Actor Dick Gautier, best known (to us) as Rodimus Prime passed away yesterday at 85. His other Transformers voice work included his own gun (Firebolt) as well as Apeface and a Quintesson scientist. This was in addition to his already impressive voice acting credits. Everything from Go-Bots to Sogmaster to Serpentor to Spike (in Tom & Jerry) and even a role in Batman: The Animated Series.
His live action roles were just as eclectic but he’s probably best known as Hymie from “Get Smart” but he also had appearances in Silk Stockings, Freddy’s Nightmares, and Charles in Charge. Oddly enough he also played Batman himself in a TV commercial alongside Burt Ward and Yvonne Craig.
