John Ratzenberger is best known for playing mail carrier Cliff Clavin on one of the most popular sitcoms of all time “Cheers”. He had read for the part of Norm Peterson, but after the audition, he could tell they weren’t going to give him the part. Sensing an opportunity, he asked if they had written a “bar know-it-all”, which the producers decided was a great idea. Cliff became known for his outlandish stories of plausible half-truths, irrelevant trivia, and ignorant misinformation, and was known for being an overall pretentious blowhard.

Star Wars fans world wide know John for his role as Major Derlin as seen in “Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back” and those same fans will recognize him from another huge franchise; “Superman 1 & 2”! Horror fans remember him from “House II” and “Motel Hell”, films which are on the opposite side of the spectrum when it comes to what kids know him for today!

John’s popularity has crossed over from the sitcom, Sci-Fi and fantasy worlds into another huge demographic, being recognized by kids off all ages for his various roles in the Disney /Pixar animated films! John is the only actor to voice a character in every single Pixar film ever made. A running “gag” that he and director John Lasseter decided on together. John never tells fans which character he voices, he wants them to be surprised and figure it out for themselves when they see the film. John can currently be heard in the films “Coco” and “The Incredibles 2” and reprised his character role as Hamm for “Toy Story 4”!

Ratzenberger will only be attending iMagicon on Saturday and Sunday of the three-day event.

Rick Farmiloe

Farmiloe has been animating childhoods for more than 30 years, and is best known for breathing hilarity into iconic Disney sidekicks Scuttle, LeFou, and Abu in the beloved Academy Award-winning films The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.

This American animator was first bitten by the cartooning bug at age five, while watching Walt Disney’s beautifully drawn, feature-length cartoon masterpiece, Pinocchio. At age twelve, after years of creating his own cartoons for family and friends, Farmiloe was determined to be a Disney animator. In January 1982, after only one portfolio review, he was hired by Walt Disney Productions.

During his 11 years under contract with Disney, Farmiloe animated on seven features, which also included The Black Cauldron, The Great Mouse Detective, Oliver and Company, and The Rescuers Down Under.

Beyond his body of work for Disney, Farmiloe’s feature film credits include The Swan Princess, The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Shrek, Rugrats Go Wild, Curious George, The Simpsons Movie, The Boxtrolls, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, and four Tom and Jerry direct-to-DVD films.

In 2011, Farmiloe was an animator on two Annie Award-winning productions: Adam and Dog, which also received an Oscar nomination, and Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters. In 2015, Farmiloe animated on yet another Annie Award winner, Coca-Cola’s Man and Dog.

Don’t miss out on seeing this amazing animator at this year’s iMagicon. Farmiloe will be attending all three days of iMagicon – April 28-30, 2023. 

Bob Hall

Bob also did a slew of Movie adaptations including Willow, Dark Man, and arguably the worst superhero movie ever, the 1980s Captain America. On the other hand, check out the graphic novel, Emperor Doom, which is probably Bob’s best work for Marvel.

In the 1990s, Bob began working for Valiant and was given the option to choose a project. He was naturally drawn to Shadowman. Shadowman had the most potential, set in New Orleans, featuring a musician and involving voodoo, all stuff Bob could dig into. He wrote, and eventually drew the book for thirty-five issues. It was very successful, but was eventually rebooted to support a video game while Bob moved on to moved onto to create Armed and Dangerous, a crime series and probably Bob finest work in comics.
