    • Peter Newman: They (episodes) began running in the Fall and we were still recording when the word came back that it's (ThunderCats) is a hit! It's a hit! I'm sure the thought crossed my mind, 'That means will do more, doesn't it?'"

    • Peter Newman: I wanted Tygra to be a real guy, a man's man, and so he would help Lion-O develop as a. . . into maturity. So sometimes when I listened to Tygra I said, 'Boy this is a square dude, kinda.'

    • Peter Newman: We had the freedom to create these characters any way the director would let us, basically, and do whatever sounds and give whatever expression we could. (Talking about ThunderCats.)

  • The most talented voice actor of all time!

    Peter Newman is truly one of the all-time greats in my book. The voices he did on ThunderCats and SilverHawks are the most wonderful character voices I\'ve ever heard in any cartoon and the heroic characters he voiced in those shows are among my all time favorite characters of any genre, animated or not. He voiced ThunderCats Tygra, Wilykat, and Bengali. Tygra is my favorite cartoon character of all time and Wilykat and Bengali aren\'t far behind. He also showed an incredible amount of talen by doing the voice of Monkian.

    It\'s hard to believe with his talents and his wonderful voice, that he doesn\'t have a much longer list of credits.moreless
