Looks like Bowser ended up stuck on his castle after all... same year as Tony Rosato too...

I did like his Mario cartoon work, especially Tryclyde

RIP Harvey Atkin.

He was one of Toronto's best VA's.

He had a great, distinctive and memorable voice.

My favourite roles of his being Sam, King Koopa and the Leon's voice over guy.

He will be missed.

RIP Harvey Atkin. His role as King Koopa in the Mario cartoons is one of the reason why the three Mario TV series is a guilty pleasure for me.

I remember hearing Leon's commercials as a kid and recognizing him instantly from all his cartoon work. Koopa, Jacob Two-Two's dad, and Sam... Toronto lost a great veteran VA today. RIP.

Loved your work as King Koopa and Crag, and I've heard nothing but good things about your take on Sam.

Thank you for all the fond memories.

Dang it, first Romero, than Landau, now Atkin. I thought he was one of the most entertaining of the Toronto voice actors and I still standby, is the most entertaining portrayal of King Koopa and Sam

Happy Birthday Harvey Atkin!!!

To me, he'll always be the perfect King Koopa. He's just so slimy and evil as well as endlessly entertaining. I just never get bored of his awesome performance.

I also loved him as Sasquatch and Tryclyde.

I wish the guys at Tell tale had kept him for the Sam and Max games. Or at least Poker Night 2.

His voice was just made for lines like "I could brazenly bluff my way through this hand. But since I just said that out loud, I think I'll just fold instead."

Happy Birthday Harvey Atkin!

This guy has one of the best voices in all of Toronto, he was excellent as Sam, King Koopa, Sasquatch and he's also The Leon's guy too.

I also remember seeing him as a camp counsellor in the movie Meatballs.

@A-Log Huh, now that you mention it, I do sorta hear that in his Sam. Guess I'm just so used to his gravelly-type roles that it never occurred to me before.
