When Gary Owens died last year we all lost a very dear friend in the world of animation voice acting. Gary once told Johnny Carson on the "Tonight Show" that of all the characters he did, Roger Ramjet was his favorite.

Funny story about Roger Ramjet. I once had the opportunity to buy RogerRamjet.com. I didn't though. Imagine how dumb I would feel if a studio produced a reboot movie and merchandise similar to Peabody & Sherman.

Never knew Roger Ramjet has so many fans until Gary's death kinda shocked many to realize just what a wonderful, talented and funny guy Gary Owens was to kids of all ages.

Rita and Runt from Animaniacs segments.


They probably could've did more segments if it weren't for that money dispute. I think Bernadette Peters (voice and singing voice of Rita.) wanted Warner Bros. to extend her salary. I really liked Bernadette's singing voice. That's one of the main reasons I loved Rita and Runt cartoons.

Rita: Life is goooooddd.

Absolutely!

Rita and Runt was a cartoon gem the like of which we may never see again. This was the segment that signaled to anyone with cartoon chops, "the guys at the WB know what they're doing!".

Amen to that. Cartoons developed around a song or song theme are not as easy as they appear, especially if the music is original to the series itself. 

Fantastic Post my friend !!!

T-Bob was a bit underappreciated. He was the Orko of technology.

Just one of the many that got little to no recognition.

Mina and the Count.

It's kind of a tragedy they never got a full series.
