Hal Sutherland Death Rumors
captain_slinky wrote in saturday_am_80s

Last night our Twitter account was tagged about a dozen times with the tweets and re-tweets claiming that legendary Filmation co-founder Hal Sutherland had died. I've been unable to confirm this rumor yet, but he lives about 5 minutes away from my house so I'll drive by there this morning and casually/discreetly try to ascertain if he's still, y'know... "With Us".

Not that any members of this community would need a reminder, but what you'd probably remember Hal best from would be He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe. Most of his Saturday Morning work was done in the 1970's on stuff like the Star Trek animated series, Flash Gordon, and all the pre-Super Friends DC Comics super heroes (Batman, Aquaman, Superman etc).

Fingers crossed that he's still with us!

That post to an unofficial page appears to be the first mention of Hal passing and it doesn't mention a source. It is from someone in the Boston area. I'm hoping it's wrong...

I'm pretty sure it's wrong... I've got feelers out to Jerry Beck, Mark Evanier and Scott Shaw.
