  • My old boss, and a great guy, Lou Scheimer, TV Cartoon Producer, has Died at 84. Awwwww Lou, I loved this guy! He was a terrific boss during the He-Man and She Ra years and a terrific ally when I moved over to CBS Sat. Morning programming. When the Cosby Show became a huge hit for NBC prime time I went all out to put Fat Albert on the CBS schedule just to rub it in the Peacock’s face. I confided to Lou I didn’t think I could last long at CBS because of the shrewish martinet and the milquetoast executives above me. He calmly replied, “Don’t worry, kid, everyone thinks their asshoies anyway, you’ll do just fine.” http://nyti.ms/16peyPU
