There are several people who have had a great impact on our web site and the SatAM community as a whole, and we at Saturday Morning Sonic would like to thank them for everything they’ve done and continue to do.
The late Ben Hurst - While by no means the only writer on SatAM, Mr. Hurst was certainly the most well known and well respected by the fan community. He frequently talked with fans about the making of the show and what was planned for the lost third season, shared production materials like storyboards, and always demonstrated care for the characters and the unfinished SatAM story. His unexpected passing in August 2010 left a void in our community, but his stories will forever live on. Thanks for everything, Ben—the stories, the laughs, your generosity, and your kindness. You will be missed.
Brian Ward and Shout! Factory - Even though fans would have been more than happy with any sort of official SatAM DVD release, Producer Brian Ward at Shout! Factory put the extra effort into making the long-awaited SatAM boxset release into something great. Mr. Ward spent months on the Fans United for SatAM message boards talking with fans, answering questions, and asking for input while he put together the DVDs, and remained in contact with fans even after its release. We thank you for hearing our cries and literally making our dream come true.
