    piece o' transformers history just showed up in the suburbs of me.

    I just found out that I live in the homeTOWN (not the same house) of Transformers voice actor Scatman Crothers (R.I.P.).

    I had no idea about this, and I've lived here for YEEEEEERS! That's got me feeling kinda miffed though, because he was a famous actor for many years before TF, and yet the local populace doesn't seem to be aware of it. Alot of times I'll see signs outside the cities saying "Welcome to Town X, hometown of famousguy Y, born here in YearZ". But not here.

    They should make it federal law to put on billboards in Transformers former voice actors' hometowns considering Transformers are the center of the universe.

    If Chris Latta didn't get his, I don't see why Scatman should.

    :D

    Yeah, but I can see his point, to an extent. Scatman was an accomplished actor, whose credits when far beyond voice acting.

    Scatman was Hong Kong Phooey fercrissake. Put up a sign. Hell, the podunk logging village Judy Garland lived in until Kindergarden throws a parade for her every year. You've never seen so much fabulous in Northern Minnesota all in one place!

    Ditto. Scatman was a very accomplished actor and deserves some form of recognition. Hell, up in New York the crappy small town I lived in for a year when I was 8 (still have family up there... pathetic) had an annual parade Wizard of Oz parade on L. Frank Baum's (the guy who wrote it) birthday. And boy did it suck arse... talk about a small one horse town throwing a festival! :lol
