Alongside Joe Ruby, Ken Spears co-created no only Scooby-Doo! but the much-adored Mega Man animated series from the early nineties. Ken Spears worked closely with Capcom to develop the show, which ultimately aired in the U.S in 1994. Ken Spears would go on to direct numerous episodes during the show's two season run.
“Ken will forever be remembered for his wit, his story-telling, his loyalty to family, and his strong work ethic,” said Ken Spears' son, Kevin Spears. "Ken has been a role model for us throughout his life and he will continue to live on in our hearts.”
Cheesy as it was, I absolute adore the Ruby-Spears cartoon. And I have both Ken and Joe to thank. Rest well, king.
