Louis Scheimer
1928 - 2013
BORN

DIED
2013
October 19, 1928 - October 17, 2013 Los Angeles, CA - Louis (Lou) Scheimer, the renowned and much loved animation pioneer has died at his home at age 84, just two days shy of his 85th birthday, from Parkinson's Disease. Lou is survived by his beloved daughter Erika Scheimer and his son Lane Scheimer. Erika Scheimer, who worked with her father for decades at Filmation, the company founded by Lou, Norm Prescott, and Hal Sutherland in the early sixties, had been at his side over these final days. Also on hand were his devoted daughter-in-law, Amy Rosenberg, and sundry close friends, former employees and relations. Lou's wife Jay Scheimer, had passed in 2009. Lou often said that Jay was truly the woman behind the man, and she was greatly instrumental in making Filmation a reality. He often said that he could never have survived the early years without Jay's support. They were a most colorful couple; back in the day, some referred to them as the "George and Gracie" of the animation crowd. Lou graduated from Carnegie-Mellon in 1952, married in 1953 and moved to Los Angeles in 1955 to work in the animation industry. In 1962, Filmation Studios was created and became one of world's premiere animation houses. During this early period, the studio produced TV commercials and documentaries. In 1965, the studio unveiled its first Saturday morning series, "Superman", a solid hit which ran for three years on CBS. Soon to follow were a string of shows, including the arrival of "Aquaman", "Batman" and the phenomenally rated "Archies" show. Lou was widely credited with starting Saturday morning cartoons. From the "Archies" cartoons came the number one hit song "Sugar, Sugar", which has been re-recorded through the years some 29 times [and counting!]. It was also the number two song of the 1960's, second only to the Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand". A number one song from a cartoon? This was the first animated show to include original songs with each episode. This was one of many "firsts" achieved throughout the life of Filmation. The praise from critics and viewers alike was even more enthusiastic for Filmation's proudest animation achievement, "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids". In its twelve year run, "Fat Albert" was acclaimed by parents, educators and children everywhere. It received countless honors, including a number of Emmy nominations and the prestigious Peabody Award. It was the show that Lou was most proud of. From then on, he made it his life's mission to produce children's shows that not only were entertaining, but also contained pro-social values and messages. After "Fat Albert" aired in the early seventies, Filmation had truly come into its own as a giant in the field of animation. Shows broadcast on CBS, NBC and ABC in that time period include "Groovie Ghoulies", "The Brady Kids", "Mission Magic", "Jerry Lewis", the "Fabulous Funnies", "Mighty Mouse and Heckle and Jeckle, "Tom and Jerry", "Space Sentinels", "Lassie", and "Gilligan's Island". Subsequently, Lou ventured into live-action shows with such hits as "Shazam-Isis Hour", the original "Ghostbusters", "Ark II", "Space Academy" and "Jason of Star Command". In addition, Filmation made a triumphant foray into theatrical feature production with "Journey Back to Oz" in 1973. That year also marked the first of many prime time specials, including "Oliver Twist", "Treasure Island", "Fat Albert" and "A Snow White Christmas". In 1981, Filmation unveiled "Blackstarr", a sword and sorcery fantasy that rocketed to the top of the Saturday morning ratings. This was not surprising considering Filmation's acknowledged leadership in producing quality animated adventure shows. Beginning with "Fantastic Voyage" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" in 1967, the studio went on to produce the now classic, Emmy award winning animated "Star Trek" series, as well as animated versions of "Tarzan", "Zorro", "The Lone Ranger", "Flash Gordon". In 1983, Lou created the marketplace for first-run syndication of animated shows. Filmation took on its most ambitious project to date: the "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" series. Over the years Filmation produced 130 "He-Man" episodes directly for syndication. Once again, Lou made positive messages a hallmark of the show. The results: another winner, both in domestic ratings and in unprecedented international sales in thirty countries in the first year alone. Two years later, in 1985, Filmation brought He-Man's twin sister "She-Ra, Princess of Power" to the syndicated world. Lou always felt that little girls were underserved in the world of super heroes. He made it a cause to change that with She-Ra. It too was a huge success at home and abroad. After Filmation closed, the now legendary Lou Scheimer had grown to be one of the most loved men in the animation industry. He became known for trying to keep animation in the U.S., and he fought hard to do so. Additionally, it was of great importance to him that Filmation train the next generation of animators in America. Many of Lou's former employees can, to this day, be found working at Disney, DreamWorks, Pixar, and more. Indeed, many will tell you that it was Lou who gave them their start in the business. Lou's legacy of shows saw a whole new life in recent years, as DVD collections of his many shows began to proliferate in the 1990's. The fact that a new generation of kids would be able to watch his Filmation shows gave Lou endless joy. Hundreds of fan mail letters and emails just keep on coming. Do an online search and read all about it. It is a great American, rags-to-riches story you will much enjoy. In lieu of flowers, Lou and his family kindly request that donations to Parkinson's research be made in his honor.

Thank you for so many wonderful years, Lou! I arrived at the studio looking for a job, pushing my baby in a stroller because I didn't have a car. I looked so unprofessional walking in with a baby in the stroller and just wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, but I wasn't planning to interview that day. I thought I'd just grab an application and be on my way. How shocked I was that you wanted to see me right away! I protested because of the way I looked, but you didn't care about any of that. You interviewed me right on the spot, and I started the next day! Best job of my life working for you, Norm and Arthur. Thank you, Lou! (And my baby is now 42 years old!)

I can't believe it's been six years since this wonderfully talented gentleman, Lou Scheimer, departed from this life after many years of producing quality children's programming throughout the 1960s to the 1980s. Anytime a show that he along with Hal Sutherland and Norm Prescott produced, whether it aired on either ABC, CBS, NBC or in syndication, I couldn't wait to watch it. Thank you, Lou for making Saturday mornings worth looking forward to and continue to rest in paradise.

Lou was the best cousin in my youth. Every Saturday until he was about 16 My grandfather and I went to his family store across from Westinghouse High School. My grandfather helped with the store's books and I got to read the comic books Lou had in great supply! Later he introduced me to my husband, Lou's best friend, and I later introduced him to his love, Jay. Lots of great memories and much love now sorely missed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
