Bumblebee...In His Own Words :)
- Christine Klunder
A must for any fan of early 1980's cartoons
Informative, Clever, Highly Entertaining
"No bars held" feel
First hand experience. Hearing his story in his own voice brings with it a greater understanding.
Near the end of the book when Mr. Gilvezan talks about the last Transformer episode.
I would recommend this read to not only Transformer fans but anyone who considers themselves a fan of the early 1980's cartoons. It would also benefit anyone interested in becoming a voice over actor as the story is part of the history of voice over acting
