#Fact
1While most of the voice actors on Filmation productions recorded their lines together as an ensemble, Lou felt he wasn't good enough to perform together with trained actors, so he always recorded his lines by himself, after hours. The pitch of his voice was often changed by using a 'harmonizer' which could control the pitch without altering the speed of the sound.
2Scheimer used the pseudonym "Erik Gunden" whenever he was credited as a voice actor. The last name was taken from his father's original surname: "Gundenscheimer" (which was later shortened to Sheimer). The first name was Lou's middle name, which he was not given by his parents, but instead by his wife Jay, who felt that he should have one.
3Sheimer used the pseudonym 'Erika Lane' whenever he was credited as a composer on one of his productions. This name came from his two children, Erika Scheimer and Lane Scheimer and had also been used as a character name on the 1967 Filmation series "Journey to the Center of the Earth" .
4Scheimer and frequent future collaborator Alan Oppenheimer were both in the Carnegie Tech Class of 1952, but never met each other in school since Scheimer was in art and Oppenheimer in drama. They found out years later while working at Filmation when Alan noticed Lou was wearing a Carnegie Tech ring.
5Scheimer attended Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh, between September 1948 and June 1952. Andy Warhol was one year ahead of him because Lou had spent some time in the army.
6Survived by his second wife Mary Ann and children Erika and Lane.
7Was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and had quadruple heart bypass surgery.
8Co-founder, with Norm Prescott and Hal Sutherland, of animation company, "Filmation Studios", in 1963.
9Father of Erika Scheimer and Lane Scheimer.
