    Botcon twitter feed posted a link to a Roast of George Burns featuring Frank Welker. This came in yesterday when they post a weekly update on Botcon, this could be one of FP's hints to Frank Welker making his debut at Botcon, could this mean he'll be the recipient of the Hall of Fame honor this year.

    This is a rumor as of now, but FP loves giving clues.

    Thanks for posting this!

    I just watched the video! It was brilliant! :D 

    I had no idea that Mr. Welker ever appeared on Dean Martin's program!

    I would sincerely love to see him as a guest at Botcon! :D 

    Here's the video for convenience:

    YouTube - Frank Welker roasts George Burns



    Can anyone else imagine just how incredible it would be to have both Frank Welker and Peter Cullen as Botcon guests at the same time? :D

    Really? He's one of the best voice actors of all time! I'm gonna need a fifteen page report from you on the work of Frank Welker due Monday.

    That was an awesome video! :)  He looks so young in it!

    If Frank Welker is a guest at Botcon this year, I think the easiest way for the Botcon crew to handle the autograph session is to have a joint session with both Cullen and Welker (I'd like to think it's a safe bet that Cullen will be there this year). One big line and you can get one or both autographs on one shot. :lol  otherwise no one will be in the dealer's room or the panels.

    It would be an epic panel if the two of them were together. The only problem would be which would you choose to do, see the in the panel together, or stand in line for most of the day waiting for said panel to get done so you could get an Autograph when the panel was done.

    With Guests as popular as Cullen and Welker, FP will do what they've done in the past, have the autographs in the morning and then the panel around 4pm.
