Book Review: Creating The Filmation Generation

Creating The Filmation Generation is a fascinating autobiography by Lou Scheimer, one of the original founders of Filmation, an animation studio that produced He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Fat Albert, Star Trek, Mighty Mouse, Tom and Jerry, Batman, and much more. TwoMorrows Publishing is behind this book and it’s a quality read through and through. It takes the reader from 1928 up until 2010, just three years prior to Scheimer’s death. In addition to the insightful text, this book features great photos, posters, and imagery befitting an animation icon.

At nearly 300 pages, Creating The Filmation Generation is chock full of information to enjoy. Whether you grew up watching one of Scheimer’s cartoons, as I did with He-Man, or you’re simply interested in learning more about an entertainment industry luminary, Creating The Filmation Generation is a worthwhile read and I highly recommend it.
