I know it's unpleasantly moronic of me to make this journal, but I read the news reports today, and kind of wanted to talk about it.

An actor, who goes by the name of Harvey Atkin, has died at the age of 74 this week, due to his long battle against cancer. At first, I thought it wasn't that much of a big deal, but then when I did my research to see if it was true, I was aloof. He was pretty much the person who voiced many characters, villainous or heroic, in few of the childhood shows I've watched when I was just a snobby little brat. His characters he acted as throughout his career was Sam from Sam and Max (the show and the games), Alan R. from Law and Order (Aka Everybody Goes to Court: The Show), Morty from Jacob Two-Two, Mr. Jones from Hello Kitty and Friends, and Pox and Bumboo from Sailor Moon. Seriously, he did all of these voices as according to his iMDB.

One of the most notable voices I didn't mention, however, was his signature character, and the one that made up the summer my lil' self went to visit my grandmother.

Yes, I'm referring to the bastard turtle named King Koopa from the Super Mario Bros. Super Show.

That damning no-good lummox in a poor yet successful low-budget animated TV show, Harvey Atkin voiced him in almost every episode, and I didn't give a care in the world about the credits, other than just seeing this Koopa and the Mario Bros. on the screen and die from laughter. I would remember the days I would turn on the TV just so I can watch King Koopa say rather bizarre jokes, whether it was political or not. He pretty much taught me what not to become in the near future, and thank god he did.

Just learning that my favorite actor died is just like a heart skipping a beat, just an hour after finishing Classic Mode as Bowser in Smash Bros. It really broke my heart to see him go, along with the many other actors and singers that died this year.

To end this journal, I'll leave a quote from King Koopa. It was hard to find a good and reasonable one, because it's a crappy TV show in general, but it's for the best.

"Hold your applause! I know it's a genius idea, but I have them all the time!"
- Harvey Atkin (King Koopa); Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
