Coming on November 10th to the Pasadena Convention Center will the inaugural Toon-Con. The goal of the convention is to “celebrate the artists, creators, and voice actors that make our favorite cartoons and animated films come to life” and with the guests they have lined up I think they will!
Some of the guests they have lined up include voice actors Jim Cummings (who has done so many voices for Disney, it is tough to list them all), and Terry McGoverns (the voice of Launchpad McQuack, and many other roles), and more.
They will also be bringing long time San Diego Comic-Con mainstay Scott Shaw!, writer Buzz Dixon, Disney Legend Floyd Norman, and many other great guests from the world of animation.
