The TFW2005 News Team sadly reports that Ken Samson, who voiced Hound in The Transformers Generation One series, passed away on October 10, 2012 due to suffering from a stroke; he was 85 years old. While Mr. Samson brought Hound to life in G1, he played many other roles, notably Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh. The talents of the voice actors brought much personality and much magic to the well-loved Generation One show, and Ken Samson's voicing of Hound is certainly among those. His contributions will always be cherished by Transformers fans. We here at TFW2005.com extend our best sympathetic thoughts, wishes, and prayers to the family and friends for their loss.

RIP.

Hound was one of my favorities, and even set up as 'the one the kids can relate to' before they shuffled him out for Bumblebee.

Hound and Rabbit.

I'm more sad by the fact that he was Rabbit than Hound, that Winnie the Pooh show was one of my favorites growing up. I think I still have a couple of the VHS tapes with episodes on them.

I was just watching Arival from Cybertron today. I always think, when ever i see it, that it would've been alot better to keep Hound and Spike together instead of Bumblebee. I've always wanted to know why they changed it. And just think, if they never changed it, it would've been Hound in the movies.

This is very sad news. Mr Sansom.

Rest in peace.

Sad, though he had a good run, and a great career. It's troubling that we're getting to the time where it seems like more and more of the people who participated in the original "golden age" of Transformers are going to be passing away.

Always sad to hear about the passing of a voice actor. They provide the heart and spirit of the characters they portray for millions of kids all over the world. Rest in peace Mr. Sansom with the knowledge that you entertained a generation and that your legacy will entertain many more generations to come.

He'll be missed. Hound was a favorite of mine, in no small part thanks to his prominent role in the opening MTMTE miniseries in the cartoon. He had this great "nice person" voice that stood out among the Autobot cast.

Hound was one of my favorite characters in the cartoon and Mr. Sansom's excellent voice work certainly played a part in that. Wish I could have met him at a Botcon. RIP

We now have to worry about Tom Kenny as Rabbit Now.

I'm very sad to hear of this. I extend my prayers to the family. Hound is part of the core G1 cast, so of course he's a special character for me.

Hound was my favourite G1 character when I was a little one. RIP sir.
WarConvoy
As you all know by now. Hound was one of two of my favorite Transformer.
The main part of my love for him came from his voice. Ken Sansom brought the character to live. My wife and I also love watch Winnie the Pooh.
He will be missed by many.

Ken Sansom thank you for entertaining so many.
