    As I recall, Frank Welker was a frequent guest on the Johnny Carson show... And I *think* that's him in the vid with his back to us.

    Could be wrong, though - it's kind of before my time ;) 

    Wouldn't that be awesome, though?

    Maybe it's the guy in the police suit. He looks a little familiar.

    Pairing that with the fact that Botcon tweeted a video of Frank Welker at a roast a while back, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he's there. If we get him AND Cullen? I'm bringing my Dungeons & Dragons DVD set to get autographed.

    That's classic! As for the guest, my first thought was Welker as the guy in the middle.

    I thought Welker didn't do conventions? If I recall, I thought I read a post about it years ago. That would definitely make one of my dreams come true though if he did! He'd definitely be enshrined in the Hall.

    No, he doesn't. Him and Corey Burton don't.

    If Welker's there though, I will have to get someone to grab an autograph for me. The man is a living legend.

    Cullen was the same way up until that Botcon in Pasadena 5 years or so ago. So who knows? People change!

    You're right. I'm hoping he's there because something autographed by him would be priceless for me - assuming he'd even do autographs.

    Have they ever said why? I know the fandom overall has a bad reputation, but guests at Botcon usually get really positive attention (at least from what I've seen).

    This is what I heard too, but autographs were also a solid "no" until OTFCC04 somehow managed to get them for the dinner exclusive lithographs.
