The IMDB -- International Movie Database -- has, I have just found, a list of my animation credits.

Sort of ...

Most of them are there. Most of them are collaborations -- with Reaves, Ted Pederson, even one with Steve Barnes.

A few aren't listed -- no Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos. There are some I got credit for and didn't do -- and they also mixed me up with the guy who used to write for Thundercats, also named "Steve Perry." For the record, I didn't write any Thundercats.

That's too bad. Finding out that you wrote for Thundercats would have rocked my world.

You did Gargoyles?!
My son and I used to watch it together!

To be able to say, "I wrote Chuck Norris Karate Kommando episodes" is a personificatino of Awesome that few humans could hope to equal.

Incidentally, as a kid I loved "Spiral Zone," Steve. It wasn't until years later that I realized why.

Hi, Steve. For the record, I am the other Steve Perry, who wrote Thundercats. They have been mixing our stuff up forever, and I'm sorry -- I come out on top, as you are a much better Steve Perry (I first read your work with The Tulameia Gambit) (spelling). I will always be Steve Perry (B) as you, man, are the A list writer. I got cancer here a year ago or so, and there are efforts to help me and my son out with the excessive bills, (my 5 year old son and I were actually sent homeless by it recently) on the internet, so I am sorry if any of that has found it's way to you. If you google our name, followed by Thundercats, you'll get a lot of the pleas for us, and hopefully none of this is interupting your fine work. If it has, I'm very sorry.
Steve Perry (B).
(Oh, a couple of years ago I had the occasion to talk to Jim Steranko (or Harlan "E", I can't recall which one), and he thought I was you, and there's some kind of bad blood there (of which I know nothing). Maybe you'd blog about it, as it always made me very curious.)

Steve --

Sorry to hear about your illness; I hope the prognosis is good.

Far as I know, I don't have any wranglings with either Steranko or Harlan. Never met Jim, and Harlan and I are on speaking terms last time I looked.

Could be another of us -- there's a Steve Perry who is a movie producer, and another book writer. Not even to mention the one who tops the Google list, the rock singer.

Common as dirt, us Steves.

Ah, Spiral Zone. There was a toy show to remember. Once had a character named "Raw Meat," a hillbilly as I recall . And an idiot for a story editor who, after reading scripts for a few months, claimed that so doing made her a writer, too ...
