SATURDAY MORNINGS FOREVER REMEMBERS MARCIA WALLACE by WOLVERINE25TH
SATURDAY MORNINGS FOREVER REMEMBERS MARCIA WALLACE
The new memorial images celebrating the lives of those who had brought us much joy on Saturday Mornings.

Marcia Wallace was a fixture on television for years, from sitcoms to game shows to cartoons. Her best-known role was that of Edna Krebabble on THE SIMPSONS, but on Saturday mornings she lent her voice for guest-appearances in BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, CAMP CANDY, DARKWING DUCK, THE ADDAMS FAMILY (1992), DISNEY'S ALADDIN and THE ANGRY BEAVERS.

The new memorial images celebrating the lives of those who had brought us much joy on Saturday Mornings.

The legendary funnyman Robin Williams only had one major starring role on Saturdays; that of Mork in the spin-off animated series MORK & MINDY/LAVERNE & SHIRLEY/FONZ HOUR. However, he also made a guest appearance on Richard Pryor's short-lived Saturday morning vehicle, PRYOR'S PLACE.

SATURDAY MORNINGS FOREVER REMEMBERS: BUD COLLYER by WOLVERINE25TH
SATURDAY MORNINGS FOREVER REMEMBERS: BUD COLLYER
The new memorial images celebrating the lives of those who had brought us much joy on Saturday Mornings.

Bud Collyer was the original actor to portray Superman in animated form in the highly-regarded Fleischer/Famous Studios theatrical shorts. His performance was notable for the subtle change to his voice whenever the character changed from Clark Kent into Superman. Because of this, Filmation tapped Collyer to reprise the role in what would become their first animated project, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN in 1966. Not only was it their first, but it would become the first televised animated series based on a super hero comic--the first of many.

CHRIS BUCHNER
United States
Originally starting out as an artist/writer, Chris graduated to strictly writing due to a decreasing amount of free time and the discovery he was just better at it. Though he had been making comics of some kind for most of his life, his first foray into comics came in 2005 when he joined the staff of the Spider-Man fan site Spiderfan as a reviewer. Colleague Robert J. Sodaro then introduced him to the Comicbook Artists Guild in 2006, a national networking organization that brings creators of all levels together.

Chris' first publication break came with CAG's 7th anthology issue. Then-president Keith J. Murphey approached Chris about finishing off the origin of the group's mascot, Commander CAG, as well as adapting a story he submitted to fit a character Murphey co-created for an earlier issue.

In 2007, Chris joined the online blog dedicated to books, Estella's Revenge, as their comic writer and reviewer. He also joined with 215ink and did advanced reviews for several indy comics, as well as weekly reviews of the week's new releases.

In 2008, Chris' first editorial credit came into play when he was invited by Phil Clark to be part of Iconic, CAG's all-ages anthology focusing on historic and public domain characters. Chris also ended up writing a unifying Grandpa bumper story conceived with Murphey for the book. Sodaro helped Chris fulfill a life-long dream of working for Marvel by recommending him for writing duties on Marvel's new Official Index series; on which several Spiderfan staffers also worked. Chris was asked to audition to be the replacement writing on Guild Works Productions' Hell's Blood series by creator Hector Rodriguez. He ended up co-writing the second issue with Liam Webb due to both their submissions being coincidentally similar.

In 2009, Chris became the publication coordinator for CAG and proceeded to head up the next issue of Iconic, their first prose anthology Worlds Beyond, and the return of their regular anthology series with a new name and format. Chris was also made editor-in-chief of the reorganized GWP, now called Guild Works Publications, and is helping to oversee their pin-up book Best Shots, their zombie anthology Worst Case Scenario: Outbreak, and Hell's Blood, of which he will also continue to write.

Interests
Many of those following my page, or who have visited frequently, have seen in the last 2 years I have posted a number of banners involving various Saturday morning TV shows. These banners, changed out every week, are meant to adorn not only my personal Facebook page, but my Facebook group Saturday Mornings Forever where I try to get people reminiscing about a formerly magical day when all we had to worry about was what cereal to eat while watching TV.

A year after starting my Facebook group, I decided to try and turn the concept into a book. Sure, there have been books that chronicle every TV show ever made, or every cartoon ever made, or even tried to pretend they were about Saturday morning television while actually being a sermon on the decline of quality on TV, but, as far as I've seen, never really been a book DEDICATED strictly to Saturday morning programming.

But, here I am, plugging away at these entries for a good year and making very slow progress. See, I love special features. I love the background of things. So, my entries are not only about the show, but as much information BEHIND the show as I can find. So, there's a lot of research involved. And then I love episode guides, so finding ones I can cultivate from as well as accurate airdates is also a bit more research. As such, I tried to speed up the process by working with shows with low episode counts. As progress gets made, I get antsy about showing off what I've done to the world. After much deliberation and some advice, I found a solution to that:

A blog.

That's right, to build up interest in my eventual book as well as get some immediate feedback on what I've been doing, I've started an official SMF blog. Updated regularly every Saturday, I discuss the TV shows and anything else I can think of related to Saturday morning. So, if you're a Saturday morning lover as well (especially if you've been liking my various banners), head on over and check out my blog. And feel free to submit any feedback...all is welcome!

It's on my TO DO list. Since I began the SMF blog my focus has been more on that than making the banners, but I do whip up a banner as I get to a particular show for the Facebook editions.

Unfortunately, Felix isn't scheduled for this year, but if I have extra time I'll see what I can cobble together.

It's coming. These banners are done randomly on the basis of A) what pops into my head, B) the availability of decent images to work from, and C) how much time I have to dedicate to making images decent if they don't already exist.
