for the great childhood memories and for the greatest animated show of alltime .
I would like to thank Lou, Erika, and the Scheimer family for your grand contributions to the world. You have made a difference and helped shape the characters of multitudes. On a personal note, I thank you for all the time I got to spend with Lou and Erika. You made me feel so welcome, and it was an honor. You are very missed, Lou. All my love to you and your family. --Lee Clevenger
Thank you for the greatest cartoons and the positive messages they carried,Rest In Piece Lou Scheimer.
A GREAT MAN LEFT US... R.I.P.
You will always be remembered and loved. Not only for your contribution to the childhood and dreams of millions, but for being a fantastic man in general.
Thank you for making my childhood bright.
Thankyou for giving the world the wonderful cartoons that touched the lives of many people. The gift of the work you did will continue giving.
Our special memory of Lou is travelling on a cruise in 2009 and we were neighbors. We enjoyed have lunch and drinks with Lou and laughed alot. Erika our thoughts are with you at the loss of your Dad.
From Canada Henry and Greta Heinen
Thank you for all the wonderful childhood memories. Rest in peace.
Thank you so much for everything you have done. You did not just create cartoons that kids loved and adults still love today, you instilled morals and values and a boundless imagination into an entire generation of children who may have had no where else to learn from. By the power of Grayskull, may your soul be at peace. We love you
Your work changed my life. Saddened doesn't even start to cover it. It was obvious that you cared about everything you did. Motu was my life as a kid and that is because of you. You made toys into characters with hearts and souls. Your work will live for all ever. Thank you so much.
Filmation, Lou and all their cartoons such as He-Man, Ghostbusters, Bravestarr, etc ... lit with fantasy my childhood. It's really sad that the father of these wonderful characters is not with us anymore.
Rest in peace, and a respectful greeting for your family, friends and fans. Thank you for so much!!
Thank you Lou, He-man and the Masters of the Universe She-Ra and Blackstarr were huge influences on my childhood and part of the reason I became an artist.
Bless your family and thank you for better childhood entertainment and the morals they taught.
RIP Lou Scheimer...thank you for all the great heman cartoons and memories, they were such a big part of my life then and now...my condolences for the entire Scheimer family...you will be greatly missed
thank you for the best show and time in my life for motu. fan for life.
Thank you for bringing me my favorite cartoon of all time when I was growing up. I still watch it to this day. Motu is the best. Thank you again.
I never met him, but by all accounts, he was a wonderful man. He positively influenced so many of us. Not only did he create wonderful cartoons, but he tried to instill good morals and values in children, something that is woefully lacking in children's products today. He cared about his employees, cared about keeping people working, and cared about the youth of the world. Lou's MotU universe was a huge part of my childhood and I continue to thoroughly enjoy it today.
Thank you for everything, Lou. Your influence will never be forgotten.
Thank you Lou for many many days as a little boy being anxious to get home or wake up early to watch He-man. And then getting my sister into She-Ra. My best friend and I meet thru He-man. I have many positive memories in some way or another related to the Flimation cartoon or toys. I also enjoyed many other cartoons made thru Flimation, but predominantly MOTU and POP.
Thank you Lou, Till next time.
Thanks for giving us the He-Man and She-Ra cartoons!
You enriched our childhood and gave us very worthy moral lessons with your shows.
I believe I became a better person following along He-Man's advice - And I will also forward this to my kids, when we're watching your cartoons together.
Thank you for everything!
It is quite sad when a legend dies. A legend is a hero that impacts the world in a positive manner. Lou Scheimer is such a legend that taught the children in the 1980's moral values and sensitivity to all. In his series of Masters of the Universe, Lou is a role model for all. He will be missed for his teaching the children.
Thanks for creating a fantastic part of my childhood. I will always remember the great cartoons and positive message they had.
Rest in Peace Lou.
With your cartoons you molded a generatioj around the world. I'm one of those lucky onee who had a better and more exciting childhood because of you. Thank you Lou! I owe you part of what I am today
You made many a child happy and smile with all the cartoons you were part of in the 80's, I myself have many fond memories of them and will never forget them. Thank You for everything you've done not just for me but for millions of other 80's kids. RIP
I had a wonderful childhood thanks to Filmation, and it has been amazing rediscovering those old cartoons now that I'm older. Thank you, Lou, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for the countless hours of joy you gave me and every other child who spent time sitting down in front of the TV watching your shows. You have the power.
Thank you for so many memorable cartoons which set the standard for all cartoons to come. Rest good sir and good journey.
Dear family and friends of Mr. Scheimer:
My most sincere condolences. I wish you all strength and courage in this difficult moment. Mr. Scheimer's legacy will continue to live on. Remember that many, many children have fond memories of his projects, cartoons, and work. I will never forget the impact of Flash Gordon, and He-Man and She-Ra on my life!
As a child, I grew up in an extremely abusive and volatile family. We were also very poor farmers, so I was forced to work from sun up to sun down from the time I was 5 years old (except while in school) in order to help support my family. I didn't have the luxury of owning toys and rarely had time to watch cartoons. BUT there were a few instances when it was raining too hard for us to work outside on the farm, so during those handful of times I turned on the tv and watched He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Throughout my entire childhood I never saw more than 4-5 episodes, but those few instances still stick with me today.
While watching He-man, I felt comfort and shelter during my difficult childhood. I also learned the difference between good and bad, right and wrong, love and hate...and I have Lou to thank for that!
So, I just want to say THANKS LOU for all you have done for all of us. You will be missed, but never forgotten. You live on within us.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Scheimer family.
Rest in Peace Lou.
"Remember, it's today that counts. So make it the best day possible." ~He-Man
You will be missed.Thank you for He-Man and She-Ra. You made my life more enjoyable.
i grew up with so meny good shows that you made you made shows that had action and were fun and i know that it was not easy to do so thank you and know i will always love the work you did thank you
He-Man has been one of the most important tv-shows that has made me who I am now. Even though I couldn't understand a word they said I still understood what the episodes were about. That's great storytelling.
Now Lou Scheimer has joined Walt Disney among the greatest American animation makers ever. Thank you for everything.
Farewell Mr Scheimer, and thank you so much!! My son will grow up with your values.
My thanks and condolences to the whole Scheimer family. Masters of the Universe helped me connect with my peers and be less shy, and, more importantly, provided an easy common ground for me to help some of my very, very bullied grade school classmates to connect with me and others, and otherwise relax in a world of imaginative play time.I really, truly, believe that the fun and creative world Lou established might've saved some childrens' lives, and for that I will be forever grateful to your whole family for making that possible. For all those kids that were bullied that had a chance to escape for a while into a safe, fantastic world, I raise a sword to you Lou.
Thank you to you and your family for all the amazing stories.
You made my childhood, as with many others worth more than remembering. We cherish it for the rich content and constant innovation when it comes to cartoons we've all grown to love and be proud of. Thanks to you. May you continue to shine your brilliance even in the afterlife...
For most of us growing up in the 80's, this man helped shape a lot of the courage, charisma, and morals we hold so dear today and pass on to our own children. Our childhoods were changed beyond explanation. To the Scheimer Family, I pass on my condolences, but know that his legacy will live on forever as we share these messages with our children , who will share them with their own.
Good journey, Lou Scheimer.
Lou, thanks for all the childhood memories. He-Man was my favorite cartoon growing up, and I passed the love for MotU on to my kids. You impacted countless kids.
Thankyou Lou for everything the morals and the power.
Thank you, Mr. Scheimer. You are a true inspiration, coming from very humble beginnings to becoming the success that you becamse, and yet having such a wonderful impact on several generations. You will be greatly missed.
It was an honor to have met Lou, and I am forever grateful for the childhood I was blessed with due to his vision, and that I continue to enjoy today and pass down to my children. For the Honor and Power of Grayskull, thank you.
Thanks for giving us the heroes that molded our childhood, with the world you created you gave us the values that made us better adults, cuz in some way most of us grew to be adults with the heart of dreaming kids.
Everything I know about being a good citizen, I learned from Lou Scheimer.
Thank you for being a part of my growth as a child. The morals and life issues you gave in your programs helped me to grow into the person I am. thank you for helping shape my life.
I just wanted to say Thank you Lou for helping to make some of the best childhood memories a person could have. He-man was a huge part of my life growing up and I have you and your show to thank for that.
We were definitely blessed to have one such a Lou to pioneer the shows Filmation made over the years. Shows I enjoy watching to this day, which proves that one never really grows up.
I had the honor to meet Lou and Erika at Comi-con 2006 and really enjoyed talking to both. I will treasure all the memories, dvds, comics, and cel art I have collected over the years that much more because there will never be another like Lou Scheimer. Rest in peace, my friend, and God Bless.
Thank you Lou for all, You have the power forever!
A real Hero. Thanks for all.
Thank you Lou, for all the memories when I was a kid and now with my kids.
Lou, I will always be grateful for the wonderful joy you brought to my childhood and to my adulthood too.
The Masters of the Universe cartoon was a huge part of my life growing up, without Lou I would have never of got the chance to see it or be a part of the wonderful show! I always got a kick out of seeing his name during the opening of the cartoon. Thoughts go out to the family and thanks again Lou for giving myself and so many goods wonderful memories!!!
Thank you Mr. Scheimer for helping me become the man I am due to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. It was because of you bringing us this wonderful world filled with excitement and learning. It was because of the lessons learned from He-Man that I knew right from wrong.
To the Scheimer Family, my deepest condolences and prayers to you. But I'm sure you know that Mr. Scheimer will live on in all of us for generations.
Thank you all and I wish you all the very best.
Thank you. Your work still lives! Thank you for everything!
All I can say is thank you. Mr. Scheimer, you have given me some of my best memories from childhood. I cherish the memories of my Granny and I watching He-Man and She-Ra. It is impossible for anyone not to know what a kindhearted and generous human being you were. This world is much better off for having had you in it. Good journey into your next adventure.
Lou YOU were a GENIUS!
Fat Albert, Ghostbusters, Bravestarr, HE MAN and SHE RA plus countless other classic masterpieces.
You remain one of the reasons I fell in love with animation! Everything you had done was done with integrity and moral fiber.
Your eye for talent, both writing and animation work continue on through the masters Bruce Tim, Paul Dini, Tom Sito etc etc. You were right to pick these guys. They carry on your legacy as does your family and through fans and geeks like myself.
We will miss you Mr Scheimer. You all told us we have the power. We do.
PS- Mattel BETTER do a figure in MOTUC in your honor. Just saying.
Thanks for the magic words I Have the Power...I am He-Man...I loved watching the cartoon in the morning and afternoon so many memories and morals that I learned from watching the cartoon. I been a He-Man fan for a long long time.
Thank You Lou for creating this amazing world that has grown so much.
Thank you Mr. Schiemer for everything. Thank you for a wonderful childhood and the fond memories may you for ever be blessed. You haven't gone anywhere you will live
On with the children you entertained who today have passed on your legacy and work to their children.
She-ra is such a big part of who I aspire to be. She is my idol. Thank you for bringing her to life. Thank you for everything!
For the honor of Grayskull, we kids from the 80s love you!
To The Scheimer Family,
Mr. Scheimer helped make Saturday and Sunday mornings and weekday afternoons enjoyable. He helped create a lifetime of memories through the many projects he provided audiences of all ages and expanded the realm of creativity.
As a child, I did not know he was, but I was thankful for his efforts to provide me, family, friends and fans with art, entertainment and great memories. He will remain one of the great icons of television.
Thank you for sharing him with us.
Thank you! He man,Bravestar, She ra. I never knew you but these are the things I still love to this day.And it is all because of you.Good night kind sir.
Thank you for making my childhood that much better. You will be missed but not forgotten.
Thank you Lou. Thank you for the memories, the shows and the moral lessons you have taught me. You were a mentor and a teacher to me through a difficult childhood that I was having at a young time in my life. He-Man and She-Ra was my favorite shows when I was a kid. They became my heroes as were the actors(counting you and your family.)in my life. I have never met you but you were the best in my life. I will miss you very much. God bless.
Rest in peace Mr.Scheimer and thank you for making my childhood very fun and exciting with He-Man and The masters of the universe. I collected all of the toys comic books and i watched the cartoon as a child religiously when i came home from school. I even enjoyed the live action movie with my man Dolph Lungren. Your legacy will live on and hopefully a new generation can carry on the He-man legacy that you had created.peace and blessings to you and your family.
Your legacy will live forever!!!! Thanks for giving me the best childhood memories ever!!!!I still love and watch He-Man and She-Ra!!!!
Watching Filmation cartoons - He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra in particular - are some of my fondest childhood memories, and many other's as well. Words cannot properly express the gratitude we feel for all the lives that Lou touched. My deepest sympathy and condolences to all his friends and family.
I want to thank Mr.Lou Scheimer, his daughter Erika and all Filmation staff for having made my childhood very special with He-Man, She-Ra and Ghostbusters cartoons. My prayers go to you and your family. Thank you so much. Be at peace.
I will miss you Lou, uncle of He-Man, father of She-Ra, my Facebook friend and A great man forever!!! My Musclor.org site and FB Page is and always will be yours, for eternity, for Eternia! You're gave us the Powerrrrrrr
Thank you Lou for bein apart of my childhood.
It was also a pleasure meeting you last year.
My sincerest thanks and appreciation to Lou Scheimer (and his family). I am not being hyperbolic when I say that I wouldn't be the person I am today without the exposure I received early on to the fantastical words created by Lou and Filmation. Not only did I grow to have an almost limitless imagination, but I also have a fine appreciation for good storytelling and good values as a result of Mr Scheimer's works. Thank you for everything--you will be sorely missed, and the world could use millions more like you!
Like many children of the 80's, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was a huge part of growing up. Every day for show and tell, kids were bringing in nothing but He-Man toys. It got to the point where our teachers asked us to stop and bring something different. We couldn't help it. We watched, played and dreamed Masters of the Universe.
Thirty years later, He-Man is still apart of my life as both a collector and avid fan. For that, I just want to say thanks, Lou. Thanks for your contribution to Filmation and for helping put out good quality cartoons with valuable messages.
Thank you for making my childhood fun, imaginative and fun.
Thank you for making my childhood always happy. He-man was always my hero and you brought it to life with all those stories and wonderfull messages. I will always be thankfull for your work and you meant to us growing up in those wonderfull years.
Dear scheimer family I'm so sorry for your lost as a heman and filmation fan I'm also in pain for the lost of such a great man who made my child hood and every one around the world a great one Louis will be missed he did have the power!
All I can say is Thanks Lou. For making my childhood a brighter & happier place. I grew up with wholesome values(as are my kids) & morals shown through Filmations Masters of the Universe cartoon. I was given the fortunate opportunity as a kid growing up in the 80's to explore my imagination & creativity through your work for Masters of the Universe. With this has come my Passion for MOTU. My thoughts and prayers are with you & your family during this time.
Thank you so much for all of the time, love, and energy you put into so many of our childhoods. You made a huge difference to so many of us. You live on fiercely in our hearts. Wonderful man, wonderful vision, wonderful heart. You are missed and loved.
May you entertain all the kids in Heaven as you once did on Earth. You will forever be our Grandfather. Thank you for a wonderful Childhood.
Thank you! You will be missed! I made this video to honor your memory. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjsxRBqgdUk
Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power invigorated my childhood with adventure and wonder and helped shape my values. I appreciate your devotion and influence to these franchises. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Your cartoons made he who I am today. Thank you Lou... for everything.
Thank you sir for enriching my life with your work. With every person I've met who enjoyed he-man and appeared on my podcast is because of you and I can't put into words how thankful I am. . You leave an incredible legacy...you had the power sir.
Mr. Scheimer, you will be sorely missed. You had a huge impact on my childhood and on the man I am today. Rest in Peace.
I was a big fan of Filmation's action shows, and Flash Gordon is still my #1 favorite Saturday morning cartoon. Thank you for a good part of my childhood.
Thank you Lou. For everything. You inspired myself and my entire generation with your work. I promise that your legacy will live on through my son. No doubt many others will be sharing your legacy with their children as well.
"Remember, it's today that counts...so make it the best day possible." -He-Man
Thank you Lou Scheimer for helping bring so many stories to the world. I grew up watching HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE and learning all the values you put on the end of each episode.

Your cartoons filled my young life with magic and wonder. You will be deeply missed.
Thank you Lou for the memories and the amazing cartoons. I can not wait until I can watch your He-man cartoons with my son.
Just thank you for your work in Filmation Studios and creating great cartoons. What I still want share with my family and friends. Rest in peace,
Louis Scheimer. Thank you again.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was the greatest cartoon ever made and it takes a great man to make such a great cartoon. We will miss you. Thank You.
Filmation Cartoons were the toons of my childhood. And among those, Blackstar fired my young imagination, and He-Man became integral to my self as a person. The lessons these cartoons always taught me and the knowledge that someone cared enough to speak to me directly always stayed with me. Even as a small child I knew I was lucky for this person I was not even aware of until later in life was looking out in whatever way he could, and helped shape my young mind in a thoughtful and kind way. Plus those toons were rad. So glad you were so responsible for so many things about my life, and I never even met you. Good sir, you are loved.
The only thing to say is THANK YOU but even that doesn't seem to say it. I still watch He-Man and now share it with my kids. My 3yr old will come up and say He-Man almost every day, so we will get out a He-Man toy and put in a dvd and watch He-Man and we LOVE it. So Thank You seems right but not enough. GOD bless you LOU and your family.
Thank you Lou for all of the great ideas, characters and stories. You made our childhood great and taught us good morals.
thanks for making my weekends exciting and something to look forward to every saturday and sunday morning
Thank You for enriching our lives with your talent and vision. We will miss you dearly.
~Rest In Eternal Peace Lou Scheimer~

Lou was such a wonderful man. He will be in my prayers and thoughts... Janis Winn
A true mensch - in every sense of the word. One of a kind and an eternal smile that always lit up the room.
Isis to Fat Albert, Tarzan, Lone Ranger, Batman, Shazam, He-Man, She-Ra.. there are just too many ways that you entertained, taught and ultimately, shaped our lives. You were every child's "uncle" telling us tales that made us dream of different times, worlds and a better tomorrow! Though we never met, I will miss you Lou. Thank you!
I never knew or met you personally, but you created a studio, that was responsible for making my childhood more enjoyable. Thank you!
Was a pleasure briefly speaking to you through text Lou- I know that you will always be remembered by the world at large and I'm sure Erika will carry your legacy on!
Thank you Lou.
Heman and the masters of the universe never burned so bright in our hearts. You truley are a master , in your universe.
What a special man he was...he brought so much joy to so many!
Lighting a candle to give tribute to you...may you be at peace...
Lou Scheimer helped shaping the lifes of millions of kids worldwide. His heritage will never be forgotten. Thank you, and good journey.
I was and still is, first and foremost about toys. But I can still appreciate creativity in epic level. Thank you for the moments of joy you provided us with your life's work.
I want to thank Lou for all the work he and his team and Filmation did for many of us. His works were a HUGE Part of my Childhood and helped me become a better human being. My best wishes go towards his family.
Thank you Mr. Scheimer for being such a positive influence in my life. You've earned your rest.
May your memory be eternal :)
Our hearts are saddened by the death of our good friend for over 70 years. Our heartfelt condolences to his widow, Mary Ann Wucher Scheimer, and his children Erika and Lane. Lynn and Maggie Helferd
I'll never forget hurrying home from school to get there before He-Man (and later, She-Ra) began. Seeing and hearing the iconic Filmation title always heralded the beginning of a good time. Thank you, Mr. Scheimer, for bringing a little bit more fantasy and joy into the world.
Thank you, mr. Scheimer for creating a studio that not only made my childhood better, but of others as well around the world.
Lou, I am sorry I never got to say it in person, but you were a part of my childhood and created characters that have given me role models and impacted my life permanently. Thank you for your amazing legacy. We will miss you dearly.
Lou was a great man who made my childhood very enjoyable with all his wonderful shows. You have my deepest sympathies for your loss and I hope you find comfort.
Lou Scheimer was truly one of my heroes. He brought my childhood to life with his magic and vision through Filmation cartoons like He-Man and She-Ra that came on my television each afternoon. The care and thought gone in to each episode Filmation produced was a true legacy to be proud of. It really reached and touched the viewers. He treated the fans like family and I know the times I interacted with Lou will always be cherished memories. He will be missed but never forgotten; he will always have the power.
What a tall and amazingly fruitful limb to have entwined in the family tree. Weaving a legacy of delight through generations of children.
I grew up on Lou's work as a kid. I'll miss him terribly. Thank you, Lou, for the quality art you delivered."
--Thomas R. Skidmore
I never met Lou, but his work had a great impact upon my childhood. His ability to provide quality entertainment within a limited budget while speaking to children and keeping them enthralled will not be forgotten. Lou, you live on through your works, and they will be loved for many generations.
What an amazing man and how fortunate his family and friends were to have shared time with him. I could not stop reading Mr. Scheimer's accomplishments and the wonderful legacy he left for all to enjoy. His son and daughter should be so proud to have had the good fortune of him being their father.
I posted this on facebook and I feel it should be posted here. Erika if you're reading this we met in 2011 at Power Con where I told you the story about how Lou and all the employees helped to save me from committing suicide in my earlier years after being bullied. Anyways here is what I wrote after learning of Lou's death:
There's a lot of words going through my head and heart. And I know I am not the only one. Some people are describing themselves as gutted, others deeply saddened and even more using the phrase "Good Journey". Either way we are all mourning a loss. A gentleman that is so dear to so many people I am proud to call friend. And it's one of those times, I wish we could all be together to comfort each other. We've lost a man that gave us memories of earlier days when our biggest concern was what to have for breakfast as we watched our heroes go on another adventure. A man I personally never got to meet but a man who influenced my life in a way a father should. His name was Lou Scheimer. He was, in part, responsible for the creation of FILMation Studios who brought generations works like The Secrets of Isis, Shazam, Bravestarr and one of the most well known cartoons from the 1980s, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power.
I can't speak of any personal experiences with Lou. I never got that chance. Though, I'd be lying if I didn't play out that chance meeting in my head numerous times. I'd walk up to him and shake his hand and tell him "Thank you." He'd look confused for a moment and then I would explain myself. I would tell him that my parents separated when I was young and He-Man became a father figure to me teaching me lessons about life that I should have been taught by someone that should have been in my life. And that later He-Man and She-Ra would save me from myself in a time when I felt there was no going on.
As time passed and I got older, I learned about Lou. I had always seen Lou's name on many of the cartoons I watched but I knew nothing of what he did. However with the coming of the BCI DVDs I got my chance to learn about the man. His voice was that of King Randor's as well as many others and as I finally got my chance to watch He-Man and She-Ra in its entirety I began to notice his voice all over the place. He even voiced Swift Wind, one of my childhood favorite characters. I watched the documentaries and the like going "Huh, so that's Lou. He seems like a nice guy."
And from what I've learned from fans that met him and the people he worked for, he was a nice guy. In fact nice guy is not even good enough to describe him. He was a wonderful man. He was able to remember fans he had the chance to meet even though he couldn't remember some of the voices he did in He-Man and She-Ra. Lou also did other things, he gave people chances that would allow them to become pop culture icons like Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. He hired people without looking at gender such as Gwen Wetzler who had been fired from FILMation before. And most importantly, he kept animation here in the United States. He created the syndicated cartoon. He pushed the boundaries of cartoons by creating cartoons of quality and also gave us quantity in the creation of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe being the first cartoon based on a toyline. The series created a world full of wonder to so many of us that we still revere in our hearts. And then it continued with the creation of He-Man's twin sister She-Ra, Princess of Power. She-Ra told girls and gay boys that it was okay to be who you are, you can change the world with the gifts you have. And it had a flying unicorn with rainbow hair. Now, that was EPIC! And in fact Lou himself was epic for what he did.
So, my fellow He-fans and She-Ravers we may be grieving tonight and frankly, we are entitled. However let us not loose sight of the great gift Lou gave us: the memories he has brought us, the friends he has brought together and the reminder that we have the power.
I am so sorry for your loss. Us He-Man and She-Ra fans mourn with you.
